it was ok

This is a love story primarily laid in a poverty stricken area of Africa. Stories about agonizing, obsessive love make me uncomfortable -- (I keep wanting to ship the characters off to a psychiatrist) -- and I don't reading about squalid and painful surroundings, so this well-written novel had two strikes against it before I even got into it. Which wasn't fair to the author.

It was interesting because of the way the plot was designed. It read backwards, starting with a current situation and working its way back to how the situation started. And the end had a very interesting twist.

As I said above, this is a well-written novel and I can see why it got good reviews. It's just that I didn't much enjoy it.
