In Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe shows his amazing talent for writing about one of the Nigeria’s clans. One character stands out, Okonkwo. He’s the greatest person who helped his clan through thick and thin. Okonkwo’s life was indeed complicated, and it didn’t turn out as he hoped. Okonkwo deserves sympathy for how he overcome poverty after his dad died and also overcome the tragedy of being exiled for seven years for a mistake that he had made. -(part of my English essay)

  The part that's above is my English essay and from that little introduction describes one of the main characters. I give this book a 9 out of 10 because it was an alright book but I think it could have been better. The ending was a very sad ending to me and the best thing about it was that you couldn't have guess that was gonna happen.In all of Achebe's books he always have a twist to the ending which is why I love his books! Hopefully you'll read it and enjoy it.
