    PDF Waiting for an Angel PDF ☆ Waiting for PDF or º tyrakel.de waiting mobile, angel ebok, Waiting for pdf, Waiting for an Angel EpubIn my humble opinion Waiting For An Angel is as close to genius as a writer can get; at least that's the way I view any novel which can hold me spellbound for twenty four hours without a single thought about life sustaining necessities As one who lived in Nigeria at the time the novel was set it stirred bittersweet memories of the life under military dictatorships The simple writing belies the sophisticated well observed presentation of the lives of ordinary folks who were by and large the victims of those aberrant days of Nigeria's post colonial history

    PDF Waiting for an Angel PDF ☆ Waiting for PDF or º tyrakel.de waiting mobile, angel ebok, Waiting for pdf, Waiting for an Angel EpubA very disappointing read The book fails to capture the brutality of Sani Abacha's dictatorship as promised What it does is capture the everyday insanity and contradictions of life in Nigeria whole families dying on the inter city highways; young people going insane; universities closing down due to student protests or lecturers strikes; young women marrying older men for survival and to maintain their extended family; the sordid and brutal life of a Nigerian prison This is the Nigeria of the last 30 40 years The novel is dry and passionless told in a matter of fact way that fails to capture any sense of the insanity unless of course you are familiar with that insanity
