    Hardcover · Fata Morgana PDF ´ fata pdf, morgana kindle, Fata Morgana PDF45 Stars On Black Sisters Street by Chika Unigwe is a difficult novel to read The story centers around four women who are sex workers in Belgium In an all too familiar story the women leave their native Africa for a better life only to end up in Belgium working in the red light district They will never be able to pay back their trafficker and must endure a life of violence loneliness and rape One of the women Sisi is murdered While the book is a work of fiction one can only think of the women and children world over and in our own backyards who a

    Hardcover · Fata Morgana PDF ´ fata pdf, morgana kindle, Fata Morgana PDFI heard second hand a story about a man whose son had died some years before Asked how he found the energy for his community work after such a heartbreaking loss he said Life is not about waiting for the storm to end but learning to dance in the rain In the self stories shared by four women in this book their dreams their vulnerability their sufferings all invoke sympathy but it's the way they somehow pick themselves up and carry on the way they just about sustain each other messily and with a 25% critical failure rate by hearing and affirming and sharing laughter and hope that makes the book bearable to read even helpful like those words of courage in terrible griefThe fragmentary narrative structure works beautifully collective memory gradually emerging enabling the reader to feel the women's relief from the loneliness o

    Hardcover · Fata Morgana PDF ´ fata pdf, morgana kindle, Fata Morgana PDFThis was not an enjoyable read As a matter of fact it was not written to please but to disturb Reading about prostitution and the stories behind different prostitutes started ever since I discovered Eleven Minutes by Paulo CoelhoHowever this book is different The message behind this story is differentThis time I was left with a lot of unanswered questions and I was filled with both confusion and agonyIs there really an escape for prostitution or are they bound to do this job their whole life ? The ending left me absolutely furious because I feel that there is neither a proper justification for its reasons nor for its motives I'm trying so hard not to spoil It was as if Chika deliberatley left her readers on a cliffhanger Why would Sisi's life end up like that ? Didn't she deserve to live the l

    Hardcover · Fata Morgana PDF ´ fata pdf, morgana kindle, Fata Morgana PDFReading this book made me reflect on a lot of things about Nigeria the diversity the peoples the hardships and the choices and sufferings of said peoples The story is about the lives of four different African women forced to trade their bodies for a better life far away from their own country in Belgium The sudden death of one of the women finds the other women in shock and in the spur of the moment they find themselves exchanging previously untold secrets and chilling grim tales of the experiences that culminated in them becoming flesh traders in a foreign land Each of the women has experiences that are both unique in

    Hardcover · Fata Morgana PDF ´ fata pdf, morgana kindle, Fata Morgana PDF“That first experience of sex was so painful in its ordinariness that she had spent days wanting to cry” On Black Sisters Street by Chika Unigwe is a novel about four African sex workers who by distinct and tragic means travel from their home countries to work in the red light district of Antwerp Belgium The story begins with Sisi perhaps the most complicated character who turns to prostitution because of a failure of all the options in her life perhaps most stunningly education the holy grail that has been held up by her own thwarted parents to be their saviour “A prophecy that would rinse her life in a Technicolor glow” ends up failing

    Hardcover · Fata Morgana PDF ´ fata pdf, morgana kindle, Fata Morgana PDFLiving in Switzerland stopping human trafficking is a goal for many Int'l agencies here It's a very interesting book because the topic though fictional is very real It's not just a problem in Belgium as depicted in the story but all across Europe Asia and yes North America The stories and circumstances for which the women find themselves are believable and very sad The author does a good job in providing some insights into the backgrounds of these characters If I have any criticism it is only in the way the book ends it rushes too quickly to a conclusion Also I didn't care for the way in which the main character Sisi was revealed O

    Hardcover · Fata Morgana PDF ´ fata pdf, morgana kindle, Fata Morgana PDFOn Black Sisters Street is the story of four African females who for various reasons end up prostitutes in Belgiums red light district All are chasing the dream of a better life outside their native countries in Africa For one of them the dream will end tragically On Black Sisters Street is a raw provocative and riveting novel from debut author Chika Unigwe The beginning was a little juxtaposed for me but once I got past the first couple of chapters and began to hear the voices of Ama Joyce and Efe against the backdrop of Sisi it became a very engaging read for me and one that I didn't want to put down until I got to the very last page Of course I had to know what happened to Sisi and how she came to her demise I recommend On Black Sisters Street to all who enjoy literary reads storyline
