In the book Things Fall Apart Chinua Achebe is trying to give an explanation of what it is like to live in an African society The story is about a man named Okonkwo is a member of the Ibo tribe Achebe is telling the story of Okonkwo from his childhood till his death Achebe did a very good job of illustrating a traditional African society Achebes goal in writing this book was to educate people about some of the struggles people have and life in traditional African societiesHanson 25 The title Things Fall Apart is a good choice for a title of this book Achebe wants to give a picture of society how it is in true life not just how people talk about it or how people hear about the ways that are being lived in He wants to write in his book how the true meaning of how these people lived should be told Still a writer cant tell a story about someone with out having little contact or taking one perspective and writing about it the entire time It is very diverse in how the areas of living in this culture can be seen in every day life I believe that Achebe tackles the African writing in a sense that shows the interpretation of how everyone is so alike with all their problems all the troubles and the way each person lives their lives The similarities can be counted in bunches to show that the growing up process of this book and the respect that Okonkwo gave to his father and how he wanted to be better than the way that he lived his life The issues that are brought up in this book are the same as any other group of peoples issues are These similarities are just to show that the misrepresentations of how some people may believe that the African society is different in complete ways to their own
