Somewhere along a border between Mozambiue and South Africa along a border that moves its position according to what is considered politically expedient at a moment in time a severe drought is devastating everything A small clinic long since forgotten by the high and mighty finds it has become the refuge for hundreds of desperate people daily pour in until they become overwhelmed by this deluge with no sign of outside help This leaves a disparate group of individuals trying to find the necessary supplies to feed all which soon runs out leaving them with no alternative but to find a new way to solve this dilemma a drastic crazy and illegal plan is soon hatchedBundu is an old fashioned adventure tale and a love story set in a harsh landscape decimated by drought it is also about how people survive in this environment not merely on a physical level but what mechanisms habits beliefs they rely on to communicate with the world This book is not one I would normally read in fact based on the blurb on the cover I would not have picked it out from other books on a shelf as I said above it is a good old fashion tale of love and adventure There is nothing wrong with it being that except this is on The Independent Foreign Fiction prize longlist meaning it needs to have something else to compete on a level playing field with the other contenders it must have depth gravitas etc Bundu does although on one level it is a tale of love and adventure and yet it is also a study of the characters a motley gathering of the washed up and lonely all of whom are seeking some resolution some answershttpparrishlanternblogspotcoukPS the star rating should be 35 but it can t do half stars

I picked up this book from the library as it looked interesting but ultimately found it to be frustrating It centres around a small South African medical centre as the staff try to deal with an influx of refugees fleeing famine in Mozambiue But conditions are not great in South Africa either and the centre soon starts struggling to deal with having to feed and treat all of the refugees This aspect of the plot alone could have been explored in detail but the book seems to focus on our lead character Brandt and his relationships with his co workers The romance between him and the leading female character felt awkward as if the author felt obliged to include a romance There was also a potentially interesting thread about the tensions between Brandt and his black co workers learning to respect and trust each other after being brought up in a society that didn t see them as eual but again this aspect is not explored as much as it could have been It is a short book and all of these threads are suished and condensed rather than being given room to breathe Characters verge on stereotypes the drunken adventurer the difficult unconventional woman etc Having said that I did like that it showed off the multilingual aspect of South African society including snippets of dialogue in Zulu with translations Eually it would have been nice to have a glossary of some of those Afrikaans terms which were left untranslated and which this English reader is still not 100% sure what they meant There were also a couple of times where the word order seemed strange which I m going to put down to choices by the translator Overall it s a uick read only just over 200 pages and I think that brevity hurts the book It s okay but a longer book would have helped us understand about the characters and situation
