Anthills of the Savannah

Although I am not a fiction reader, Chinua Achebe's writings always hold my interest and "Anthills" was no different. His in depth description and flawless development of characters in this book makes them very easy to understand and one can almost hear them talking in their thick West African accents as you read the book. The book flows seamlessly with no slow or lagging periods. It is constantly involvoing all of the characters and their intricacies. I read it in a day and a half and literally could not put it always, this is an excellent work by Mr. Achebe.
