What Should I Read Next?

6 Reasons Why It Is Your Next Book

  1. Were you ever interested in knowing the life of tribal people in Africa? It’s a good book to start with as it will give you lots of insights about the African Igbo clan.

  2. It will help you in exploring the pre-colonial life in Nigeria; and how it was affected when the western government and beliefs entered there.

  3. This is one of the first African novels that was written in English and received critical global acclaim..

  4. It will show you an African point of view about the story of the colonization of the Igbo clan.

  5. It will help in clearing the misconception that pre-colonial African culture had been savage and primitive before colonization. The book will tell you that they had religion, a government, monetary system, traditions, and a fully functioning judicial system.

  6. Before this book, most of the novels about Africa were written by European authors who portrayed them as savages who needed western culture; but this was the first book that was written by an African giving a deeper knowledge about their culture from the point of view of a local and not an outsider.

We believe in the thing that writing is a form of art that can’t be judged or rated. Every book has got something to tell and you will definitely learn something in the end even if you think the book is not good enough. Just like not all people like the same colour, similarly, not all people can like the same book. Every book has a different set of readers and we help to reach the right book to the right group by our unique reviewing style. That’s why instead of giving ratings, critical review or any other type of negative feedback; we share the things you will learn from any particular book. If it is something that resonates with what you are looking for in a book, you have found your next read!!! We also try to give the review in the simplest manner, so that we can encourage even the nonreaders to join the group.
