Book Review - The Hangman's Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko
I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. Although, this isn't one of my typical reads, I decided to give it a shot as I found the premise quite interesting.
This book is dark. It describes the situation of a man pushed to his limits, willing to do anything and everything to ensure the survival of his family.
The book intrigued me because it showed how desperation could push a morally sound man like Abel to make the decisions he did. It accurately portrays the condition in Africa and how people struggle to survive despite all the hardships. This book really makes you think about all that you have and how horrible conditions are. It paints a picture of human greed and wickedness.
In conclusion, this book is amazing and everybody should get a chance to read this book. It provides a lot of food for thought and personally, I think this book is one of my favorites.
The author has a very beautiful way of writing and I think everyone should read this if not only to admire the eloquent way the entire thing is written.
Luckily for you guys the e-book is FREE. Yes FREEE!!!! On Amazon until the 18th of August and for all other devices the 19th of August at: http://gum.co/FullDiscout/Free399. You should NOT miss this opportunity to get this book so HURRY WHILE IT LASTS!
