Tough read, more a political thriller

BLACK GOLD - Augustine Sam

This was a bit of a tough read for me. I loved the idea of a fledgling couple trying to find their place in the world. With the corruption and politics pulling them apart, I expected a bit more on their personal stories, but the story seemed to focus largely on the dilemma of which of the lesser evils should they go with. I felt that their relationship was glossed over and not very emotional, and I hoped for more. I felt that this was more of a fiction story with only a touch of romance.

I received a copy of this story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.
