📚 QOTD: Would you help your sibling to get away with a murder? 🤔
🔪My Sister, the Serial Killer suppose to be a dark, satyrical and vivid book about – well – Sister who is a serial killer. After reading good reviews, we are now wondering what so many people found funny about it. We usually like dark humour/satire. So it has been on our radar for a while; however, it just did not hit the spot. We didn’t hate it, and it was interesting to read a crime story set in Nigeria.
🔪Korede, a plain young woman from a model family in Lagos, Nigeria, works as a nurse and has a crush on a kindly doctor colleague Tade. She has always protected her beautiful younger sister Ayoola, and this now includes helping clean up crime scenes after a series of boyfriends have been stabbed to death with their dead father’s knife. When Ayoola meets Tade, they are immediately attracted to one another, and Korede must now choose – save her sister, or saver her love.
🔪We didn’t find either sister remotely likeable. In fact, we ended up preferring the psychopathic Ayoola more, since at least she had a character. Korede, on the other hand, was an extremely annoying character to grasp. In the book, Tade asks her – What is wrong with you? And we have the same questions. Plain, overprotective, too loyal.
🔪We would like to read more about life in Lagos -the small bits we got was nice, but it was not enough. The only thing we learned – it has a lot of corrupt policemen. Could you recommend any good books about Nigeria?
🔪Overall – it’s ok but unmemorable.
