"Azzy" is the first of six novels in a series dedicated to "The six wives of Mobi D'Ark". The novels are based on the life and times of a heavy drinking, much wedded and much-travelled English adventurer, who caroused and debauched his way across four continents, making and losing several fortunes along the way. Mobi married his first wife in 1970, and his last wife, forty-four years later, in 2014 . In this, the first novel of the series, it is 1969 and the young adventurer flees from his new life in North America and decides to take a job working for the oil industry in West Africa. It is a time when Nigeria was still adjusting to its post-colonial era and is in the throes of a bloody civil war. Nigeria is Mobi's home for the next two and half years and this is where he belatedly experiences his sexual awakening and has many erotic adventures, before - and after - meeting the sensuous, hot-blooded, volatile Azzy, a gorgeous young black girl from the bars of Lagos. They set up home in the war-ravaged, 'wild west' town of Port Harcourt, and during the next two years, the couple have a stormy relationship which leads to many hair-raising adventures, and unexpected consequences. "Azzy" is a tale of whimsy, sex, drama, violence, black magic and cliff-hanging adventures. Mobi's sexual awakening, his brushes with African Juju and his skirmishes with the out of control military are all graphically described in a tale which the reader will find hard to put down.
Five Boundless Stars
Mobi is one adventurous young man! One minute, I wanted to hug away all his pain; and the next, slap the shit out of him for being so stupid. This is definitely a good read! I do have to warn you; do not read it, and expect to get any sleep. I read as late as I could, for two nights in a row. D’Ark writes in a way to make readers feel as if they are sitting across from him listening to his story; and I was immediately hooked, seriously, he had me at page TWO. This has NEVER happened before.
Mobi D’Ark is obviously a great story teller; I feel I know him and all his friends on a personal level. What an adventure; no adventures!! I also applaud the humility it took to share some parts of the story. Azzy is definitely a woman to write about, whew!!!
The story starts with his first girlfriend and goes on to his many adventures of his travels and women. I must say; I have never heard a sexual awakening story like this, I can’t imagine anyone experiencing anything even remotely close to this.
I feel The Six Wives of Mobi D’Ark deserves a rating of 5 Boundless stars only because 10 isn’t a choice. I absolutely LOVED this book, and would be thrilled to give honest reviews on the rest of this series.
