    PDF Ä BOOK The Hairdresser of Harare FREE The Hairdresser of HarareThis book wasn't at all what I expected The first half of the book gave a very good idea what everyday life is like in Harare and that was the best thing about it however the story was being milked with a twist that was obvious from the start It dragged on it seemed like forever I was waiting for something to happen Finally when the mystery is revealed to the main character she reacts badly and does something that is just mean and spiteful As a result the conseuences are tragic I'm not really sure what the author was trying to sa

    PDF Ä BOOK The Hairdresser of Harare FREE The Hairdresser of HarareThe Hairdresser of Harare had a Nollywood feel that was refreshing to see in literature form with the high drama the wahala the women gossiping etc It was easy reading; I started and didn't want to stop This book also reminded me of the Aya series in that it was was in a part of Africa Zimbabwe did not pretend that Africa didn't have problems yet showed everyday life ie not war disease and horrible death and focused on everyday issues I loved this and it drew me in And it's another book like Chimamanda's Americanah where I loathed the main character and that was cool It's in first person so it's an even interesting exercise in perspe

  • Imade (Bridge Four)

    PDF Ä BOOK The Hairdresser of Harare FREE The Hairdresser of HarareI don't know how to feel about this I was enjoying the story so much then it just fell flat for me The whole book was building towards the big twist of the story which after a while I could predict and then after the twist was revealed it was like the story had nowhere else to go or nothing to offer like the entire story was crafted around that twist instead of the other way around The writing style was okay but only just Did I like the narrator? Small And even less after what she does to Dumi when she discovers his secret It could've been better as a love story but that obviously wasn't what the author wanted The end was rushed and I don't even see the point of it The scenes and setting are colourful though All in all I'm annoyed that a book that was 5 star in my mind for 75% of the way managed to turn to this in the last uarter

    PDF Ä BOOK The Hairdresser of Harare FREE The Hairdresser of HarareSee of my book reviews on my blog Literary FlitsI had seen The Hairdresser Of Harare positively reviewed on other book blogs so jumped at the chance to purchase my own copy when the ebook was discounted recently on It's a fairly light hearted story although with violent episodes towards the end and I thought Huchu portrayed modern day Zimbabwe in a lively and entertaining way I liked his characters all of whom felt real although perhaps slightly larger than life and the potentially bitchy atmosphere of the hair salon was great fun Vimbai is a deceptively complex woman Initially I thought her rather vain an
