It is NOT "The Memory of Love"
on 14 June 2012
This is not really a review of the book as such, but a word of caution for those who may think this is similar to Aminatta Forna's other work. If you like autobiographies - this is an excellent book from that perspective and you will enjoy it. I am not a fan of autobiographies (rather the opposite) and ordered this book kind of on impulse without looking at the synopsis, late at night,having just finished The Memory of Love also by Aminatta Forna - because I loved it so much and was craving for something similar!!!! It was my mistake really and as a result I struggled with The Devil That Danced on the Water and left it unread...
