The characters’ lack of personality and flat dialogue doesn’t help; for example, Odin’s first thought, upon seeing his future wife, is that “She possesses all the physical features needed in a woman.” Unfortunately, this book possesses few of the features needed in a story. A well-meaning but tedious exercise.

Synopsis

The book is about a man named Odin, who was an orphan and the only surviving child of his parents. Unlike his peers, he neither received parental care nor an education. He grew up with no proper livelihood, but he was not bothered so long as he had food to eat for the day. He has only one friend, named Ndu. One day, the water leaking from his tattered roof onto his food made him despair. It was then that he started to think about his life for the first time in twenty-nine years. He asked his only friend, Ndu, to help him change his life. Ndu was very happy about Odin's sudden change and promised to assist him in every aspect. One change led to another, taking Odin beyond his wildest expectations.
