Things Fall Apart

By Chinua Achebe

A TRAGIC story that follows Okonkwo, a ‘strong man’ of an Ibo village in Nigeria, and his rise to, and subsequent fall from, his position as an important and respected tribe member to an exile.

Upon his return, he finds the Obi tribe radically changed due to the encounters with the White man and their weapon of choice: the Bible.

A groundbreaking novel set at the peak of the scramble for African territories by European powers.
