Just like The last Black Unicorn, I looked for this book due to it being highly acclaimed.
And after reading it, only one word comes to mind- EXQUISITE.
As a writer, you are told to write a book that you would love to read. And for me, this was not a book I would just have loved to read, it was a book I would have loved to write.
Its that good. The reviewers were right on this one. Its a masterpiece.
The whole book is quite short and looking at it from a bird’s eye, its quite a simple tale. One you’ve most likely heard about in your village.
What sets Lola Shoneyin apart, is her technique of writing if I may call it so.
I have enjoyed reading this book.. but above that, when I begin writing my book, this one shall be reread for an example of what a well written book looks like.
