I really liked this book. The narration was authentic and interesting.
The story was strong and realistic.
I 'll never eat a cockroach the same.
A quite amazing story of a sportsman who found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, living in Gaddafi's son's apartment as the Libyan people rose up against him. His fight to stay alive, a glimpse into the horror that surrounded him as civil war raged and the fear and frustration that engulfed him as he tried to escape.
Intertwined with his time in and escape from Benghazi was his journey there, from birth in Nigeria through his time in Boston via London, his frustrations in the American collegiate system and onwards to becoming a pro basketball player in far flung corners of the world.
A truly amazing tail of survival and a horrible glimpse into how quickly a situation can descend into chaos, madness and horror, alongside the journey of a little boy from Lagos chasing his basketball dream.
A fascinating listen.
