It fills my heart with pride and joy when I read reviews of my debut novel, Eleven Miles, which tell of the real reflection of life and society in remote African villages. This is exactly what I was trying to achieve in my writing of Boitumelo’s story. To have endorsements from people who know that society is tremendous.
The review that appeared on Amazon today says, “. . . this book sums up the attitude of the people of this wonderful continent perfectly.” It was written by a British reader who has travelled extensively across the African continent.
Another recent review on Amazon, which was written by a young African reader who obviously has personal experience of that life, tells us, “This book narrates the stories of hundreds, or thousands, or even millions of Africans kids. Almost any African child can relate to this compelling piece of brilliance.”
Wouldn’t any author be extremely happy with such feedback? I feel wonderful!
