An intriguing read!!!

I just finished reading McIntosh Polela's book "My Father My Monster" and i found it to be such a captivating read that started as a horror movie which sometimes kept me awake at night. The ending was however interesting as McIntosh and his sister Zinhle managed to obtain good education and become better citizens beside the squalor of their upbringing. I think McIntosh should finish was he started by tracing his mother's grave and giving her remains a proper burial as knowing where his mother is buried will go a long way towards healing his wounds. As for his evil father, i hope he gets what is coming to him someday as he does not deserve to be called a human being let alone a father.
