Review: The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives

The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives
The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives by Lola Shoneyin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

In this funny story of a polygamous household full of are secrets, power structures, unkind and kindness, generosity, love, and competition. Even though it was hard for me to keep some of the women apart in the beginning of the story, I really loved reading each of their back stories. They were unique and different and each strong and weak in their own way. The only character that was almost comical and maybe two-dimensional was Baba Segi himself. I could see the twist coming but I still enjoyed this unusual story from beginning to end.
