"'We can't complain about people not buying our books when we aren't writing for them': Jennifer Malec chats to bestselling author Dudu Busani-Dube "
"It is not every day that one comes across a love story written by and for a black African woman.....in the 2000's. The opening chapter is set in Bree Street....hello......the main characters live in Naturena..... and somewhere in there there is drama in Clearwater mall. Very relateable. Besides the familiarity of the Hlomu character and setting the storytelling reminds me of chats with my friends...easy just. To top it all the story is one of love. Zulu Taxi Love!! Toxic, scary, funny, addictive love. Once you start the journey with Hlomu you will struggle to let it go. Once you meet the Zulu brothers with their bug-eyes and shady lives you will never look at a tall dark Zulu Taxi driver the same. Enjoy. It's a gem."
"I will never look at taxi drivers the same way... What an intriguing read! Can't believe I took so long to read this book after a friend recommended it. I read this book in 2 days, that's how good and easy read the book is. As for Hlomu, where does one start? She is a woman who makes things happen, she is a home builder, a pillar of strength for the family and a perfect mother,sibling and daughter anyone could ever ask for. She has imperfections of cause, but gets things done."
"These books are such a thrill! The minute you finish the one, you immediately want to read the next one. Well that's how it was for me. I enjoyed the books because they tell true African stories that people deal with day to day.The lessons that I have taken from this book are that, firstly, every relationship is complicated, it takes two people who are will to work at it for the relationship to make it. Secondly, family is important, you do everything for each, even die for each. And that loyalty is everything!"
"Wow this made me believe in love more. Thank You."
"Hlomu disappointed me full time. Like she's letting us zulu women down. WTF she should stand up for herself, learn to say no and not always let Mqhele control her"
"Eish. If I've never been in the same situation, I'd be judging Hlomu harshly."
"Hlomu has become a rich snob tjo ..typical But i guess shes allowed coz she contributed so much to da family..ukubaphathisa imali yabo kahle"
"Dudu I love yoursense of humour though."
