The Colonial Gentleman's Son - An Absolute Must!

Posted by John Powell on September 21, 2011 at 4:10 AM

This is the story of the life and career of Kwame Mainu, born in Ghana in 1957. I found that it vividly portrayed the feelings and experiences of a principled individual as he battled his way through life's temptations and dilemmas. The interpersonal relationships are intriguing. My only criticism was that some of the engineering technical detail went over my head.

Set against and skilfully intertwined with the political and economic development of an emerging African nation it is a broad ranging and full blooded novel which would provide a rewarding read for any avid story lover like myself.

To anyone with a particular interest in Ghana (or Africa for that matter), the fact that it is packed with fascinating insight into its history, economy, culture and, most of all, its people, it is an absolute must.
