Is it the language that is written in or is it the fact that is deeply psychological and the level of understanding of human nature is beyond anything I have read before.
It supposed to, as the back cover note suggested, describe every day life, and it does. Seems like nothing is happening on those pages yet it's impossible to put this book down. It seems as there is no action in there, yet so much is happening. It seems as if everything was happening slow in this story yest the book finishes too soon.
Brilliant writer. I already looked up other of his bookks and look forward to be mesmerized again. Thank you Ben.
I find that so many excellent black writers hail from Nigeria. It certainly is a credit to that African nation and its people to produce such great literary minds from Soyinka to Achebe, to Okri, et al. It just goes to show that no one culture (or race) can lay sole claim, either directly or indirectly, to sophistication, intelligence, or indeed, literary excellence.
This story is not for the sensitive reader, who might want to escape from reality. Leaves you with so much to think about and a desire to read more from this amazing author. One of the best books I have read in a long time
