really liked it
Read in February, 2010

Achebe has always written powerful novels that described the intense central African culture without boring the reader by pages and pages of describing each ritual. These books focus more on how the arrival of the Europeans causes upheavals among the Igbo tribes and the like. As such, the endings are always tragic and at times the characters are unforgivably set in their stubborn ways, but the books are enjoyable and mystic.
