Title & Author  : Odufa by Othuke Ominiabohs
Genre : Novel
“Odufa …my love .
When did everything go so wrong ? ”
This is a book review not an author review based on my connection  to the book in my own terms ..      Enjoy

Odufa+Book review+African literature

Source :

Odufa , a lover’s tale is all about two consenting adults Anthony and Odufa who fall in love irrespective of their shortcoming backgrounds.
I love the way the book portrays Anthony’s affection all the way ,  his tides of emotions  even though he had little faith in himself , Odufa started out all fragile,nice and loving but ended up as a David in a Goliath form with all her unexpected tirades . Odufa ,a lover’s tale showcases the typical tribal African mother that accepts her son’s girlfriend actions of “1000yards ” wife material but remembers that she does not pound yam the wife way when it is time for marriage.
i do not know who to make my favourite character , should it be reckless almost indecisive Anthony , Aunty Kome that wants high end in-laws , Crazy tirades now and next moment cuddle Odufa or cunning Dr Oscar that attaches dead sperm cells to hypertension cases conditions…
Every page is a favourite , the mind blowing pages is EPIC !!! 
I do hear of men waking up with lousy excuses of “It is me not you that’s the problem ” but not in Odufa . Odufa was much worse than a “Yoruba demon ” for she brought no foreseeing reason to back her drastic change in act.
Author Othuke, am still on amlodipine 5mg to regulate my heart beat rate ..
Odufa , a lover’s tale is a must read for everyone that has felt love even for a nano second . It is filled with intrigues and confusion thus it has my queen rating of  three of five of my own standard .
Thank you for reading and if you have read the book, please feel free to share your views and if you have not , purchase can be from any book store. I got mine from Patabah book store.
Selected poems from Odufa , a lover’s tale would be posted .. Watch the space..
