A multitude of themes are explored, among them fertility and faithfulness, class and the prejudices within the African diaspora and inter-race discrimination; yet the storytelling is so skilful that there is never a hint of reading about IMPORTANT ISSUES.
Imperfect Arrangements is the story of my life and my friends and it is the story of you and your friends as well.
Though rooted in and enriched by the British-Ghanaian experience, yet it transcends this, resulting in a masterful exposition of the universal joys and challenges of being a woman at this time.
I finished this book in just a few days and read the last few pages in a dark room and my mobile torch for light because I couldn't put it down.
I loved the way that the characters were described so vividly, and their story and narrative developed so much that I truly felt as though I knew them. Not just as one dimensional characters in a book but as real people who I could have and probably have encountered in everyday life.
I loved how well it described the ups and downs of the returnee experience - the frustrations no one warns you about and the things you eventually adapt to and learn to work with. The feeling of home when you return to your country of origin.
Most of all I loved how it looked beneath the veneer of marriage and how the perfect marriage could be falling apart indoors and the "less than perfect couple" actually have something beautiful that they often take for granted because it's so normal to them.
Made me miss being in Africa and want to return to Ghana.
Would 100% recommend.
Always wanted to visit but after reading this more so .
Loved the ladies and seeing how their lives pan out. Mother in law and some family members are to way out of line.
Stayed up one night until 2 am to finish. Love the ending.
Really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommended it.
