really liked it

Ever come across a book that you read and thoroughly enjoyed, and would recommend to anyone and everyone whether or not they were interested? Well, this is one of them. The best writing I've come across from a Nigerian/African author in a long time- no surprise there since I don't read much from the continent because of my own in-grained suspicions of an archaic writing style and thematic pre-occupations that have failed largely to evolve with changing times and keep pace with socio-cultural changes on the continent.
The writing style and approach are nothing but breaths of fresh air. You should read this book, whoever you are.
