During my first tour, I reminded us about the commitment we all agreed to, which is, to read and review one another’s books. Last year, I read over one hundred of our members’ books. I am tempted to list them here, but I will not. My point is this: There are some of us who joined #RRBC to have their books read and reviewed, not to read and review others. In other words, they are the writers, and the others, the readers and reviewers. They whine and fuss when they are not in the front, back, and center of the review forefront…My advise for these members is, check your book reviews and return the favor to every member who have read and reviewed you. this is the right thing to do.
I made it a point of buying a book from each of the blogs I visited, especially, books by our new member authors, as I have read one, and sometimes, more books by our older member authors. That is my way of supporting them.
The world of the traditional Igbo society of Nigeria is a world in which the dead visit and interact easily with the living. It is also a world in which most of the time the living are at the mercy of the gods.
When 15-year-old Osondu goes missing, his mother searches for her son and faces the same fate. Now they are both missing. There is a thin line dividing the land of the living and the land of the dead, so thin that spirits from both lands coexist. And sometimes in the story, it is difficult to differentiate between the living and the dead. Both have bodies, with the living existing in their bodies, while the dead use borrowed bodies.
Legend of the Walking Dead: Igbo Mythologies is a fascinating journey into the mysteries of life and death of the Igbos. The book draws readers into the Igbo people’s ancient and traditional beliefs of life and death. You will be enthralled.
