~~Book Review~~

Hey folks! I decided to read a novel over break for my digital participation. The book is called Butterfly Burning by Yvonne Vera, a well-known author from Zimbabwe.

Here is my Amazon review:

http://www.amazon.com/review/RMLYAFP8HF69X/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=0374291861&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=283155&store=books

Apparently this novel was what brought Vera’s writing to “American readers for the first time.” The setting is in the {1940’s} African township of Bulawayo. The main character falls for a much older man, Fumbatha. I agree with another reviewer that there is minimal plot until the end, since most of the book is extremely detail oriented. By zooming in, Vera slows down time.
