Feature & Follow Friday #25: Book I didn't like & Why

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

General rules to Feature & Follow Friday:
1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts and any one else you want to follow on the list
2. Follow our Featured Bloggers (This week is My Thoughts...Literally)
3. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"

This Week's Question: 

 Question of the Week: Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it (as nicely and respectfully as possible)

Hmm, I've so far mainly read classics and romance novels, so I'll pick a classic because many of us are probably familiar with the problems that can make a bad romance novel.

I did not particularly like Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. The ending of the novel sets up the protagonist Okonkwo as a tragic hero, but his being modeled after the Greek tragic hero seems too presumptuous for his character flaws, hubris and blindness, and I don't like any protagonist who beats his wife (4th one even) half to death for being late! Manliness is overrated on him. 
I would love followers on GFC, email,  NetworkedBlogs and ->Follow on Bloglovin


  1. I almost picked a classic this week too.. the Once and Future King. I ended up not picking that one though because a lot of people love it soooo.... I picked something else!

    Angela's Anxious Life

  2. Hopping through. That's one of the books that I feel like I should read. IT was never assigned to me in school.

  3. Hopping over! I've never heard of the book, though, but I guess I can totally understand why you disliked it!
