  1. Thanks for the review, Callum. I don’t think I could bear to read this book. I’ve read too many books recently by Nigerian authors – so upsetting and makes me really angry.

  2. Oh, I like the sound of this one, even if it would probably make me depressed. Of course we think that women shouldn’t accept their place and lack of status in society, but books like this show the terrible consequences of not complying.

  3. Excellent review! This sounds like a heavy, but really powerful read. So wild that it was written forty years ago, yet seems like it could be written about contemporary times.

  4. Great review! This sounds like a devastating but important read, and perhaps all the more powerful for how resonant it still seems closer to modern day despite being written several decades ago! I think I’ll add this one to my TBR, it sounds like a book that shouldn’t be missed.
