Title: Uzo Amaka

Name: Ages of Suffocation: Remembered Dreams

Publication Date: July 19, 2015

Genre: Memoir

Rating: 4 Stars=Great Page Turner

Uzo Amaka takes a unique approach of telling her story. Oma is speaking to a counselor when she starts remember her past. This is a different type of memoir by the way the author shares the story from three points of view. Oma’s child voice is innocent in nature, her teenage voice more curious while trying to understand the changes in her life and her adult voice shares her present life and struggles. The best part of this book is that the reader is allowed to grow up with Oma as a silent friend.

Ages of Suffocation touches on family, abuse and marriage. It is a heartfelt story of Oma a young lady trying to stay in control of her life by hiding the very things that were holding her hostage. I loved this author’s writing style and look forward to more of her work. I recommend this book to others.
