Review: Underneath These Skirts by Njoki wa Maita

UNDERNEATH these SKIRTS - Njoki wa Maitha

I can see where the author was trying to go with this book and believe they might have the makings of an interesting story there. However, there were glaring errors which really put me off.

 

The English is really quite bad, with words missing, inappropriate words and words such as 'sitted' which is not part of English language - 'sat' would be the appropriate word in this case. 

A good proofreader could have corrected these mistakes and made all the difference to the book.

 

I didn't find the story or characters very believable, in particular the main character. The way she interacted with other people didn't ring true and seemed to go against everything she stood for.

 

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
