This review is from: Things Fall Apart (Paperback)
Awhile back this was "recommended" to me by Amazon. I read the summary, it seemed interesting, and the price was right, so I ordered it. For about a year I tried to read it, but found I'd lose interest, leave it down, and end up coming back a few weeks later and starting all over again. Then about two weeks ago, I picked it up and couldn't put it down. Read it in two days. Must have been the right time because I found the story caught me. The writing pulled me in and made me forget that I was reading. That's always the best!
As for the story, I was conflicted - I wanted to identify and support the tribal customs and lifestyle unconditionally. As a person born and raised in the U.S. I struggled with some of the tribe's cruel practices. Well, cruel by my sensibilities. Consequently I found myself a little pleased that some of the characters chose Anglican church beliefs and practices.
