    Okonowo is the greatest warrior alive. His fame has spread like a bushfire in West Africa and he is one of the most powerful men of his clan. But he also has a fiery temper. Determined not to be like his father, he refuses to show weakness to anyone - even if the only way he can master his feelings is with his fists. When outsiders threaten the traditions of his clan, Okonowo takes violent action. Will the great man's dangerous pride eventually destroy him?

Great book! Great price!

by Colleen M on Sep 26, 2013

The price couldn't be better (mine was 99 cents) for a book that was required reading for my LIT class. The book itself was engaging and interesting. I was thrilled that it was easy to read and kept my interest.

To finally read a book from an African author who places you right in the middle of life in Nigeria. You will not be able to put this book down. Not to long or to short. This book will open your eyes to a life and people that you have only known by hearsay.

Things Fall Apart was a book I had to read for a World Literature class. It was a decent story....one of the better ones I had to read for this class.

so sad

by kath on Sep 24, 2009

This is a really sad story ... you will learn about some tribal "ways", but I'm sure there are better books out there - not really well written, but okay.
