Favorite Book

One of my favorite books is “Things Fall Apart,” by Chinua Achebe. It’s a story about a man named Okonkwo, and shows his rise and fall as a village leader in his village of Umofia. He had three wives, he was a cahmpion wrestler, and his was admired in his village. Okonkwo strived to be successful, because he resented his father for being a failure. But in his quest to be the best, his life begins to fall apart.

I like this book because it shows how Okonkwo came form nothing, to having everything, to losing everything, and hvaing to start over again.
