Description of Things Fall apart by Chinua Achebe

“Things Fall apart” is a really well thought out book, full of valuable information, and the action steps needed to apply it. Chinua Achebe is the author of this amazing book. How can a book written with such simple yet crafted words be so profound and powerful? A must-read for anyone with an interest in Africa. This is such a beautifully written book. A compelling tragedy of the life of an Ibo warrior as Christianity and colonial governance ripped though a traditional society. Within the narrative, Achebe describes in detail the social customs, the laws, hierarchy, religion, food, farming, social structure, marriage, the position of women and children- so much fascinating information woven seamlessly into, and integral to, a compelling narrative. This the story of the downfall of Okonkwo, a proud but violent man, and village Ibo culture though the coming of the missionaries. Achebe writes in a flat nonjudgmental style describing both the good and the bad aspects of day to day village life, dominated by superstition but for all that functioning and structured. The arrival of the white missionaries and the villager’s response to that brings it crashing down. By the end it reminded a little of animal farm, looking from Ibo to missionary and seeing neither superior to the other. Achebe’s Things Fall Apart read and feels different in so many ways.


The novel is effectively split into two halves, the first telling the life story of Okonkwo, the hero, in a traditional rural setting, and the second describing his village and clan’s tribulations as the white man appears. The book reads at first quite differently from a novel, more like a loosely connected connection of tales, an epic interspersed with essential family history. Okonkwo, from modest origins, has risen to become a successful farmer, fighter, and a peer of his clan. His preoccupations are woven into village customs, traditional law, and religion. His story is one of everyday lore mixed in with the requisite homage to the supernatural. Then, in the novel’s second part, the colonist arrives missionary, policeman, judge. Okonkwo’s world is irredeemable upset as its structures, its economy, and its very beliefs fall to the blows of superior force. Everything begins to fall apart. And the story told from the point of view of the Africans, remains forever poignant, the irruption of unforgiving modernity among its unsuspecting victims forever incomprehensible. Eminently accessible, this is a compelling, wrenching read. Written with humility but deep knowledge. Read this book because it will make you a different person.
