Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Femi | 1/25/2011

    " To me, this is Achebe's best book. It's a beautiful display of the triumph of the great African traditions over the so-called civilisation brought by the Europeans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mariamarta | 9/15/2010

    " It has the best quote that shows the difference between translation and interpretation - culturally apprpriate.

    I've experienced it through many years of interpreting on the job. "

    " In my opinion, much better than "Things Fall Apart." The switching between viewpoints of the African village and the English officers drove home the... drift between them. I also found the ending to be more satisfying, on an allegorical level. "

    " I had struggled to read this book- maybe it was me! I loved Things Fall Apart, picked this up and I noted in the introduction it was the author's favorite. Maybe I'll have to try again sometime... "
