Ainehi Edoro Reviews Foreign Gods by Okey Ndibe

Foreign Gods, Inc.Verdict: carrot

The gods in Okey Ndibe’s second novel, Foreign Gods Inc., are playthings for the rich and the famous. They undergo the indignity of being stolen or exiled and then bought and sold like common articles of trade. Even Nietzsche, for whom gods were disposal beings, would have been scandalized by the idea of gods turned commodity. He would have felt a bit queasy at the thought of high-end “god shops” in bustling American cities where Hollywood stars and “titans of the corporate world” paid four hundred thousand dollars for a deity without flinching. – See more at: http://brittlepaper.com/2014/01/great-god-heist-review-okey-ndibes-foreign-gods/#sthash.5omkpci3.dpuf
