Publisher's Summary

The story of a man whose foreign education has separated him from his African roots and made him parts of a ruling elite whose corruption he finds repugnant. More than 30 years after it was first written, this novel remains a brilliant statement on the challenges still facing African society.
Obi Okonkwo is an idealistic young man who returns to Nigeria for a job in the civil service following an education in the UK. Managing to resist the bribes that are offered to him, he falls in love with an unsuitable girl and sinks into emotional and financial turmoil. The lure of easy money becomes harder to refuse, and Obi becomes caught in a trap he cannot escape.

No longer at ease

I would recommend this book however I am always thrown off by the narrator using an accent that comes off as Jamaican rather than West African when he reads the lines with pidgin english. I understand he can't be perfect but hmmm😅

Worth reading

Narrator tried different characters but sounded strange at times. A lot of Nigerian culture inside. Shines an inside light on the evolution of corruption in a man's life
