We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo


DNF @ 17%

The start of this book was really interesting but the writing style just didn't work for me. The lack of dialogue tags was really distracting and I didn't feel like the book was straightforward enough that I could easily follow along without them. The portrayal of "post"-colonialist Zimbabwe and its corruption and lingering cultural biases had a lot of potential, and I love a good coming of age story, but I was not a fan of the prose.

2 out of 5 stars
