I want to say thanks for choosing a cheap book. I just picked this up for 99p. Pretty good so far.

I'm about 25% through MSTSK and I'm enjoying it. It's an easy read, and there are are a few great lines. I am enjoying the relationship between the sisters. In some ways the book reminds me of Queenpin, in the way the narrator grudgingly worships Ayoola. The dynamic feels a bit similar.

Justin | 95 comments Yeah, this is a taut little number. Stream-lined. High tension. I liked it., but I wished for more Lagos.

I'm about half way through. I'm still feeling the similarities with Queenpin - the awestruck, corrupted narrator and the worldly, glamorous other woman, the symbol of the world's corrupting influence. Just gonna say I really like the sparseness of the setting.

I've just finished this. I loved the short chapters. I loved the direct writing. I really enjoyed the relationship between the sisters and Tade. I liked the reflections on Femi - the moral conscience of the novel, and Muhatar - the guilt and fear. I really liked it. Almost five stars. For me it was a bit of a non-ending, that felt a little like 'They Shoot Horses...' but not quite as powerful.
