Publisher's Summary

The story of a man whose foreign education has separated him from his African roots and made him parts of a ruling elite whose corruption he finds repugnant. More than 30 years after it was first written, this novel remains a brilliant statement on the challenges still facing African society.

Obi Okonkwo is an idealistic young man who returns to Nigeria for a job in the civil service following an education in the UK. Managing to resist the bribes that are offered to him, he falls in love with an unsuitable girl and sinks into emotional and financial turmoil. The lure of easy money becomes harder to refuse, and Obi becomes caught in a trap he cannot escape.

    Story
    "Worth reading"

    Narrator tried different characters but sounded strange at times. A lot of Nigerian culture inside. Shines an inside light on the evolution of corruption in a man's life

    Story
    "A fast-paced climax to a thrilling trilogy"

    It really wove together all the characters from 'Things fall apart" and "Arrow of God".
    That Achebe wrote a lot about vulnerable male characters posturing as strong men with underlying mental health issues so long ago is just wow!
    It's interesting to have read them before watching "American Gods" though.
