    THINGS FALL APART tells two overlapping, intertwining stories, both of which center around Okonkwo, a "strong man" of an Ibo village in Nigeria. The first of these stories traces Okonkwo's fall from grace with the tribal world in which he lives, and in its classical purity of line and economical beauty it provides us with a powerful fable about the immemorial conflict between the individual and society. The second story, which is as modern as the first is ancient, and which elevates the book to a tragic plane, concerns the ... Show more

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.
