I picked up Sefi Atta’s book with great anticipation, and the beginning parts did not disappoint. The story, however, suffered a decline as it started becoming boring at some point. The book alternated between being interesting and not-so-interesting.
I find the title catchy, which is a good thing.
All over the book, she kept referring to ‘tupperware’, rather unnecessarily I think.
The print was large and editing was poor. Errors occurred more than an insignificant number of times (except it’s been re-edited, considering the fact that the cover picture shown here is different from my own copy).
The idea occurred to me that she wanted the book to be lengthy as there are a number of details/ pages a reader could have done without.
You just may really like the book, however.
