Dangerous love.

Hurray, a new author to devour! I loved this book. Ben Okri writes beautifully, telling the story of a tender-hearted artist maturing in a Nigerian ghetto compound. His writing plunges you into the horrors endured(or perpetrated) by his characters in a similar way to another of my favorite authors, Haruki Murakami. It’s an intense and magical portrayal.

I should warn you though, it’s potent medicine. Read it only if you have the fortitude to be shaken and stirred by the passion, brutality and confusion of life.

Dangerous Loveis a tremendous book. It was recommended to me on Goodreads, by the Murakami fan club.

Really looking forward to the rest of his books!
