So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.
The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma
This book was quite something. It took me on an emotional roller-coaster. With his debut novel, Chigozie Obioma has definitely joined the league of top West African writers such as Chinua Achebe, Wole Soyinka and Chimamanda Adichie Ngozi. I will share my review of the book before the end of this month.
Desert Flower by Waris Dirie
So far, I am disappointed by this book. I feel like it’s a book that is set in Africa but wasn’t really meant for African readers. The exact setting is Somali but then again, the book sort of refers to Somali as Africa hence creating that misconception that Africa is a country. There are so many references that just annoyed me such as ‘The big African lorry’ or “she stabbed him with an African knife”… seriously what does that even mean?
The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan
So I have stopped reading Desert Flower for now to read this book which will be reviewed by my book club this weekend. It is actually really good so far so I am sure I will be done with it by Friday.
I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
The Choice by Nicholas Spark
