It is definitely a page turner that I almost couldn’t put down. It is worth the read and then some. I would definitely recommend this book if you’re into dialogue and are searching for a book to read.
Living in the US, I also appreciated learning about the realities of South Africa in a humorous way, even when the topics themselves aren't so humorous.
To sum it up, a variety of characters, good humor, and a bit of cultural enlightenment...a pretty nice mix if you ask me!
The most difficult aspect of the book is the large number of characters and how the author flips from one to the next to the next with every chapter. It's a great concept, but for me personally, it was hard to keep them straight. I think it would work well as a movie. With that said, each character is revisited and more than once, so by the end, it all comes together well.
The story is about a very witty dinner party with multiple characters and the happening and surrounding with a south African backdrop. their life, the corruption , the politics and how and what they go through in their day to day life.
It is truly said by the author that the story is a main course and the ending is a dessert...it is just amazing how the story ends. loved the concept , the way it is written and the characters are presented.
The main idea of the story is that a group of people are guests at a dinner. Each chapter looks at the gathering from a different guest's perspective. Now, this is highly original as I have never read a book that was written in this manner. You get a unique glimpse into the guests' respective motivations as well as a look into South African culture. It is definitely worth a read.
