23. Rosewater, by Tade Thompson

I have given up on this audiobook about a third of the way through. It wasn’t really engaging my interest sufficiently to see how it carries on.

Rosewater is a kind of sci-fi thriller, set in Nigeria in 2066. There has been some kind of alien contact – the alien entity is contained in a biodome. Somehow it is capable of curing people of their illnesses, even reanimating the dead. And it gives some people ESP or telepathic abilities.

Elsewhere this book gets good reviews.  So I can only say that it wasn’t really for me.

3 out of 10.
