5.0 out of 5 stars A GRIPPING SAGA, 16 Feb. 2006
Ibadan:the Penkelemes Years is an autobiography that gripped me from its first page to the very end. Wole Soyinka strikes me as a master carver of the English Language; he simply sculpts and carves the language with skills I've not witnessed elsewhere. It's a remarkable memoir, colourful in its splendour of retrospection, gripping in its lush narrative and peculiar even in its evocative title. One of the finest memiors I've come across.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC, 16 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Arrow of God (Paperback)
Achebe's Arrow of God is no doubt the best novel written by an African and one of the best novels in the world. It gives me an inferiority complex and makes me believe there are writers and there are talented writers. Achebe is a talented writer. He's a god. And his pen is an arrow.
