Juxtaposing scenes of life in Berlin with memories of Cameroon as well as with recent impressions of the protagonists who visit their former home country while residing abroad, the reader is drawn into the heartfelt and compelling narrative which does not only provide plenty of local colour but also does not shy away from providing a political background to the decisions the characters have to make... Dr. Anke Bartels, Potsdam &&&&& In SNARE, Priscillia Manjoh engages a diaspora narrative that reveals in graphic details some of the realities of living in a context and culture that is vastly different. The ugly realism of bushfalling (emigration) and the struggle to become documented immigrants intertwine with a story of love and (un)pleasant memories of home to make the narrative complex, rich and exciting. Through the experiences of characters trapped in the megalopolis of Berlin, themes of exile, dreams differed and culture shock are expressed with such eloquence that makes the novel terrific. Oscar C, Labang, Ph.D., Kansas City (MO), USA &&&&& SNARE offers the reader a strikingly alert profile of the challenging life of the African in a developed country. The author successfully portrays these scenes through the love life of the main characters Jerry and Pamela which becomes interlocked with the European dream and the tragic outcome of their relationship as a result of the discrepancy between the appearance and reality of what life in the West (Germany) is like. The novel is an eye-opener to those who still have the intention of becoming “bush fallers” with the alluring possibility of a successful life. Dr. Balbina Mesue Ebong, Douala, Cameroon.
