Novelist Shiva Naipaul, reviewing Toads for Supper for Books and Bookmen, enjoyed its "steadying realism" and its "fine writing," noting that the latter was to be found in the descriptions of village life and in the "moving" characterizations of Amodi's father, mother, and friends. Like the other two reviewers, Naipaul had reservations about. cal details are dated. Some fiction like Ike's Toads for Supper and Achebe's short stories are omitted; other novels like Amadi's The Great Ponds were published after her criticism. Her choice of Arrow of God as Achebe's best book is debatable; many critics found it overloaded with proverbs and anthropological detail to the point of boredom.
