I love reading on different african cultures written by different african authors and of all cultures in Africa, i find the nigerian culture the most written about especially the Yoruba and Igbo cultures. In most cases, there is usually a christian take in those novels for instance in half a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozie, she beautifully brings out the Igbo and Yoruba cultures through different characters and how these cultures affect the decisions this characters make. Christianity is also a major theme in the novel. I cant wait to read this novel by Adeola. It does sound interesting. I especially love that you mention the aspect of culture and Christianity in your review.
Exactly! I hope you find the book to your liking.

This was a fantastic review! Aside from the editing errors, this book has a lot to look forward to within its pages. I love traveling to new places in books and learning about new cultures! I also love that this book has realistic characters and a sweet romance story.

Thanks to this review I'm a Nigerian! The author gives good explanation of our culture, which is the most lovely but poor punctuations should be put into consideration.

Welcome to OBC! I hope you can read the book soon. I'm sure you will be familiar with the traditions, costumes, and dishes. And enjoy the love stories, too.

Latest Review: Truth Come to Light by Taryn Feldmann

Post by bellajavier »

The books seem like a good read if we dodge the grammatical errors. The looming heartbreak has me at the edge of my seat, and thank God there is not explicit scenes, they take away the true Essence of the book. Your review was absolutely amazing to read, and I'm glad you enjoyed the book (minus the minor nuisance)
