I had the privilege to read the book in high school. In addition, I have the unique opportunity at TCNJ where I got to study Chinua Achebe and find him to be nothing short of fascinating. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest books ever written.
14 books to read before Hollywood ruins them << Divergent is on this list... I probably wouldn't have read them had I not seen it on one of these kinds of lists. It is a great series and I am ready for book 3! Give it a shot before you see the movie!!
