This week’s review:

Things Fall Apart (1958) by Chinua Achebe follows the life of Okonkwo, a member of the Nigerian clan Umuofia, as his village is taken over by missionaries. One of Achebe’s goals in writing Things Fall Apart was to inform people about what really happens to the victims of imperialism, and he gives a refreshing perspective on the topic. The novel also focuses on the struggles specific to Okonkwo’s family and the difficulties they have to overcome. Overall, Things Fall Apart addresses multiple complex issues that you may not have really thought about before, which is what makes it a great book to read if you want to learn something new.
