What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “The story of the effect that British colonization and Christian missionaries had on a fictional African town.  It is moving and tender and among the best in African literature.”

Ethan: “Things Fall Apart was my (as well as much of the world’s) first look into the rich literary tradition of Nigeria. Achebe’s masterpiece shows the colonization of Africa without prejudice or propaganda toward either culture involved.”
