Short story review: Treasure by Oyinkan Braithwaite (Hush Collection)


Treasure is an aspiring Instagram influencer in Nigeria with thousands of followers. Treasure takes photos with many expensive pieces such as Gucci and Fendi.

One follower in particular becomes a little obsessed with Treasure. When Treasure accidentally leaves her location on a post, she erases it quickly. But not before the wrong person sees it.

My Thoughts:

I listened to most of this one on Audible and read just the beginning on Kindle.

This is a very tragic lesson in portraying yourself on social media and the risks one takes when posting to a dedicated audience.

I loved the detailed description of Nigeria by casting the landscape and accents of the characters throughout the short story.
