At times thought-provoking, and written in beautiful language... but I struggled to finish due to the lengthy chapters. Felt like 6 separate stories, loosely threaded together, all of which had a beginning and a middle, but no end.

I'm not sure if it was the lackluster narration, are the story itself. But this one took me about three weeks to get through. All the others I've read have taken me about 3 days.

the author's writing is vivid and beautiful, but is exquisitely animated bye the narration of Zainab Jah.

the book was wonderful! The narrator brought the book to life so vividly, minus her regrettable attempts at an American accent.

even though the book is long, by the time it ended, I wanted it to continue.
