Okonkwo's friend celebrates his daughter
Recently I read pages 105 -129 in Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe,and I like this book because they are having a festival party at Okonkwo's friend Obierika is celebrating his daughter's Uri. Means the Part of the betrothal ceremony when the dowry is paid.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: "The only course was opened ti Okonkwo was to flee from the clan." I think this is sad because Okonkwo and his family were no longer allowed in the village the lived before. How can the do that because Okonkwo was the strongest warrior alive in nine villages. I dont like this part of the book.
Another line that I liked was: "The musicians with their wood, clay and metal instrument went from song to song." This stood out for me because this is the funny part I found in the entire book. because the all musicians were gay and they sang the latest song in the village.
This section of the book reminds me of something in the news. What happened was when a women died she gave her all property to her dog. Even though she had kids. In the book the oldest man in village dies and he was rich. But he did not have any kids to give away his property.
What's probably going to happen next is Okonkwo will go to his mother's land and will return to his village after seven years. he will settle himself in him mother's village for seven years.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because now I am up to part two in the book. I want to see if Okonkwo the greatest warrior of all villages can actually return to his own village where he started his life.
