REVIEW Things Fall Apart

DOWNLOAD ´ Things Fall Apart More than two million copies of Things Fall Apart have been sold in the United States since it was first published here in 1959 Worldwide there are eight million copies in print in fifty different languages This is Chin. The drums were still beating persistent and unchanging Their sound was no longer a separate thing from the living village It was like the pulsation of its heart It throbbed in the air in the sunshine and even in the trees and filled the village with excitement Chinua Achebe Things Fall ApartThis is a book of many contrasts colonialism and traditional culture animism and Christianity the masculine and the feminine and the ignorant and the aware although who is who depends on who s speakingOkonkwo is one of the most intriguing characters in African fiction He epitomizes so much I dislike he s abusive misogynist has very little patience or tolerance for the weak and is perhaps he s even over ambitious Despite all his faults it s impossible not to pity him a little because after all the life he knows the life of his ancestors is being taken from him uite cruelly by the British settlersThis book really takes the reader into the Igbo culture Achebe shows the traditional culture very well a culture which is rife with superstition but rich in context I loved the inclusion of the African proverbs and folk tales and the details of the Igbo clan system Achebe also shows how tightknit precolonial African culture was and how despite not having the so called civilized institutions things went pretty smoothly because of the community spirit and also the societal rules The importance of ancestors in society is a part of this The land of the living was not far removed from the domain of the ancestors There was coming and going between them Achebe managed to inject some humour into such bleak subject matter although I think this feat is uite common among African writers You grew your ears for decoration not for hearing What I found difficult to come to terms with as an African Christian myself is the horrific way Christianity was introduced to the African continent However despite the lack of respect the colonialists showed to the people it s hard to deny that there were some aspects of African tradition that were outdated and people had the option of leaving such tradition behind especially if it was harmful For example in this book the outcasts and the parents of twin babies who had to kill their babies to prevent evil from entering the village obviously found it easier to abandon traditionI think this book was the first one that made me realize the terrible impact of colonialism I ve always been curious about how Chinese women with bound feet must have felt after that fashion was seen as barbaric and unfashionable and in the same vein I ve also wondered about how those in African cultures who had lots of power and were accorded lots of respect might have felt when new values undermined everything they had worked towardsThis book reminds me a lot of Ngugi wa Thiong o s The River Between which focuses on similar subject matter albeit on the other side of the continent Kenya I would highly recommend both of them
