Thank you so much to Lorraine Montgomery over at Ms M’s Bookshelf for her awesome review of African Me & Satellite TV, and also for taking the time to contact me and ask me some really thought provoking questions. These took me back some years, and brought back lots of memories – good ones, because all was worth it in the end. Thank you Lorraine!!
I received a free copy of this ebook in an online giveaway. These are my honest views of this novel.
Jo Robinson’s novel, African Me and Satellite TV, is a most compelling and powerful novel, with a wide range of characters drawn with deep emotions, and a message some may find uncomfortable. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Jo’s main character, Suzette Hertzog, is caring, artistic, somewhat emotional, and extremely inhibited. She has lived with pushing down her abhorrence of the way whites treat blacks in Zimbabwe ever since she saw “her father punch their driver in the face. Her 10-year-old heart had frozen in her chest, and over the next few days of listening to her parent’s vicious racist rants over his suspected, but unproven, theft of five litres of fuel, and watching him sobbing, denying it, begging them not to make him go, she finally decided to stop looking.”
