I believe that i have retold this story to everyone willing to listen because it is that good… This book centers on the fact that pride sometimes can make one to be blind to the happenings around them. This book was originally published in 2010 and i read it in 2016 (its still raving)
Baba Segi was proud… oh was he proud… Proud to have fathered so many children… proud to have so many wives…became prouder after marrying an educated woman…the list goes on and on….
I am literally pinching myself so i wont spill the whole story , this book is full of surprises…so many surprises…deception… everything… There was hatred towards the educated wife…and she ended up bringing out the skeletons all the other wives had in their closets. (i am bursting out of my seams trying not to spill everything).
It is a very interesting read.. trust me you wont regret reading it. A play was made from this book (that is how good it it). Lola Shoneyin (the author) did an awesome job with this book.
This book is on Okada books app and also goodreads as well as other reading apps.. the book can also be gotten from bookshops. I can not continue because i am sure ill spill too much. If you have read this book ,please do comment and let me know what you loved most about it.
