it was amazing

This was an easy read. Flowing. Even without the usual conversation punctuation, you still understand what's happening. Great sense of humour especially if you're African and understand the beauty of direct translation. And even more striking is the fact that you understand she's talking about Zimbabwe and Mugabe without her mentioning the country's name even once in the book!
