2.0 out of 5 stars Dreary dark tale..., Oct. 26 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Purple Hibiscus (Hardcover)
I had every intention of wanting to love this book but will alone wouldn't suffice. It is dreary, seemingly long for it's relative size. Until the very end Kambali and her mother come across as weak and needy women enduring endless beatings while continuing to have a twisted reverence for their husband/father. The story has a depressing flatline rhythm. One that would be better to get from the library or wait for paperback.
