I am currently reading 'Season of Migration to the North' by Tayeb Salih. Any one who knows me knows that I have a soft spot for modern classics as well as books that are set in African countries. So when I found 'Season of Migration to the North', I thought Christmas had come early.
Sadly, I'm finding it difficult to get into the novel. There are moments when I find myself immersed in the little village on the edge of the Nile and then there are times when I am confused, finding it difficult to appreciate Salih's work. The English Literature student in me tells me the confusion I feel is the same confusion the narrator feels but I usually tell that side to shut up so I can try and enjoy the book.
I am terrible with reviews and it actually sounds like I dislike the novel, I don't. And if you want moments of exquisite straight to the point prose I highly recommend you read it.
