A novel about an African clan that gradually falls apart after Christian missionaries
arrive. It is written simply, from the Ibo point of view represented by the main
character Okonkwo, a macho warrior dedicated to the traditional ways. The first half
of the book is not very interesting. Then the white missionary arrives and the clash
of cultures begins.
