    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDFOh how I loved the end of this book It made my heart soarReally really well done debut novel that is worthy of the Man Booker shortlisting It is a family drama with overtones of a Greek tragedy The story is narrated by Ben both as a 10 year old child and an adult man looking back Ben is the 4th son of a tightly knit Nigerian family that begins to unravel when the disciplinarian father takes a job at the Nigerian Central Bank in another city Without the father's watchful eyes on them the four oldest boys decide they are going to become fishermen For six weeks the brothers and their friends tramp down to the foul forbidden Omi Ala river to fish and catch tadpoles One fateful day at the river the brothers' paths cross with Abulu the Prophet a local madman Abulu makes a prophecy that the oldest son Ikenna will be brutally killed by a fisherman which Ikenna interprets to be one of his own brothers With mythic overtones the fami

    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDFThis review has been long overdue I read The Fishermen some time ago following a brilliant review by the African Book Addict before the Booker long list was announced and I jumped right into the novel with no inkling that it would fast become one of my favourite books of the yearWritten from the perspective of younger brother Benjamin the novel follows the lives of four Nigerian brothers from a close knit family their prophetic encounter with a madman and the devastating effect that one moment can generate This notion of external forces wreaking havoc and destroying the great potential of the family is perhaps an allegory for Nigeria the resource rich nation whose own story could be very different were it not for the ravages of foreign colonialism and internal corruption But I digress Whilst there is indeed an undercurrent of political discontent in the story it is buried deep beneath a beautiful engaging and intimate portrayal of a family in crisis Obioma’s evocation of the

    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDFOh yeah definitely a must read This was good good Igbo village storytelling If anyone's work should be compared to Chinua Achebe it's this one But it's also got its own uniue voice There were times when it meandered a bit too much for my taste; sometimes there were details that felt included in order to pull the voice away from the point of view of a ten year old these felt heavy handed and often out of place but these moments didn't keep me from continuing It's not a perfect novel there is no such thing as a perfect novel but it's a great first novel and it's the type of story that I love Plus I love a good tragedy ; Applause

    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDF 'm just floored right now This is a dark haunting tragic heart wrenching BUT amazing story of 4 brothers and their family and a madman Abulu Right when you think things get better and the craziness plateaus something pops up I feel like I knowknew Ikenna Boja Obembe and Ben their love and brotherhood are so dear to me I don't know why Chigozie Obioma wrote about these boys in such a tender way that had me ALLLLL in my feelings I felt alllll types of feelings reading this book every word counts Obioma's use of metaphors made this story too palpable References to 'Things Fall Apart' in this book alongside other contemporary works and worldly happenings made this all the a satisfying read I'm SUPER proud of this autho

    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDFI loved this story from the start The first uarter of the novel had me chuckling and nodding my head in recognition at the family dynamics especially when it comes to strict Education Education parents Chigozie's imagery and metaphors are superb and something in the prose and unfolding of events gives the story a magical realism bent though everything is plausible Really the story is presented as a fable with nearly each chapter named after an animal and beginning with who that animal represents At the same time the overall feel is fresh and modern THE FISHERMEN is humorous and hear

    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDFSome books need to be read aloud so that the texture comes across in sound Chukwudi Iwuji did an excellent job of performing this book at times changing his intonations to suit the mood switching to Igbo or Yoruba accents paying attention to words and dialect and meaning in sound This was a joy to listen to on several three hour car journeys The past and present are beautifully intertwined in this story of brothers Told from the retrospect of one brother who has just spent a few years as a mino

    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDFThis book has been on my reading list for a solid two years and I’m thrilled I finally picked it up The Fishermen captures the complex dynamics of brotherhood at a young age in a way that harbors both natural sentimentality and literary gravitas Narrated by Ben a nine year old Nigerian boy with four brothers living in a rural town Obioma’s novel is adeptly attuned to how enormous and wondrous everything seems during childhood but wha

    Paperback Ï The Fishermen MOBI Ì fishermen mobile, The Fishermen PDF The Fishermen tells the story of a family in ruins after a madman's prophesy drives one brother to be plagued with fear Obioma utilizes a lot of mythological and folkloric story telling techniues especially drawing on the natural world It reads much like a parable and I can't help but think that certain parts especially the title are direct biblical allusionsI'll admit I wasn't a big fan of the first half of this story It seems disjointed and focused on setting up the atmosphere of the boys' Nigerian hometown Akure along with the transformation their family undergoes But about halfway through something happens that triggers the events to come as well as brings together some elements from the beginning and that propelled me to read the rest of the novel with fervor I think Obioma like Achebe and Adichie has a strong voice and important things to say As his debut novel The Fishermen shows the literary prowess of someone far beyond his years I was moved by the brotherhood these boys sha
