“Camouflage” by Selassie Mensah, averagely, is a good book—good in a way that gets you to read on, no matter how much you might want to put it away. It has an awesome cover too so that is a plus.
If you ask me to use a word to describe the book, I’d say “Life.”
Yes, the book is life and has life. It embodies everything that is life. It is amazing how through carefully arranged strings of words, you get to be alive and experience the significance of life.
The treasures concealed in the trenches of this book aren’t one to be overlooked.
There will be no time to put the book down. It plunges you into depths of despondency just to find inspiration and courage in the most unanticipated places. You become a bearer of the Aya symbol. Just as its title connotes, you become a symbol of endurance and resourcefulness.
