The Death of Vivek Oji by Akwaeke Emezi



Synopsis of The Death of Vivek Oji by Akwaeke Emezi

Vivek's life isn't exactly ordinary. He has a dad who's always distant, and a mom who tries to understand him but can be a little overprotective. He also experiences these weird blackouts, like he's not totally connected to his surroundings.

Growing up, Vivek finds comfort in his friendships with the Nigerwives' daughters – outgoing, lively girls who are always up for fun. But his closest connection is with his cousin, Osita. Osita's cool and confident, but behind that, he's hiding his own secrets.

As Vivek and Osita grow closer, Vivek's struggles become more intense. Osita tries to help, but it's a mystery even to him. And then, in a moment of complete freedom, something happens that changes everything.

A Brief Review of The Death of Vivek Oji by Akwaeke Emezi

I cried like a baby. I was a sobbing mess! But it was SO good. The writing is absolutely beautiful and makes you think, the themes are also similar to A Little Life.

This story takes place in Nigeria, and it starts with Vivek's mom finding his body wrapped in this colorful fabric. It's heartbreaking right from the start. But it's also an incredibly moving story about family, friendship, and figuring out who you are. I just wanted to reach into the book and give Vivek a giant hug.

I haven't cried this much over a book in a long time. It's just so powerful and emotional.
