Things Falll Apart

This book is a brilliant read, and tells of life in African society before Europeans arrived to destroy life as Africans knew it!!!

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.
