    One thought on “Child Witch London”

    1. Continuing where the brilliant Child Witch Kinshasa left off, the second volume of Dudu's story sees him swap the wild streets of his native Congo for the more peaceful of suburban England. Yet despite the change in location, Child Witch London holds just as much drama, and is captivating to the end. What would it feel like to be 'helped' by a richer people? Would the experience of going from a third world to a first world country always be a good one? And what are our true motives for 'helping' [...]

    2. A very good novel; once you start reading it, you can't take your mindoff the story - I read both volumes in less than two weeks.I 've never been to England or Congo, but this book took meto both places and I learned about the culture of the peoplewho live there. It is a very well-researched story, which shows thebeauty of Congo, the political intrigues, and how some children arepersecuted by those who believe in witchcraft. Anti-hero Frank, ajournalism trainer, cannot remain impassive when he m [...]

    3. Excellent read. Again! I love the way the story twists and turns, making you think first one thing is happening, then you find out it's not, but then again it could be!! Phew!How preconceptions can change a persons view of events is fascinating.I would love to see this and Child Witch Kinshasa as a film. I could really see it being successful.I shall miss reading about Dudu and Frank though.Do you have any plans for a third in series which revisits characters etc in the future?

    4. I read it in one day. I simply could not put this book down. Brilliant plot with an unexpected twist at the end. Dudu is such an extraordinary character. Strongly recommend the book!

    5. I read this book soon after reading the Child Witch Kinshasa. In reading the first book, I had felt horrified by the way humans could treat each other when certain social or environmental structures are absent or allowed to be abused. In this book the author very skilfully points a questioning finger back to the horrified classes living within the comfort of our "established" social structures. Mike Ormsby manages to do this without turning it into a "Tarzan in London" story - although there are [...]

    6. Captivating characters in a sadly real setting.I put this book down only a few times. The individuals are finely drawn and their dilemmas pull me in. I await the next chapter. I hope it comes.
