it was ok
Read from June 22 to 23, 2012

I had a really hard time going through this book. Just couldn't relate to the characters and for me this is somehow a fail. I think it's important when the reader likes the characters and feels for them. I couldn't find it here.

Still, I know that Chinua Achebe is a great author and a man of thought. The style was good and sometimes there were some really interesting quotes - like all the political references and commentaries. But overall it wasn't a book I enjoyed.

I liked the cover and what it represents. After finishing his studies in England and returning home, the main character found himself entangled in all sorts of problems. And he couldn't find a way out. Even when he finally did, it added to his misery.
