Recensione

Shortlisted for "Best Books of 2012" by Africa Book Club "Nothing Comes Close explores the usual love story in a very fresh manner, employing lovely prose, suspense and the posing of serious questions to tell an immensely entertaining story. Highly recommended." ~ Richard Ali, Editor-in-Chief, Sentinel Nigeria Magazine. A truly African love story, Nothing Comes Close shows us how African women fall in love-cautiously but completely. Before I began reading, I was worried that Nothing Comes Close would be a generic romance novel about characters with African names. My worries were certainly dispelled as it became apparent that the characters and their lives were crafted by someone who has an eye for and a sense of how African woman think about love and romance. If you enjoyed reading Chibundo Onuzo's Spider King's Daughter, you'll like Nothing Comes Close. It is a romance novel, an adorable chick lit, but it also has a touch of thriller and mystery. ~ Ainehi Edoro, Editor, Brittle Paper In her debut novel, Popoola, explores a theme familiar to most of us, which is that of finding love. However, an unexpected death, imprisonment, betrayal and dark secrets, add twists that make this book much more than a boy meets girl story. A fine debut. ~ Yejide Kilanko, Author of Daughters Who Walk This Path

Nothing Comes Close is the love story of Lola - the most outspoken and independent friend in a group of five girlfriends. The book touches on topics such as romance, loyalty, grief, and tolerance/acceptance of each other among friends who don't necessarily see eye-to-eye on certain issues, for example, having relationships with a married man; or say, cheating on a boyfriend with an ex boyfriend. The highlight for me, however, was the story of Wole's past. Wole is the male protagonist in the novel and is also Lola's love interest. To make Wole's story pull the reader's heartstrings, Ms. Popoola did a very fine job of bringing into play a quite forgotten character in Nigeria's history - Dimka - the man who led the abortive military coup against the then head of State of Nigeria, General Muritala Mohammed. I see many readers researching this important piece of Nigeria's history as they read this book and I really appreciate the author's effort in bringing that to the reader's attention.

I couldn't help but notice that the first quarter of the book started out mundane... even demure. And wham! At an innocent looking party, the reader gets to meet Wole, a truly unforgettable character and everything goes up several notches from there. Once Wole got on the scene, I could not put the book down. Seriously, nothing prepared me for the sharp suspense that pervaded the last three quarters of the book with the introduction of Wole - whom you can guess by now is my favorite character, and one who I'll describe as the good-bad boy...the kind of guy every good girl should avoid but you still can't stop yourself from falling for because deep down, you know he really has a good heart and wants the best for his girl.

It's a wonder that Ms. Popoola hasn't labeled her books as romantic fiction because it does seem that that's where she's headed with her ability of creating believable characters that readers will find themselves rooting for when it comes to that sometimes complicated life challenge of initiating and building love-relationships.
3.0 su 5 stelle Not to bad... 14 gennaio 2014

I do love happy endings and that's just what this book offered. It was simple and somewhat predictable read, but not bad. There were a few aspects that didn't really make sense to me, like what happened to Maureen. It brought nothing of value to the story and if you removed it, the story would move right along without it. The entire circumstances just made no sense, including what Wole did. Wolfe's lockup didn't either, you can't just lock people up without evidence...that should not have gone beyond questioning. Also the mess her sister pulled and him going along with it was too ridiculous. It made no sense which made it unbelievable. Funny thing with fiction is that although we know it's not true, it still has to be believable. It wasn't too bad, just okay.

I gave this book only one star because that is the lowest possible ranking. I couldn't finish this book - in fact I couldn't read more than about 30% of it before I gave up. It is unusual for me to give up on a book, particularly so early in it. The only positive thing I can say about the book is that it might appeal to some teenage girls.

The book is nice.

Would have loved it if the setting was in Nigeria. All the same, the writer was good.
