This book was written in a style I consider to be typical African. The way the dialogs unfold, the language, mentioning of gods or superstitions reminded me of my own childhood. The story was told at a pace just fast enough to keep me engaged until the very end. Although the names of the characters where not typical, I somehow found it easy to quickly grasp who was who. That's probably because there were not that many characters.

There were surprising turn of events that I didn't see coming, which made me want to find out as quickly as possible how the story would end. It was one of the quickest reads I have had over the last few years. All in all, I consider this a good book with my favourite kind of ending.
