Overall Rating: 3.5 stars
Before I started this book, I actually assumed it would be a novel/story on the educational system of Nigeria so I was looking forward to start the book. However, I was a tad bit disappointed at the first chapter as I struggled between the determination of the genre of the book.
I blame myself for starting this book thinking or rather expecting it was a novel-like story rather than a motivational book (personally I think it would have been a dope novel).
I would have to give it to Ngozi Ilondu, the title of the book is a catcher.
Ngozi’s writing is very down to earth and relatable especially for those who went to school in Nigeria. There were not too many tongue twisting dictionary searchable words in the book. She went further to give short stories about her time in school whilst staying true to finding the morale/lesson of the story.
The main catch of this book are the picture quote inserts and the cartoon characters. I found them funny because their expressions depicted the basic expression of a Nigerian high schooler or university student.
There isn’t any plot or plot twist. Ngozi decided to tell her story with words, cartoon characters, motivational quotes and insightful questions
My favorite character is Ngozi Ilondu for taking a bold step in putting her thoughts in a book and publishing it. The book might not be all that, but the author gets a 5 star
In conclusion, TCSH gets
