I ve just finished Abyssinian Chronicles Which is a bit of a relief because I found it uite hard work The good stuff first it s a story that traces a couple of generations through the history of modern Uganda with the arrival of Idi Amin and the collapse of his regime the seuence of messy guerilla wars the rise of AIDS and so on The central character is initially brought up in a village before moving to Kampala is from a Catholic background and is educated in a rather brutal seminary his grandmother is a midwife he ends up leaving Uganda to move to Holland So there s lots of good material And lots of striking incidents and some strong though not generally very likeable charactersDespite which after reading a hundred pages I checked to see how long the book was and had a sinking feeling when I saw there were still 400 pages to goThe problem is the prose style uite apart from a tendency to clich it seems like Isegawa reacts to similes the way a small child reacts to candy Everything is like something These similes are sometimes uite good in themselves he describes a priest at the seminary as having an ego as large as a cirrhotic liver but I found the overall effect distracting And it s part of a generally over written shouty kind of tone the book has which I just didn t get on with sometimes I d get into it and be uite absorbed for twenty or thirty pages and then some turn of phrase would snap me out of it againI did wonder whether it was a problem with the translation but as far as I can tell from the title page the book was written in English I guess English must be the author s second language which is pretty impressive but doesn t alter the fact that I didn t enjoy his proseHere s an example of the kind of paragraph that would annoy meIt struck him like a bolt of lightning splitting a tree down middle Nakibuka Had the woman not done her best to interest him in her life Didn t he in his heart of hearts desire her Had he ever forgotten her sunny disposition her sense of humor the confident way she luxuriated in her femininity The shaky roots of traditional decorum halted him with the warning that it was improper to desire his wife s relative but the mushroom of his pent up desire had found a weak spot in the layers of hypocritical decency and pushed into the turbulent air of truth risk personal satisfaction revenge His throttled desire and his curbed sex drive could find a second wind a resurrection or even eternal life in the bosom of the woman who with her touch had accessed his past saved it and redeemed his virility on his wedding night Sweat cascaded down his back his heart palpitated and fire built up in his loins200 pages of this stuff would have been harmless enough and I might have said that despite a few flaws it was still well worth reading 500 pages was too muchBut I stuck it out to the end Partially from stubbornness but mainly because I bought Abyssinian Chronicles as my book from Uganda for the Read The World challenge
