Onuzo did a brilliant job taking the reader to Lagos. She journeys through a culture far removed from my own, yet captivates me. The characters reflect so much in humanity, the good and the bad. I came into this book with no expectations and hope you do the same. Although Onuza whirls her story on corruption and incompetence of the government, it is merely a backdrop to five unlikely friends trying to start new in Lagos.

I'm not sure what the deal was with this one for me. I was given this book in audio format for Early Reviewers, and I usually LOVE audio formats of books, nonfiction or fiction, doesn't matter. But there was something about this book that I just couldn't get into and I really struggled to finish it. I think the narrator did a really good job, so I don't think that was the issue necessarily. I think some of it was that in listening to CDs, I couldn't speed up the audio and was stuck with the slower pace. I think the other aspect of the book was that it felt like there just wasn't a lot going on - there wasn't one singular moment that gripped me and had me hooked. I do wonder if I had had this book in physical paper if that would change my opinion on it. I didn't dislike it, but I definitely didn't love it either.
