    Description

    Shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2019

    Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2019

    Korede is bitter. How could she not be?

    Her sister, Ayoola, is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola's third boyfriend in a row is dead. Korede's practicality is the sisters' saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood, the trunk of her car is big enough for a body, and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures of her dinner to Instagram when she should be mourning her 'missing' boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit.

    A kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where Korede works is the bright spot in her life. She dreams of the day when he will realize they're perfect for each other. But one day Ayoola shows up to the hospital uninvited, and he takes notice.

    When he asks Korede for Ayoola's phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and what she will do about it. Sharp as nails and full of deadpan wit, Oyinkan Braithwaite has written a deliciously deadly debut that's as fun as it is frightening.

    Tour de Force. Will definitely listen again

    Opia's wonderful performance brought this story to life. So believable that at times I forgot that this was not a memoir.

    The narrator's voice for the main character is rich in emotions while remaining elegantly restrained. The voices for each character are distinct, and the aunties in particular are so well done, I couldn't help but laugh along!

    The story is multilayered and intense. Delivered in small doses, the story web is all the better for the bite-sized chapters. The characters are as complex as the story and are entirely human. Braithwaite's writing impressed me and leaves me thinking about these characters, their choices, and what I would have done, in their shoes. Never moralizing, but always probing and pushing further...

    Finished within a day--couldn't stop listening! I will definitely listen to this again.

    Excellent!!!

    This is by far the best book I have listened to on Audible. The story line is perfect, the narrator excellent. I will download other books by this author without thinking twice.

    Quicky and Enjoyable

    My Sister, the Serial Killer is set in present day Lagos, painting a background of an ordinary hardworking woman, living an ordinary middle class life.

    The plot however is not ordinary, and delivers everything the title promises (there is a sister and she is a serial killer). The writing is sharp and entertaining with interesting characters. The pacing is brisk, with exposition flowing naturally into the main tale. Together, all this makes for the kind of book that is easy to get lost in and finish in one sitting.

    Weruche Opia's narration felt very natural and easy to listen to. However, there were moments where probably different takes were used, and there was a marked difference in vocal quality which would momentarily pull me out of the story. However, the story kept drawing me back in.

    Would recommend for anyone who wants an African story that is not the usual "village girl/boy moves to city and learns a lesson" narrative.

    Gripping!

    The only thing wrong with this book is that there isn’t more of it! I listened in one sitting and enjoyed every moment!

    Exceptional Narration

    As an African, although not Nigerian, I could relate to some of the African elements, and none of the Nigerian specific ones, and it does NOT matter. It is a really enjoyable story, with an unparalleled narrator. I recommend this book to all!

    Gripping

    Once I started listening, I didn’t stop. It’s very entertaining and not so unrealistic that it couldn’t be real. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s also very well read.

    Story of sibling rivalry and extreme loyalty

    The title gives away much of the book's content: a sister who grapples with the murderous ways of her extremely beautiful and spoiled sister. The tension of the story was not kept well enough to engage me deeply. Until the very end, I did not fully understand why the sister stays so loyal to a sister she does not really like and who is egoistic to the extreme.
