The Death of Vivek Oji ç Ntle and mysterious Raised by a distant father and an understanding but overprotective mother Vivek suffers disorienting blackouts moments of disconnection between self and surroundings As adolescence gives way to adulthood Vivek finds solace in friendships with the warm boisterous daughters of the Nigerwives foreign born women married to Nigerian men But Vivek’s closest bond is with Osita the worldly high spirited cousin whose teasing. 3 stars One of the strengths of this novel is the writing really beautiful prose and images “If this story was a stack of photographs the old kind rounded at the corners and kept in albums under the glass and lace doilies of center tables in parlors across the country ” I was struck by the recurrence of photographs both imagined as above and the actual ones reflected in Vivek’s funeral program “ The program was full of pictures of Vivek as a small boy a baby; nine of them looked like him now It was as if whoever had selected the pictures had decided to end the timeline that they wanted to pretend he was someone else” And at the end actual photographs so affecting so revealing While this story is about the death of a young man not a spoiler as it is obviously reflected in the title and with a one sentence first chapter It became than just his story and therein lies the weakness for me just too many relationships thrown into a novel that is not very long and at times these relationships felt like add ons For me that diluted in a way Vivek’s heartbreaking story I wanted of Vivek through his own self reflection “So If nobody sees you are you still there” I wanted from Vivek’s perspective not just how he was seen by others The author does a wonderful job of portraying all of their grief his cousin Osita bound to Vivek by so much than blood but none than Vivek’s mother Kavita This is a story about identity Nigeria in the 1990’s about the beauty of acceptance sadly coming too late Mixed feelings so it is right down the middle for me with 3 stars The for the writingWarning for those who may have an issue there are some graphic sex scenesI read this with Diane and Esil my monthly book buddies Read õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Æ Akwaeke Emezi

BOOK REVIEW 2820My video review is up on my YouTube channel READING VLOG 3220Stayed up till 430 AM to finish this beauty and have been crying for a good half an hour over it What a joy it is to know that people such as Emezi are in this world I know how it is often said that books transform you but I've never had that feeling as strongly as I had with this book Not only is their prose phenomenal but Emezi has an excellent command of the narrative adding just the right amount of prose secondary to the main storyline to paint an even vivid picture As the title states this book is about The Death of Vivek Oji but it is also perhaps even so about Vivek's life and the people around them Many of the main characters are coming of age and are feeling the restrictions that society thrusts upon all of us One of the many reasons as to why I cherish this book is that it shows people doors to possibilities they might not have even thought existed and if that's not a hell of an achievement I don't know what else is READ THIS BOOK WHEN IT COMES OUT1220The time has come My ARC came in the mail this week and I couldn't have had a better start to Black history Month with this book #Blessed271219Oh my gosh I can't believe I will be getting a copy in a couple of weeks BRUH once I have this in my hands I'm going to inhale that story in one go and141219I am simply OBSESSED with Akwaeke I need this in my life right now I can't wait15919I am here for it I'm currently reading Pet and it's such an amazing story can't wait to read of Emezi's work You can find me onYoutube | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Website
