This was a great read with a few unexpected twists which kept me turning the pages late at night. My only gripe was that the drip feeding of the political climate seemed forced and didn't add anything to the story. In fact, there was a particular scene which I'm convinced was introduced for shock value and yet it failed to hit the mark. I grew up in Nigeria in the 80s and 90s so recognised pretty much everything decribed and yet it all felt like an add on. Other than that, I loved the way the real story of Yejide and Akin unfolded and the raw honesty of the characters' emotions. Highly recommended.
