Summary My Sister the Serial Killer

When Korede's dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister Ayoola she knows what's expected of her bleach rubber gloves nerves of steel and a strong stomach This'll be the third boyfriend Ayoola's dispatched in uote self defence and the third mess that. My Sister the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite is a 2018 Doubleday Books publication Genius That provocative title and amazing cover art certainly piues one s curiosity Noticing all the positive reactions the book received I just had to see for myself if it was worth all the kudos Well I have to say this is my kind of book Seriously I really really really love satire and dark humor I do understand it is often an acuired taste but it takes a special kind of creativity and balance to pull it off Dark humor and satire are often very subtle and if you aren t in on the joke it can sail right over your head It reuires a little effort from the reader too on occasion and that is the case with this bookFamily is supposed to help one another out right Set in Nigeria amid a corrupt system of law and order Korede is forever coming to the aid of her beautiful but kooky younger sister Ayoola who has a bad habit of killing her boyfriends She always claims self defense but she s never injured and her conscience never seems to suffer Korede is a borderline antisocial nurse comfortable around her comatose patient to whom she bears her soul than with anyone else She has a crush on Tade a doctor she works closely with However when Ayoola shows up at the hospital to visit her sister Tade is immediately smitten with her So not only is Korede hurt emotionally with her sister s history with men to consider this development is uite troubling Deep down Korede is angry jealous of her beautiful favored sister but she always comes to her rescue Ayoola is self absorbed flaunting her beauty and appears not to notice the stress and strain she causes Korede Both sisters are flawed with abominable character traits but at the same time they both managed to inconceivably elicit sympathy from me The author creates a uniue brand of suspense an ever present sense of dread while toying with the readers emotions The social commentary could be at the core of the story perhaps playing a key role in the sisters pathos I cannot imagine her resorting to stabbing if that particular knife were not in her hand almost as if it were the knife and not her that was doing the killing But then is that so hard to believe Who is to say that an object does not come with its own agenda Or that the collective agenda of its previous owners does not direct its purpose still There s much to ponder on in this amazing debut novel Kordede s stoic inner thoughts stole the show for me though The story is meant to be dark meant to be taken seriously but so sardonic it is morbidly funny at times But one thing is for certain this author has done an incredible job creating these wickedly entertaining characters adding rich layers to the story while keeping the prose pointed and sharp even minimal and still manages to add the rarity of humor into the mix with perfect balance and poise I simply could not tear my eyes off the pages It is also a rarity for me to say I liked a book better than I thought I would but this one caught me completely off guard Overall I am mightily impressed with this stunning but unsettling debut and yes it deserves the kudos

My Sister the Serial Killer

Korede's long been in love with him and isn't prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back but to save one would mean sacrificing the other My Sister the Serial Killer is a blackly comic novel about how blood is thicker and difficult to get out of the carpet than wat. Set in Nigeria My Sister the Serial Killer follows dependable Korede and her younger sister Ayoola who oops occasionally murders people Braithwaite s debut ranges from wry and macabre to predicable and stale She lures her audience with two striking opening lines and the first few chapters promise a sinster tale of deadpan humor and sly coverups but the book uickly succumbs to familiar tropes the beautiful can do nothing wrong younger sister and the older less attractive sibling bearing the brunt of responsibility a woman so beautiful men just want to be with her and two women fighting over the same man Aside from taking a satirical approach to murder there s nothing subersive about this book Its a tale of performing unspeakable acts in the name of self preservation and sisterhood whose twists and conclusion are forseeable however it s a uick read with occasional hints of humor My Sister the Serial Killer is best approached as a small snack for an amusing afternoon the kind of book one should check out from the library swallow in two bites and promptly return I bet you didn t know that bleach masks the smell of blood Most people use bleach indiscriminately assuming it is a catchall product never taking the time to read the list of ingredients on the back never taking the time to return to the recently wiped surface to take a closer look Bleach will disinfect but it s not great for cleaning residue so I use it only after I have first scrubbed the bathroom of all traces of life and death

    OMG This is dark This is incredibly funny entertaining This is wild This is incredibly smart sarcastic and sardonic Why did I wait too long?

    Clever novel about two sisters one of whom is a serial killer the other the resentful yearning enabler The satirical bent works really well here because it walks that fine line of being given the contretemps entirely plausible Interesting observations about social media men and what they want and women who see right through them Well worth a read

    definitely overhyped but i actually enjoyed this than i thought i wouldthis is a super short fast paced novel and due to its length and pacing there really is no opportunity for complex characterisation both korede and ayoola feel very one dimensional and do not live up to the dichotomy their characters are meant to repr
