Hurray! Our book of the month has been featured on the prestigious BellaNaija Review page. The reviewer was excited about Lawrence Amaeshi’s Sweet Crude Odyssey for so many reasons. Not only did she find it thoroughly researched, she found the tale compelling. Below is an excerpt of the review:
“I should give the author credit for doing a lot of research while writing this book. From precise information about distillation processes to expertly depicting mannerisms prevalent amongst people of different nationalities and social strata, Amaeshi went the whole nine yards. I learned a lot while reading Sweet Crude Odyssey. The best thing about this book is that is it explores the highly ignored Niger Delta crude crisis without sermonizing right or wrong. It is an excellent story because it shows instead of telling.”

Most of us have enjoyed Lawrence Amaeshi’s intriguing take on the oil war. Some have only read an excerpt of the novel and all agree that the author is worth engaging in a tweet meet and or an actual online book tour.
