What an interesting book! The language is simple, but lovely. The best thing would be to hear this book read by James Earl Jones. Achebe describes the life of Okonkwo and the tragedy that befalls him because he is afraid of being seen as weak. Set in Africa, there is rich description of tribal life and how it is affected by the coming of European missionaries.

I'll be sending this book to new BookCrossing member nikkers. She requested this in a nervousness exchange, which is a good thing because it made me read the book before releasing it. What an intriguing story!
