Day 22 of #BOTY2019: The best story you heard/read

I will obviously go with best story you read. Helon Habila`s Travelers wins this one. This book is brilliant,the story line is unpredictable and gripping. The whole time,I wondered why people travel across the seas to get away from Africa? Helon takes us on a journey to understand why people leave Africa,the conditions they go through on water and when they finally get to the promised land. At some point,I could n`t stomach the tale. I had to put the book away.
