Review published on November 25, 2017.
Set in Nigeria, in the 1960s, Bush Meat is a set of stories about one family, their life in Nigeria and then back home in England.
Though only a slim volume, it did take me a while to get into this book, but once I got through the first couple of chapters, I really enjoyed it.
It has dark humour, as well as light, and it did make me smile, and also take deep breaths in parts. The characters are wonderful; some are a little complex, while others are very open, and you can identify with at least one or two characters. For me, it was something different. Would I read anything else by Mandy Sutter? YES! I love the way she can make her characters feel as if you have known them all your life!
Angie Rhodes 5/5
