It of a slog frankly I would listen to Mugezi the narrator of the Abyssinian Chronicles over and over like the sound in my head when I m at eace and in turmoilThe story begins in Uganda and ends in Amsterdam but it is not about the geographical locations it is about the events and experiences that shape Mugezi s life The choices he makes the women in his life and how religion corruption shape Mugezi life The choices he makes the women in his life and how religion war corruption his uest for both identity and belongingThe book is not one to be read at a sitting and it takes time to read through the experiences and adventures he has a child and also while at the seminary I was taken by the women in this book who stand firm and refuse to be judged by the men regarding their actions like Aunt Lwandeka There is also Serenity s wife Padlock who sticks to her reign of fear on her children through discipline and unishment and runs her household as she The Exchange pleases There were times when I was tempted to strike her off the story for being so ruthless but I could not Others like her aunt Nakibuka is yielding and takes her time to charm Padlock s husband Serenity and it is these depictions of such conviction in the women that I came to admire I could definitely learn a thing or two about writing such charactersI would travel with Mugezi again on his journey I would like to start off by saying that my feelings about this book are rather mixedIt is the story of Mugezi born in Uganda and growing up in and around Kampala during its most turbulent times We accompany Mugezi through war disease and dictatorship On the whole it s an interesting topic but unfortunately I found that the characterization and the style took away from the story rather than add to itIt s a 500age book that could easily have said the same in half the time Simply Drip Drop Teardrop put the book is overwritten It feels as if the author discovered writing got to work and never reviewed or reworked a single sentence Theages burst with similes obscure metaphors and rophetic dreams Sometimes I felt as if Isegawa was buildi.

NEW ORDINARY PEOPLE CAN T HELPOrdinary eople can t help get caught up in itIf I focus on the book itself although it offers an interesting and detailed ersonal history of Uganda during its most turbulent years I was never totally drawn in I think my main issue was with the narrator Mugezi None of the events seem to affect him very much and so as a reader it was also difficult to feel too invested despite the subject matter This book by a Ugandan author needed a good editor It s almost two or three different books one outstanding the other not Mugezi grew up as a child unwanted by his mother and ignored by his father who leave him with his grandfather and aunt when they move to Kampala We follow him through his childhood adolescence and adulthood as we follow the civil unrest and wars in Uganda And the destruction of the AIDS epidemic Not much joy in this largely well written novel This was billed as the Great Ugandan Novel and reviewers kept comparing Isegawa to Rushdie and Maruez Not so my friends There are enough technical issues with the writing that it took me fifty ages in to really figure out who was who and another hundred to give a shit at all I mean it may still be the Great Ugandan Novel and it certainly shares the national family epic genre with Rushdie and Maruez but so far it s of a mildly scatological Bildungsroman Still interesting but not what I had hoped for at all ABYSSINIAN CHRONICLES Moses Isegawa Livres Furet du Nord Plongez vous dans le livre ABYSSINIAN CHRONICLES de Moses Isegawa au format Ajoutez le votre liste de souhaits ou abonnez vous l'auteur Moses Isegawa Furet du Nord Vintage International A Novel Abyssinian Vintage International A Novel Abyssinian Chronicles Moses Isegawa Vintage Des milliers de livres avec la livraison chez vous en jour ou en magasin avec % de rduction Abyssinian Chronicles The New York Times Abyssinian Chronicles By MOSES ISEGAWA Knopf Read the Review Village Days Three final images flashed across Serenity's mind as he disappeared into the jaws of the colossal crocodile a rotting buffalo with rivers of maggots and armies of flies emanating from its cavities; the aunt of his missing wife who was also his longtime lover; and the mysterious woman who had cured his Abyssinian chronicles | African Union Commission Abyssinian chronicles Author Isegawa Moses Place New York Publisher Vintagre Books Date ublished Phys descriptions IX Record type BookMonograph Subject FICTION UGANDA ISBN Call No ISE Abstract Like Salman Rushdie's Midn.
