because you never forget that funny smell


Just the other day I was going through some previous posts i’m told most bloggers have gone away on holiday and came across this gem

When the charming author of this blog published it she may not have realised that she was opening a tiny window into her own reading preferences and by extension the preferences of the esteemed readers of her popular site too.

I think it is a fascinating revelation to see or hear what people whom one may consider as their peers are reading. It is also rewarding when they give you an insight into a particular book or writer.


I have just started reading Paradise by Abdulrazak Gurnah. With every turn of the page I want to curse the author and rip up the book into 1000 pieces. I laugh out loud, feel grossly offended, feel deep sadness and depression and then feel uplifted with each turn of the page.

Please read this book and tell me how you feel.

  1. Is it easily available in Nairobi?

  2. I’ll check about that and let you know, sir. It is an interesting read….

  3. Thanks for sharing this – I’ve gone over to Shiko’s and there’s a lot that has been shared re reading. @Otieno, if you happen to come across a copy. let me know. I’ll let you know if I do.

  4. Hi @ Project44 – it is quite a read. Please let me know what you think when you’re done. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Oh! Gracias Gracias for the mention. *spreads charm*

    The books recommended on the comments at mine have been such a rich reading experience though I’ve still not read all of them. Paradise (And anything Arab sounding) is certainly joining my next shopping trip which should be immediately. I hope they have it in stock at Bookfirst.

  6. It does come with Smirnoff right? Right?

  7. Lol@Shiko – not sure about the Vodka – I have not even finished reading this book – but it is such an experience. The author has a real story to tell. I’m left mouth-wide open at some of the outrageous…well I like it despite the title of the post.

  8. What caught my eye first was the Smirnoff Triple Distilled. I’m busy waiting for the movie version of the book to be released! 😛

  9. Lol@ghafla the camera never lies. I would also like to see this on the big screen. Thanks for dropping by

  10. Read first before big screen. The story is normally clearer. Off to Amazon.

  11. Thanks @maua the story is just amazing – I wonder if this can actually see the light of day as a movie – you be the judge…..

  12. I wouldn’t mind reading it if you are willing to lend me your copy

  13. Will definitely look out for this book
