Of all Achebe's books, this has to be my least favorite, though there are sparse nuggets of pompous hilarity in the dialogue between the regime elites throughout. For me, the last quarter of the book makes the wait of this slow starter worthwhile. The character development is quite extensive for such a short novel, but that seems on par for most of Achebe's works. The book might be read with a bit too much of the air of arrogance from the characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book . It was very well written and researched as it seems to be based on a certain Nigerian military regime .
The reader read it beautifully and my only criticism, as I have with other books written by a Nigerian author and read by a non-Nigerian actor, is the many mispronunciation of words .
You should either get a native to record the book or research the pronunciation of the words , it makes for a more enjoyable experience
