Publisher: Those lovely people over at Cutting Edge Press
I'm going to start by telling you that I really needed this book. It was the right book at the right time. THANK YOU CEP!
Anyway on with the review....
Cynthia is a pensioner with balls and she is finally living the life she always should have. Cynthia is a babe and I imagine her to be like Nora from Brothers and Sisters in every single way! She is awesome. Trace is also an excellent character and is just a superb caricature. The relationship between these two is beautiful in a way, as well as being VERY funny.
The humour in the novel is just right for me and the style of writing is superb. If you don't love it from page one I will be VERY shocked indeed!
This really is a modern day and raunchy comedy of errors. However, it also shows you some of the darker sides of Nigeria and shows the plight that many suffer in the country. But, I do believe that the darker and sad undertones give the novel a lot more depth and broaden its appeal maybe!
An excellent book once again from CEP!
P.S. I'm buggering off for a week on a work trip so may be quiet for a while. Try not to miss me!
