Have you ever read a book that you ended up getting so lost you forgot it was a book? From the Beginning of “Escape from Bamako” to the end I was enraptured by the fast paced tale unfolding before me. The Author in his maiden debut has done a fantastic Job in exploring a genre most African authors skim past. He tells events in both a serious and humorous way that captures the readers attention.
My favorite character of course is the star of the Story Sam whom at the beginning I thought would be a lackadaisical character not willing to rise to the challenge but he did.
Who would have thought that an innocent state dinner would turn into a bloody coup threatening international relations and the safety of top government officials. Cue in radio silence and the disabling of communication mediums in and out of Mali and as more of the plot enfolds we come to see that this coup is not just about a hostile takeover its also a story of vengeance that unleashes a chain reaction of betrayal, suspense, loss, victory and all the emotions that make for a great read.
