Sally Dadzie’s “Fourth Finger” is One Hell of an Entrancing Read #LiterallyWhatsHot

This week’s Literally What’s Hot pick is from OkadaBooks bestselling author Sally Dadzie … her latest book is titled “The Fourth Finger”  and reads like a romantic Nollywood movie with lots of action and suspense. The review by Nimide Ogbeun below …

sally pictureLet me start by saying … Sally Kenneth Dadzie’s The Fourth Finger is one hell of an entrancing read!

The 663 paged novel is so intricately woven that my head was left spinning from the plots and twists that came with it.

It started with Raji and Christie, Raji who is married to Salma and Christie to Raji’s best friend, Folarin. Please hang in there … it gets even more interesting …

Things take a different turn when they are caught in a web of lies, adultery and deceit with their partners none the wiser. The adulterous tempest doesn’t end with them, but spreads through several other characters in this book, like the biblical Jezebel, looking for who to devour.

Sacred marital vows are broken, trust is severely damaged and a once love-filled home is filled with threats and veiled accusations. Sex is a weapon here, just like in real life, and business are sealed with it, vengeance is gotten with it, and homes are destroyed on its premise.

The characters in this book run amok with their amorous desires and lust; taking what doesn’t belong to them and dipping their fingers in who doesn’t belong to them with such reckless abandon.

I particular liked the role of Antonia Braithwite, a big shot PR executive, and underground playgirl, owner of the most scandalous blog and self-acclaimed connoisseur of married men. I liked how focused she was in achieving her goals, whether good or evil and how she eventually allowed herself to love and be truly loved.

4th fingerSally’s The Fourth Finger portrayed a society that isn’t too far from the realities in real world Nigeria. In this increasingly amoral generation we are, I see a lot of married men and women who hang their vows at the footstep of their house and forget it all once they step into the real world.

The title The Fourth Finger is in perfect juxtaposition with the story as the fourth finger, where wedding rings are worn as a symbol of marital vows and allegiance holds no significance to the characters in this story.

The story is Nollywood big screens worthy, filled with suspense, secrets, betrayals, intrigue, unspeakable desires, a heady sexual presence which she describes in captivating details, vengeance, and ceaseless passions.

Although, after a long tumultuous fight with the repercussions of their sins, the characters find rays of hope to cling to.

As I closed the book, I was left wondering if it was all worth it for the characters … to toy with their happiness, love, and homes with such recklessness as portrayed. But the one thing I was sure of was that Sally’s The Fourth Finger was definitely worth the read!

    Yes, I read Ms Sally’s ” The Fourth Finger” 6 times back to back. And I must admit, this review does justice to the book. Ms Sally as I always call her is a vampire when it comes to writing. Most times, I always wish a could just have just a moment with her brain…lol

    Yes, I am addicted to her works and this was no exception. In fact, I couldn’t hold myself, I kept telling my friends to visit her blog so that they can also feel the orgasm I always felt whenever I read her works most especially ” the forth finger” “the immortal code” , “it’s another Saturday” and “Novocaine Knight” .
    Watch out for ” Its Another Novocaine Saturday” and imagination will soar.

    Trust me, Ms Sally is da bomb.

    i have followed Sally’s work closely for a while now and this is what I have to say: she is damn good and unpredictable. her stories always have a dark side that brings a twist to everything she writes. i read novocanine night, its another Saturday, the fourth finger, boys with toys, the fish brain clan and a host of others. Keep writing Sally and i promise to buy all your published work. You are an amazing writer

    SALLY IS THE TRUTH ANYDAY ANYTIME
    FROM “ITS ANOTHER SATURDAY” TO “NOVACAINE KNIGHTS” TO EVERY SINGLE STORY WRITTEN, SALLY NEVER FAILS ME
    SHE NEVER DOES

    Finally, my Sally is here, lol. I have been a reader of Sally’s blog moskedapages.com since 2012 and she’s really good. I feel that Sally doesn’t have the hype she deserves yet but I’m yet to read from a Nigerian fictional blogger/author who’s as good as she is. My favourite of her works might actually be the Fish Brain Clan (and all the other books with the same characters…). Sha it’s been long I last read from her in between exams every diet but I’ll run along and finish all the stories I missed.
    And Sally, if you get to read this, this ya picture is popping.

    What can I say? Sally’s TFF was worth my while in terms of money,energy and time.

    What I especially love about Sally’s books isn’t just the good storyline(I mean any writer can have that) but how she entrenches the values that hold the very fabric of our society together.In TFF particularly, I saw friendship,family,diligence,forgiveness,tolerance and the the likes. And oh,she manages to pinpoint the prevalence of Love without been cheesy about it.

    Seriously,if you haven’t read The fourth finger,what are you waiting for?For when elephants will start flying? Lol.

    Anyways,You can buy and freely read more of Sally enchanting stories on her page @www.moskedapages.com

    And Sally, you rock as always

    Sally, I told you that you’ll go places. You’ve not even started. Soon, New York Times will profile you. Huffington Post to come next. I love how she shows passion in her works. With any of her books, you can’t drop the book, until you’re through with it.

    August 18, 2016 at 11:18 am

    I totally agree with this review.
    Sally is the definition of a great writer. I first read her “To Tame a Virgin” and i was held spellbound. For every chapter, it felt like i was in their midst. All her subsequent books i read after that one are like that. Her characters are always real. you can just relate to one or two characters.
    The fourth finger is my new fav, i can relate to the story line and my fav character is #Tondre, i just love those two. I cant wait to finish the book.
    Kudos Sally!

    August 19, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    You all need to read the fish bone series to appreciate Sally more, she’s the total package…..and the reason people are commenting is not just because she’s a great writer but she also has an admirable personality. Sally is confident yet down to earth.

    I love Sally’s writing. Like the review said, her books are encompassing of what’s prevalent in Nigerian society. From start to finish, I’ll bet you can’t put down the book. Wonderful character-building, credible plot, masterful subplots, smooth reading.

    Sally has started a movement. Must be called “The Sallyistas”. Her literary works are joys to behold. We may all have to thank God for giving us Sally in our lifetime. She writes effortlessly and you’ll have nothing else to do, but to imagine the scenes. My weekends aren’t complete without reading your stories. The Fourth Finger will make you to have more than a favourite character. Most conventional stories usually gives one, just a (1) favourite character. TFF has many therein. For me, I loved Tonia, Christie, Fabrice & Izu.

    what more can be said Sally z gooood damn Good,Modupe Olabenjo unknowingly lured me to maskedapages sometime ago,buh it seems a long time now n since Sally has never dissapointed bt rather keeps wowing us from To Tame A Virgin(my favourite of all)to No Heart Feelings,amongst other short mindblowing short stories like”””In A Hopeless Place,Gord she is a Literary Beast.even as m yet to finish The Fourth Finger(sighs) i know she deserves this raving review n so much more

    Sally is a great writer and I love how she makes her stories soo real you can literally put yourself in the shoes of her characters. I love her themes of love, family, friendship and faith. I stumbled on moskeda pages and i haven’t regretted liking the page one bit. It’s paradise on earth for a book freak like me and truth be told, sally has never failed to deliver. I have on several occasions been up for 18 hours or more reading the stories she so intricately weaves and I am also proud to say I have gotten my cousins hooked on moskeda pages and sally’s stories?. I don’t hesistate to purcahse her completed books on okadabooks because i know i will get extra value for my money.You deserve all the praise you get sally and more. May your ink never run dry!

  54. consyspark

    August 21, 2016 at 10:50 pm
