With over eight million copies in print, Chinua Achebe's work is perhaps the best-known novel in African literature. No other book so powerfully illuminates the African experience. Driven by ambition, Okonkwo works tirelessly to gain prosperity and prestige in his village. But he is harsh as well as diligent. As he sees the traditions of his people eroded by white missionaries and government officials, he lashes out in anger. Things Fall Apart traces the growing friction between village leaders and Europeans determined to save the heathen souls of Africa. Its hero, a noble man who is driven by destructive forces, speaks a universal language.

Great book! Great price!
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.

Work of Art
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.
