To say the ending was onekind is an under statement.it really pissed me off and made me hate the book.wat was her hurry? well i loved unbridled coz now nigerians have started exploring on the darker side of human nature.

contempary Nigerian writers

I'm splurging big on Amazon this month, about to order the entire Buchi Emecheta collection.

I am looking for current works from nigerian authors, home and abroad.

Please can you guys give me some ideas on whats out there currently ie writers or book titles and if they're on Amazon I will add them to my list.

I may buy some pacesetters too for my niece, I think they had some used copies when I checked a year ago.

Thanks in advance!grinning:
How about Blessing Otobo... She is from Rivers State. She wrote "The Moth Kingdom" check it out. You will love it.
