Some books need to be read aloud so that the texture comes across in sound Chukwudi Iwuji did an excellent job of performing this book at times changing his intonations to suit the mood switching to Igbo or Yoruba accents paying attention to words and dialect and meaning in sound This was a joy to listen to on several three hour car journeys The past and present are beautifully intertwined in this story of brothers Told from the retrospect of one brother who has just spent a few years as a minor in prison this is a story of boys who come of age in an economically disadvantaged town in Nigeria Their parents are determined to raise their four oldest sons to be professors lawyers or doctors when a strange tragedy befalls their family At the center of this tragedy is a mentally unstable man whose mental health is the result of traumatic brain injury from a car accident a man who has no help from his community and one who commits unspeakable crimes Wrapped into this terrifying cocoon are the hopes and dreams of boys the darkness of the spirit world the tears from a mother s heart and a father s lost ambition This story of 1990s Nigeria which parallels the political climate of the time is spellbinding and searing visceral and unforgettable

Oh yeah definitely a must read This was good good Igbo village storytelling If anyone s work should be compared to Chinua Achebe it s this one But it s also got its own uniue voice There were times when it meandered a bit too much for my taste sometimes there were details that felt included in order to pull the voice away from the point of view of a ten year old these felt heavy handed and often out of place but these moments didn t keep me from continuing It s not a perfect novel there is no such thing as a perfect novel but it s a great first novel and it s the type of story that I love Plus I love a good tragedy Applause
