Ten Thousand Rocks

Ten Thousand Rocks

Author: Ndirangu Githaiga Format: Paperback Release Date: 26/05/2021

‘Ten Thousand Rocks’ by Ndirangu Githaiga is a multifaceted story following the lives of a young couple and the ability for their relationship to endure through difficult circumstances. Touching on varying topics from racism and prejudice to coming to terms with life altering events, Laura and Will’s relationship reflects on how we communicate and how single decisions can lead to life altering consequences. ‘Ten Thousand Rocks’ is a well-written story with realistic and relatable characters throughout. Through Laura and Will’s relationship and the events of the book we see how their upbringing and their experiences with their family mould both characters, leading them to find a place of belonging in their life or causing conflict within the relationship. The massive ups and downs of a relationship can be found in this entertaining work of fiction. I would have liked to have seen more from Will’s perspective later in the storyline, and I think some of the plot could have been tied up better (the lawyers in particular). However, I did enjoy reading this book and I think that this is an insightful story about communication and relationships. Charlotte Walker, A LoveReading Ambassador

The People of Ostrich Mountain

The People of Ostrich Mountain

Author: Ndirangu Githaiga Format: Paperback Release Date: 14/05/2020

‘The People of Ostrich Mountain’ is a story that spans generations. We first follow Wambũi as she goes to school in the backdrop of the 1950s Mau Mau war, her impressive mathematics skills and intelligence earning her a place in a prestigious boarding school and nurtured by her teacher, Eileen Atwood. The years progress and we follow Wambũi and Eileen’s lives as well as the lives of Wambũi’s children. This is the story of how an intelligent young girl and a compassionate teacher pave the way for generations of success.  I loved reading this well crafted story, each character was brought vibrantly to life and I relished spending time with each character. ‘The People of Ostrich Mountain’ is beautifully written and introduced me to Mau Mau history, a history I was unaware of until now. While navigating the serious issues such as race, gender and immigration, with each character having their own struggles and experiences, I feel the main emphasis throughout the story is on community, goodwill and humanity. This is a book you can relax into, a family and friendship story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and would highly recommend.
