This to me is madness, that this man seems to get the victim position when they both are secretive and toxic to each other. This part of it, including the extensive use of complex and hard-to-read sentences, would have benefited from good editing.

The novel provides a plethora of erotic scenes and the stories are told in different tenses that sometimes get mixed up in the course of the novel. The gaslighting and painting of Caroline as the one with the fault just goes ahead to fall in line with the norm in the novel. In that case, I suppose the title of the book is the author making a play at publicity, which she clearly has achieved.With these stories set within Lagos, the author employs a lot of complex sentences and overly sexual content to prove his point. My favourites were definitely: 'The gigolo from Isale-Eko', 'Cuck Up', 'Catfish' (because it was so crazy) 'Beard Gang' and 'International Relations'. Short stories are always a good start to get off a reading slump or ease you out of the state that heavy books leave you in.

From cheating husbands, a mommy's boy, an impotent husband, a side chick, to closeted gay husbands, and many more.I finished the first 4 stories and completely stopped on the 5th story because I didn't sign up for all that.

Nearly All the Men in Lagos Are Mad underscores with wit, humour, wisdom and sensitivity, the perils of trying to find lasting love and companionship in Africa’s most notorious city.

All in all, captivating read, very Nigerian, and funny in some places, also very sad if you're the sort to think about it.When it comes to relationships, you are lucky if you get a happy beginning and a not-so-terrible ending. I finish all my books because when it comes to books I am optimistic, it may surprise me or end up being good ,there's always light at the end of a tunnel but this book, My very first DNF crushed that hope. Her keen eye for the idiosyncrasies of Lagosian culture, combined with his clever wordplay, ensures that every page delivers a punchline.

From the story of a deceptive hookup girl to a woman who carries on wickedness from her teenage years into adulthood. Meeting him again must have brought back the memory of the seemingly pedophile act that closed her off to having anything to do with him as an adult. The men in this book are liars, cheats, scammers, and largely undeserving of the women in their lives. When I first started this book, I saw a review that criticized the author's use of 'Nigerian English' and I thought the person was, well, silly. That's the opening line of the book and through it's 12 short stories you're led through one experience after another of women from all walks of life being shown pepper and how they managed to make pepper soup or shito!My favourites were International relations, A Lovers Vendetta, Side Lined, Independence Day and Beard Gang - something about its crudeness, factuality and engagement was hooking.
