Book Review - Egg-Larva-Pupa-Woman

SSD had a give away last year and i won this book. It arrived in my house in time for christmas, but i didn't get to read it until yesterday. I had started reading it in January right after my school wahala but i was too distraught to focus and the small font put me off. This past Saturday on my way to work, i noticed it sitting on the dresser and i decided to grab it in case i got a chance at work.

Wow! Best book i have read in a while. Absolute page turner. I couldn't put the book down. It's starts out in Nigeria pre-independence. It's a story about Nkiru and all the tradegies she faces in her young life and goes up to about 40years later. It's filled with unexpected twists and turns. I've read so many books, i can usually "predict" or at least have a sense where the story is going, but a few things caught me off guard in this book and i really liked that.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good Nigerian book to sink their teeth into. The only thing i didn't like about the book was the small font. Thank God for 20/20 vision, anything less and it would have been a problem.

My weight loss program is shot! I have managed to eat myself back to 156lbs from 152lb :( I ate to my hearts content today cos from tomorrow i'm going to be responsible. I can't go back to school fat. I need to be at most 148lbs by August and it's doable if i just stop eating irresponsibly. More oatmeal and less cheesecake. Yes, I can!!!


  1. Yes we can. I'm supposed to be working on mine too. The weight is going, but OH so slowly! Sigh...

  2. Hey Sting, thanks so much for reviewing my debut novel, Egg-Larva-Pupa-Woman! It is highly appreciated. I'm glad to say that the 'larger font' edition is now on sale on Amazon, WHSmith and other good book stores. God bless, Ogo xxx

  3. I sure would look for it and read.. Happy new month

  4. Really? how can i get it in 9ja?..weight loss problem?...i had given up years ago!...hehehehe
