it was amazing
bookshelves: african-journeys, novels-des-romans-en-français, historical-fiction
Read in June, 2005

One of may favourite novels, and a classic of Francophone African literature. A wonderful story, which allows us a glimpse into a time when things were the way they used to be, at least for a little while longer. Nostalgic, perhaps. The seemingly more traditional and innocent days of yore have been recorded here, as well the the author's transition into the modern world - a worthwhile journey.
