The challenges and discover this broken family find makes a wonderful story of adventure, discovery, self-adjustment and self-learning. The dynamics of the family and the community they have to survive in provide a realistic and special insight into an improverish African community that is very well described in this book. The unique African descriptions of a situation or feeling is really the most special components of this book. The oil and politics situation in Nigeria, whilst is by no means the focus of this book, but the way it has been entwinged is significant of the way the communities lives continue but how the oil and politics continue to interrupt and disrupt their way of living and life as they know it! A lot of laughing, a few tears in reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and most definately recommend this.
