Wizard of the Crow – Some Notes

All right, it’s been quiet enough on the Africa Reading Challenge front.

I have been reading.  

Wizard of the Crow is a long, dense book, divided into several sections.  I’ve finished the first section and am now into the second.  Slow going?  Yes, but rewarding.  Ngugi has the habit of surprising one.  The satire is thick, but that doesn’t keep us from connecting with characters.  It isn’t till the second section that we get to meet the main characters — Ngugi spends the first section setting the scene and introducing those people I imagine could be considered villains/antagonists — but once we do, things settle very nicely.

But enough for now.  Just letting you know.  I haven’t not been reading.
