it was ok
bookshelves: africa
Read in June, 2008

Gives a feel of life in upper middle class Nigeria. Mostly focused on how crappy it is to be a woman in Africa - even educated, still only token freedoms allowed. I didn't know how unstable and opressive the government of that country was, perhaps since it seems to have a repuation of stability and functionality among African countries. Necessary topics, perhaps, but a fairly boring read. There also is the feeling in the beginning (and in cover blurbs) that the entire story centers around the main character's friendship with her wilder neighbor, but it doesn't really seem that that is what the final 2/3 of the book is about, even if that character remains mildly involved.
