    While I enjoyed the story, I was dissatisfied with the ending as it left too many unanswered questions I hate books like that Closure is essential.

    3.5 stars This book for my ATW reading challenge Lesotho reminded me of One Hundred Years of Solitude because of the constant change of Radisene s fortunes Dikosha was certainly interesting, but I wasfascinated by Tampololo I also liked the constant commentary by the villagers.

    I loved this book but don t think that everyone would Zakes Mda s books are beautifully written but kind of quirky with their depictions of myth folklore and legend in southern African village life I adored it

    Good, not great A somewhat cryptic story about life in Lesotho Too much about the twin brother trying to build a fortune through insurance scams Not enough about the muchfascinating sister who provides the title A better place to start with Mda The Madonna of Excelsior.


  6. says:

    Fascinating mountaneous fantasy world, fascinating fantasy characters, story a bit going nowhere but with parallels to a credible reality that makes it worth reading


  7. says:

    She Plays with Darkness desperately tries to be Magical Realism, but fails.


  8. says:

    Fantasy and imagination running riot in Lesotho Interesting and atmospheric but a little tedious and lacking in energy, I think Is this magic realism Not sure I need to be anchored in reality.
