This review is from: The White Woman on the Green Bicycle (Paperback)
Excellent book I am from Trinidad and happen to live in the general area in which the story is set. The story has such a ring of truth to it and at times I could not put it down. The perspective is an interesting one as growing up I only know the black power side of the story so it was very interesting to get a glimpse into what the expats were experiencing at the time. I also enjoyed trying to figure out the characters as I am convinced that I know a few of them. I know that it is fiction but like I said it has such a ring of truth to it. I passed the book onto my mother and she enjoyed it as she could identify more closely with the main character and the events.

VERY helpful review. Although I know it is fiction itīs nice knowing that you say there is a lot of truth behind this novel. I too have read a novel (Half of a Yellow sun) and was also convinced that I knew quite a few of characters as I had been told that story by my father several times during the course of my childhood.
