    I just didn’t enjoy it. It jumped around too much at the start and I only really started wanting to read it about 9/10 of the way through, once the characters had found their feet. Saying that, I did really like Roxy and also Tunde. The political stuff and violence wasn’t my cup of tea.
  • I think everyone should read this book
