This book describes pre-colonial Nigeria. It takes place in the early 1900s, right when the white missionaries and colonists start taking over. It tells the story of the Igbo people and captures their culture before it was changed by the white settlers. The story itself is interesting and sad and it also captures the heritage of a culture for posterity, so that it won't be forgotten. It's an incredible book- would definitely recommend.
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Book Club, High School, Things Fall Apart, Reading List, Favorite Book
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. I read this book when I was a Freshman in high school. I actually liked it then, but so many of peers did not because it is a weighty and thoughtful book that is probably too mature for many 14 year-olds. It takes place in colonial Nigeria with a heavy emphasis on the effects of missionary efforts.
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe - 1st book for our summer book club. Once I got to part 2 I really started to understand where the book was going. I have a different interpretation of who the messenger was than wikipedia though...
I read Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart" for the first time when I was in High School.And since then I re-read it again and again.It's a wonderful piece teaching us about the struggle for self-determination in pre-colonial Nigeria, and the first colonial encounter.

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe One of my favorite books ever. Cultural shock.
Summer Reading List: 10.) Things Fall Apart – Chinua Achebe
From Wikipedia: Things Fall Apart is a 1958 English-language novel by Nigerian author Chinua Achebe. It is a staple book in schools throughout Africa and widely read and studied in English-speaking countries around the world. It is seen as the archetypal modern African novel in English, and one of the first African novels written in English to receive global critical acclaim. The title of the novel comes from William Butler Yeats's poem "The Second Coming". The novel concerns the life of Okonkwo, a leader and local wrestling champion in Umofia—a fictional group of nine villages in Nigeria, inhabited by the Igbo ethnic group. It also focuses on his three wives, his children (mainly his oldest son Nwoye and his favorite daughter Ezinma), and the influences of British colonialism and Christian missionaries on his traditional Igbo (archaically "Ibo") community during an unspecified time period in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century.

Saga, the story of deserters from two warring militaries who elope, have a baby, and go on the run through alien landscapes. Witty and light-hearted through the angst, this is a love story/sci-fi fantasy romp. The Onion A.V. Club calls Saga "the emotional epic Hollywood wishes it could make."

I'm not really into graphic novels but this one champions natural birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering and attachment parenting in a Star Wars kind of way. My husband bought me the first book and I loved it. Saga by Brian K. Vaughan was a BIG winner at this year's Eisner Awards.

The Exile is the latest addition to the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. It`s a graphic novel, not book 8 but rather a bonus to the series. The book gives a comic book style point of view from the lead character Jamie and his godfather Murtagh. Other books are mainly from Claire`s point of view. Great addition! - hmm!!! I gotta get this.

Pulitzer prize winner - wonderful tale of life in small town America. Set in Maine in a town that's dying, where everyone knows everyone else's business. Excellent central characters and slow burning drama filled with humor and dry observations. Highly recommend.

book worth reading
Empire Falls by Richard Russo My rating: 5 of 5 stars Yes. Yes. Yes. "O wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful, and yet again wonderful, and after that, out of all whooping!" In a very small nut shell (as the novel actually traces multiple plot lines, too many to summarize): Miles Roby has been a fry-cook/manager at the Empire Grill for 20 years. This job is part of the burdening decision to return home when his mother was diagnosed with cancer, and he just never left again. He gave up his education and much of his self-respect being trapped in this tunnel with a freight train coming towards him. So why continue to stay? Well, he has a life here now (or some semblance of one) and his beautiful daughter Tick, who needs all his help surviving the local high school and her crazy-ass mother resides right here in Empire Falls. Then again, the divorce isn't quite final yet so maybe he's still harboring hope for Janine, Miles’s soon-to-be ex-wife, who is now engaged to the arrogant health club owner. Then again, it could be the woman pulling the puppet strings of small town life, Francine Whiting, who owns everything and everyone and keeps dangling the concept of prosperity in Miles's face. No matter the reason, Miles stays and in his roots a completely baffling and fascinating world unfolds. Empire Falls , while slow to start (the prologue is basically chapter one), is a masterpiece of literature. The characterization and depth of development is amazing. I want to personally know Miles, and especially Tick. I didn't even entirely hate Max in the end, which is a feat of epic portions for an author, because Max in an entirely unlikeable character. The novel boasts an arrogant cast of sharp-tongued women, sarcastic old-men and characters ostentatious and stupid enough to serve as the ass end of everyone else's jokes; there is an overtone of comedic relief within the detrimental truth of every one-liner. Set in Small Town, USA, Empire Falls really follows Miles Roby's life and his destruction - Empire FALLS - get it - (and eventual rebuild) of it. While this seems like a minimalist concept, that is the BEAUTY OF IT! In every scene, every character a reader sees some part of themselves. It's like your going along through life and finally recognizing in some way your counterpart in a person you never thought existed. The novel is real. Raw. Unnerving. It is the first Pulitzer Prize winner I've read that I liked - or even finished! (Insert the detrimental "boringness" of The Goldfinch ) Empire Falls is a must read. Must. Read. View all my reviews
