    Usually we get to read world literature which is translated to English. In the process of translation the true essence of what the writer wants to say may be lost. The beauty of this book is that Chinua Achebe has written it in English and he paints a very beautiful picture of how life in a small village of Nigeria is in his own words.
    I had not come across many books written by African writers about Africa. Was happy that I found this book. Its a very good book written in a very simple manner. Quite interesting.
