REVIEWS OF THE BOOK
“Very much following in the tradition of Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, this novel presents us with an Igbo society that is starting to witness the arrival of whites. Pacing is good. Structure and plotting are compelling and the reader really wants to know what happens to the characters.”…Pearson Education UK, publishers of Financial Times London, the Economist and Penguin Books.
“Chinwuba Iyizoba’s tale of West African village life is full of colour and incident, an eye-opener for a Western reader. The culture of the Ibo before the advent of Christianity and westernisation is shown through convincing characters with all their human frailties and vices as well as their natural wisdom and nobility. A great first book from a promising writer.” – Carolyn Moynihan, Deputy Editor of mercatornet.com
“After the Juju man reads like an old Nigerian fable written in a contemporary style. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and appreciated that despite being set in a simpler time their lives were still complex and complicated. The accessible language and ease of reading made me think this would be an ideal book for young readers. I wish you every success with it.”… Renowned journalist and CNN correspondent, Femi Oke
“I have not read anything like this since I read Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart many years ago.”…Justina Offiah, SAN
“After the Juju man is the best of all novels that we have ever read in our school. Its chosen diction is well polished and understandable.”… Joyce Okata, Department of Business Administration, IMT Enugu.
After the Juju-man is a classic — a story of life in West-Africa before the arrival of the Whites. It tells of the struggles of a man named Okafor whom at last died of injustice. . …Ekene Onuorah
