I Unload Some Venom on a Book 5 October 2013

Today was the turn of WE NEED NEW NAMES by NoViolet Bulawayo. It's been shortlisted for the Booker, and the fact is I cannot begin to fathom why.

I had a spirited chat with a fan of this book. She (naturally) stated I was behaving in a sexist manner and implied, with dark tones of voice, that I was probably a racist too, because I don't think this is a particularly good book, and *certainly* don't think it's Booker-worthy.

I don't post full reviews on censored sites like Goodreads, so see the whole thing Expendable Mudge Muses Aloud.
