Obi Okonkwo leaves his village for an education in Britain and then a job in the Nigerian colonial civil service, but is conflicted between his African culture and Western lifestyle and ends up taking a bribe. His romantic interest Clara reveals being an Osu - outcast which makes marriage to her a challenge as with his family. Okonkwo's life will take twists and turns hinged on his family's acceptance of his love and sticking to his principles/values which in the end, he's forced to make the compromise which leads into a sting of other operations. NO LONGER AT EASE by Chinua Achebe was published in 1960 and is definitely worth turning the pages on every now and then. #TuesdayTurner #NoLongerAtEase #ChinuaAchebe #Novel #Fiction #African #AfricanWriter #History #BubooxBooks #buboox #BubooxReads #AwardWinning #BestSelling

When a book has an amazing blend of themes such as: culture, history, relationships, self discovery and pursuit of happiness, you can expect to have a good read. Everything Good Will Come by Sefi Atta is a coming of age novel about a girl growing into a woman in postcolonial Nigeria and England. Throughout the novel the main character, Enitan, is faced with various issues such as family troubles, rape, cheating boyfriends, and imprisonment. Beyond Enitan’s personal entanglements, the novel is a biting commentary on post-independence governments in Nigeria and tensions between Igbo (Biafrans), Yoruba, and Hausa ethnic groups after the Biafrian War. This book is a page Turner, it sheds light on how our society got here. #TuesdayTurner #Books #Biafran #Hausa #SefiAtta #AfricanWriter #African #Read #InstagramWriters #AllThingsBrightAndBooks #EverythingGoodWillCome #BubooxBooks #BubooxReads #Buboox #Fiction #authorsofinstagram #Authors #Review #BookTalk #BookReview #BookAnalysis #CelebratingAuthors

Beautifully captured in The Joys of Motherhood is Nnu Ego's struggle which is akin to that of many African women in search of a male child. While the story first seems to be about the gender, it soon grows past that with our main character struggling to raise her children with the expectations that she gets the satisfaction a mother derives from her kids. She gets into competition with a rival wife (a common happening in Africa) but is able to toss her out on the basis of superiority (still another common African mentality). Nnu Ego looks to be searching for love, especially in her Children but they have other ideas as they look to chart their lives thus leaving her an unhappy old woman at the time of her death. Despite people thinking she had 'won' with her children's obvious achievement, the reality is golden in Nnu's face. She's alone. This is a book worth turning as it lingers in the minds of the readers. The astute reflection of our current society makes the "Joys" of Motherhood a real myth that isn't going anytime soon. #TuesdayTurner #BubooxReads #TheJoysOfMotherhood #BookReview #Summary #Fiction #AfricanWriter #Africans #Writers #WritersWorld #AmWriting #writingcommunity #writerslife
