Read from May 25 to 31, 2012
this was quite an enjoyable read. i believe the author meant to write an unbaised fictional account of a post colonial african country and succeeds. most of the time. still, the occassional empirialist thought was not enough to keep me from liking this book. its is a slow read but doesn't really lag. the author uses language wonderfully and is quite a colorful character himself. i look forward to reading some of his other works.
