Book Review: White is for Witching by Oyeyemi, helen.

White is for WitchingWhite is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had a hard time starting this book. I had to push it aside a couple of times because I didn’t quite understand the POV. But, Through sheer will and more than anything else, “curiousity” i got hooked and suprisingly ended up enjoying this book!

Oyeyemi writes with a witty and unhurried style that is nothing short of magic mixed with foreboding. Plus, I particularly loved the tiny little ways she dipped into the “yoruba” tribe in Nigeria, it was brilliant!

“White is for Witching” evoked a lot of unclear feelings. It was in the way she depicted the main characters in an almost quiet horror and intensity and i felt like i had to use up all my energy just to try and understand what the book even meant.
