    Okonkwo is born into poverty, with a wastrel for a father. Driven by ambition, he works tirelessly to gain the prosperity of many fields and wives and prestige in his village. But he is harsh as well as diligent. As he sees the traditions of his people eroded by white missionaries and government officials, he lashes out in anger.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Chinua Achebe and/or Peter Francis James?

    Initially, I had problems with the downloading process on my tablet, laptop and my desktop computer. Once I worked out errors, security and update issues I was able to play with no problems. I had to uninstall my app on my Microsoft Surface RT and reload it and then all my audio books showed up. When I called the help desk nothing they told me to try solved my problems and I was on hold for a long time and eventually the call dropped.
    But once I work all these issues out I enjoyed the books and the voice of the narrator.

    Chinua Achebe has painted a picturesque view of his native home Africa. It gave my a insightful view of what it has to be like living in the village in which the plot is set. Their religious and cultural ways of life are all laid out in the text for the reader.
