An African bestseller written by one of the best authors Africa has ever has ever produced. I read this one as a compulsory Literature book when I was in secondary school, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. There was a time that most of my classmates new almost the whole book by heart. 30 years later and we still talk quote segments of the book that apply to our daily lives. This novel is highly recommended to those who want to discover what life was like in the old days in the villages of Nigeria. Most of my early knowledge about Nigeria came from this book.
