#BookReview : Iban Woman by Golda Mowe
πŸ“–πŸ“–πŸ“–
Iban Woman presents the story of Ratai, who is not so much a woman as regards the social meaning of the word. She is more skilled at hunting than at weaving skirts. War expeditions interest her more than sowing the paddy with other woman of her longhouse.
πŸ“–πŸ“–πŸ“–
This book is at once a journey through the very intriguing Iban culture, and Ratai’s quest tofind a balance between her desire to be the perfect Iban woman and her lust for adventure.Β While reading this book, I was reminded of Chinua Achebe’sΒ Things Fall ApartΒ at several points.
πŸ“–πŸ“–πŸ“–
I enjoyed reading this book throughout except one or two parts and that's because I’m not a fantasy person. But that is a personal issue.Β So most readers will love this book.
