    One thought on “As the Crow Flies”

    1. 3.5 5Waiting This is what is wearing me out These days have minds of their own.I ve reached the point of my literary career where I no longer worry about subconscious overcompensation skewing my evaluations when it comes to works on the margins of my view If another reader finds my praise overblown, I ll be too thrilled with a population large enough to encompass diverging to worry about fake opinions and all that self doubt Time will always be of the essence so long as literature is a subsidiar [...]

    2. A set of short, some very short, stories about love Told in poetic prose that was too elegiac for me to enjoy.

    3. africanbookaddict 2016 11This work was originally written in French as Veronique Tadjo is Ivorian from C te d Ivoire Francophone West African nation Wangui wa Goro who also translated Ngugi wa Thiong o s novel Matigari, which I loved displayed her fantastic powers and translated this work of art as well I m grateful to wa Goro, because without her superb skills of interpreting and transforming this work into English, some of us would really be missing out on some awesome texts But I have to admi [...]

    4. As the Crow Flies is a love story of some sorts The story is a cascade of individual stories capable of standing on their own as shown by one thread which was published under the title Betrayal in the Opening Spaces edited by Yvonne Vera.The story opens with a woman whose husband also has a wife Initially, she was happy her heart was filled with joy Then things began to change and she was not happy any There was a detachment, somewhat And she applied for a divorce The coming of this woman, from [...]

    5. Short unconnected stories told in poetic language The theme of love, longing and loss dominates the work It makes the whole book seem like unwritten love letters from a heart going through different seasons V ronique chose an unconventional format which could leave the book a failure in the hands of someone less skilled, but she pulls it off and leaves us with beautiful compelling snippets of flowing thoughts.

    6. Poetic but I struggled to find the thread between these stories that would have made this satisfying for me.

    7. Reads 35 50 AS THE CROW FLIES BY VERONIQUE TADJO 50booksinayearchallenge 50readschallenge.I am a big fan of word play In my world word play is the beginning of foreplay This love for words make me enjoy poetry a lot I love seeing the intentional grammatical errors I love unveiling the hidden meaning in words Some poems punch me right at the gut rendering me breathless on a spinning headHowever, even with my love for words so strong this book took a heavy toll on me It had slightly over 100 pages [...]

    8. You have got to love Veronique Tadjo There s something about her books It s something than just burying your head in a book You immerse yourself in it You follow her words You listen to their sounds Their echoes The things they say long after you re gone.All or probably most of the stories in the book are expressive Some are like little letters to a lover, and others, they talk of pain, and hope, but Tadjo carves all of these somehow on the theme of love for someone For something.You might have [...]

    9. As the Crow flies wanders and soars just like the bird.The story is told in bits and pieces and you experience different settings, people and emotions and you are left with the task of making meaning of it and seeing how they are all connected.It s a beautiful read.Award 4 starsReason It feels lyrical as you read it and you cannot help but wonder when you will connect the dots as you are carried away by the pieces you read.

    10. A book that I have been meaning to read for a long time, and I guess I am glad that I finally did Though I have to admit that I found Tadjo s style in this novel is not really to my taste The individual sections are lyrical and interesting, but how they all tie in together is not always clear to me.

    11. The short stories left me yearning for writing skills I connected well with the various characters in the different stories The theme of loss and yearning was pronounced
