Hi. I was just wondering if you knew of any African novels you would particularly recommend I read. I've read a few already - a couple of Chinua Achebe's, some Wole Soyinka (well, his plays anyway), Season of Migration to the North, Nervous Conditions and right now I'm reading Thomas Mofolo's Chaka - but that's about it. The problem is here (in Canada) the only African writer you ever really hear of is Achebe and occasionally Soyinka. If you know some other writers I should be sure not to neglect though, I'd love to know.
Hello dear friend
I am sorry it took me so long to answer you. My younger sister, Amy, who lives with me had a stroke due to migranes. Her heart is in good shape. So she is home now and somewhat better. I will try to read the book as soon as possible. Thank you for the recommendations. You are very kind.
Hey Adetoun..I used to read Danielle Steele all the time but she had so many books out at the same time that I could not keep up. Sorry to say its been years since I've read one of her books. I mostly read crime dramas and mystery books..lot of James Patterson and I love Tananarive Due--she is great.
Adetoun O--yes I've read the Da Vinci Code and yes it's all that it's hyped up to be. Just don't watch the movie--they did not do a good job, but yes READ IT!!! Also if you can read the one titled "ANGELS & DEMONS", by the same author BEFORE you read the Code...they are related and Angels came out first--now the Da Vinci Code can stand on its on but you will understand it better (I think) if you read Angel & Demons first. Let me know how you like it when you do read it.
