7 out of 10

Four siblings and a prophecy that will change their lives forever...

I really enjoyed this book that allowed me to get a glimpse of Nigeria. I liked how some historical events were woven into the story while it was still very much the personal story of Benjamin and his brothers.

Picked this up at the Bookcrossing Convention in Bordeaux - heard about it when it made the Booker list.

7 out of 10

A good read, and deserving its place on the Booker list.
The first half sometimes felt like watching a train crash in slow motion. What superstition does to people... And the aftermath.
I also enjoyed reading about the background of the political situation in Nigeria in the 90s.
