This book! I enjoyed it. The sibling relationship, the integration of the culture of Yoruba, the food, the suffering, the tears, the healing beginning; I was here for all of it. Stories that are told from various personal viewpoints and have often been favorites in various voices. They extend the plot and add layers to the atmosphere of story-telling and what the author is trying to accomplish, create and elevate complex characters, and add depth to interactions. It also helps to get the reader interested in the story and keep them engaged. Ekwuyasi has woven rich, descriptive prose with simple and direct writing in Butter, Honey, Pig, Bread, Ekwuyasi, from which develops an evocative, fascinating and powerful tale of two generations of women-mothers and twin daughters-and their entangled, strained, broken yet beautiful relationship. Throughout the novel, there were also moments when the prose became more, drawing a wealth of emotion with the depth of individual and experience. Final rating;4/5 @Barcelonafan1 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
