Bookshelf

Recently read: The Luxe – Not recommended. It was a quick and simply written book without any real substance to grip to. It was fun in parts, but overall a fluffy waste of time. I did  enjoy the description of the ridiculous clothes and people. If you want to read it, check it out from the library like I did.

Things Fall Apart – Highly recommended. Great book written from a native Nigerian’s perspective on a traditional culture in transition. Points out the fallibility of men and the impermanence of life itself. I’m already interested in reading it a second time through to think about it again. I was very impressed with the pacing throughout the book. I was interested and invested in the characters even though it took my awhile to recognize the different names. If you have any interest in Africa at all, read this book.
