Pepper

Book: Pepper, by Sinmisola Ogunyinka

Genre: Romance

Where I got it: Free Kindle download

Briefly, it’s: a contemporary romance set in Calabar, Nigeria.

What I liked: The Nigerian authors that I’ve dipped into up to now have all been Big Names, dealing with Serious Topics.  This is a much lighter book (though the author has her own serious agenda – read the book to find out), and much more accessible.  I loved its unselfconscious Nigerian-ness.  It brings the reader into a very different cultural world: that of ardent Evangelical Nigerian Christians.  It was a great read, and I’m delighted I downloaded it.
