Book review: Dazzle me forever

broken-wine-glass-yuri-lev
I have read this book with some intensity, and I am utterly dazzled by the creative fecundity, elegant style and masterly skills of the author of this book. Dr Victoria Ozidu writes with clinical precision and descriptive vividity.
The plot of the narrative is written around three main motifs: love, crime and justice. Of course, we can see the intruding themes of politics, art and religion as well.
The story starts out quite romantically with the chance encounter of Foluke Peters, the heroine of the book and the quickly fatalized Tade Majekodunmi, the quickly fatalized pair hero. Between the duo, what starts out as romantic fantasies soon dovetails into marital bliss; only for a reversal of fortune to set in with the gruesome, but later discovered to be premeditated murder of Tade. With the dazzling master interred, the authour through creative devious creative ingenuity is able to sustain our interest through serpentine but highly interesting journeys.
The story begins to glide into a thriller as the quest to unmask the killers of Tade begins. Intermittenly, the author finds a space for Chioma and Linda to find love, while the heroine, Bassey Ekpeyong and Chioma are shown the path to Christ.
Eventually, the story changes gear with the death of Tade per se, but with the abduction and harrasment of his queen. We are led in an excursion into the chambers of the underworld and their life of secrecy. We travel through intricate layers and cells of minions to get to the lords of the manor-who are never seen. For example, we do not get to see the mythical general till the end of the narrative.
The author must be commended for an almost flawless felicity of language. Her use of description and dramatic dialogue makes the book unputdownable. This prose is recommended to as many lovers of literature for pleasure and literary criticism.

In his book, Eclipse of destiny,   Adetola Adeyemi  reveals how young people can get caught in the web of deciet that makes up our world today.

Here’s a sneak preview of what the book is about:

Jude, Femi and Kunle had been friends since university days. They were driven with  passion for sexual exploits. Ronke was a dedicated for many years with leadership experiences, yet under pressure from her mother to get married to a rich man at all cost.

Bunmi was a young beautiful lady with a strict disciplinarian and learned father. Her University admission was an opportunity to be ”free” to enjoy sex to the maximum. she soon plunged into the world of modern prostitution.

Their paths crossed and there was intrigue, confusion…

I personally enjoyed the reality portrayed in the book and the way the pages kept turning in my hands.   This book will get you to realize how one choice or a series of choices can affect one’s destiny. It is a powerful book laced with lessons and revelations particularly relevant to the dangerous world we live in today.

Books that talk: A life God rewards

Books that talk: A Life God rewards

Mountain Lake

Bruce Wilkinson wrote this little book about what your reward is in eternity for what you do for Him today. There are two major keys he says. One is belief. The other is behavior.

He claims that the future holds great promise for fulfillment and reward if we make certain choices.

This quaint book serves to remind us that eternity is not too far way. Wars and rumors of wars are rampant; things that were only figments of the imagination in the past have become common place today. We need to realize that there is something more to life than having comforts. It teaches that what we do today does matter… for our future!

Personally, the book made me look forward to a ‘well done.’

An excerpt from the book reads:

‘I remember when Darlene Marie and I first chose to believe in God’s eternal reward and live for that Day. It dramatically changed our actions and priorities. It reordered how our family handled our money, our time and our abilities. It added new, obvious urgency to how we tended unfinished business. We became more grateful, more overwhelmed by the kindness of God.

And we began to live every day for the Rewarder’s ‘well done.’

This is what this book will do to you, make you wish for the eternal reward. Check for it in a bookstore today.
