Things Fall Apart
Random House Publishing Group, Jul 1, 1975 - 150 pages
The most enduring account we have of the modern African experience as seen from within. Starting with the intricate pattern of duties and traditions, and the universal human conflicts of a tribal village in what is now Nigeria, Things Fall Apart encompasses the advent of European colonialism, the intrusion of Christianity, and the shattering effects of an entire historical era on the immemorial culture of Africa.

Read this book while I was in High school because it was mandatory. I enjoyed it all the same and I think Chinua Achebe is a great African writer. Read full review
