Abigail, I wish I could have helped you...,
This review is from: Becoming Abigail (Paperback)
I honestly haven't ever read a book quite like this. It is in one word 'wow!'
Short, painful (almost masochistic to read, nearly like self flagellating), raw and honest.
You will be glad to get to the end of the book but you won't dare skip a page in the process.
Abigail's story couldn't have been told in any other or possibly better form or manner. Chris Abani is such a mature, heavily talented writer and he manipulates and owns his language.
This is my second read of his works and I will keep on reading him. He speaks for the underdogs who have no voice, no easy feat.
Chris Abani makes me proud to be Nigerian and Ibo and reminds me of the possibilities.
