This book sucks
I'm still reading the same book. I haven't gotten that much further since the last time I posted something on Youth Voices. But to me still, it is a very slow moving book. I'm really bored whenever I read it. It doesn't really make that much sense. Yes it may be getting a little better as I go along, but it isn't really captivating. All it is talking about now is how Okonkwo's son Nwoye has converted faiths when some white men came into their village and started preaching to them.
One part I found interesting was the part that stated, " Your gods are not alive and cannot do you any harm...They are pieces of wood and stone." This part kind of got me a little upset. Not at the book, but in general. Because, even though these people didn't believe in what you believed, you shouldn't just go around and insulting peoples culture and their religion. They may not be Christian, but they had a life before the Europeans came and basically took everything away from them. And that's really not right.
This book is still going nowhere but I will try and finish it. I'm going slow because I'm thinking to myslef, what if I get an even more boring book? I can't even fathom something being even more boring than this book.
