My Angel the Devil, Dan Agbeje

Abuse & Substance Abuse, African American Fiction, Contemporary Fiction, Literature & Fiction

The story of a girl with simple dreams, to finish high school, marry the love of her life, study at university, have children and live happily for the rest of her days.

All things fall apart as ungodly fanatical violence sweeps through the region making Fatima tap into a strong sense of defiance that almost sends her mad.

As the world burns, follow a town’s desperate struggle for survival.

My Angel the Devil is one of the most hard-hitting, emotive and poignant novels I have ever had the pleasure of reading and a novel that installed fear as well as bewilderment in me. My Angel the Devil is not a book for the faint-hearted because it explores many dark and troubling themes, however, despite it featuring hard-hitting topics it is also a captivating book that is important. My Angel the Devil is an important story because of the themes it explores because they shed light on the real-life events that occur within the world and that is what makes My Angel the Devil a poignant novel that should be read and not missed.

My Angel the Devil will take its readers to Nigeria and will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Fatima, a young woman who is going to marry Ike who she is madly in love with. The wedding is being planned, and her family is delighted, and Fatima is looking forward to a life of happiness with the man she loves. However, life can be cruel, and Fatima is soon taken along with many other young women by a group of extremists. The leader of the group is called Alihu, and he wants Fatima, badly and as well as this he wants to control all that is around him and take over the town in which Fatima is from. What follows is a hard-hitting story that explores extremism and abuse, and the result is upsetting but also necessary to know because sadly, much of this occurs in the world especially in developing countries.

The story of My Angel the Devil is not for the faint-hearted but the story, although upsetting is not so oppressive that you will struggle to read it. In fact, I found that the poignancy of the story and how hard-hitting it was compelled me to turn the pages even faster because I wanted to know about the events because I know it happens in the real world but I do not know precisely how it happens. I believe it is essential to learn about extremism and abuse because with knowledge comes change and once people are equipped with the knowledge they can try and make a difference. That is why I am in awe of the exceptional author Dan Agbeje for writing such a poignant story so perfectly and for spreading knowledge and facts on the topics explored throughout the book.

Dan Agebje is an incredible author who has written a notable story that will not be forgotten for a long time. Agbeje clearly has a passion for sharing not commonly or openly discussed topics with his reader and these themes that Agbeje shares will help inform readers and that is incredible as well as entertaining.

Not only is Dan Agbeje a fantastic author for exploring such topics but he is also an excellent writer who knows how to grab and hold his reader from the start, even when tricky issues are discussed. You have to be careful when writing about themes that are upsetting as well as brutal because if you do not write about them correctly, there is a fear that the reader could stop reading. Agebje, however, is a master storyteller and knows precisely how to write his book so that readers are entertained from beginning to end and read without hesitation.

The literature courtesy of Dan Agbeje was dramatic and compelling, from the start the reader is given exceptional descriptions and phenomenal literature that is full of twists and turns galore. The twists and turns laced throughout the book will intrigue the reader so much that their mind will be racing with potential endings.

Overall My Angel the Devil is a splendid novel that is guaranteed to entertain readers from beginning to end and so, I have no choice but to award the story five stars!

As the writer of this work, this review was quite captivating and honest. I had a story to tell and it is an honour to share it no matter how hard it was to tell.
