The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Things Fall Apart - Chinua Achebe - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Things Fall Apart:

The rise and fall of Okonkwo.

My favorite Chinua Achebe quote from the book:

"There is no story that is not true."

Questions to ponder while reading Things Fall Apart:

What have you done because you were afraid?

What do you consider failure?

My review of Things Fall Apart:

I didn't have much sympathy for Okonkwo.

I don't like the results of colonization.

Women have had a hard time in every culture.
