The Incorruptible Judge - Ola Rotimi
The Concubine - Elechi Amadi
Arrow of God - Chinua Achebe
Animal Farm - George Orwell
The Village boy


This is Our Chance - James Ene Henshaw

I remember one funny character - Bambulu with his big big grammar.

Are you sure Prof Ola Rotimi wrote Incorruptible Judge? I think one Adegoke wrote the book.

This was the first ever novel i read on my own without being told to do so by any teacher or adult. The book change my reading life forever, It helped widened up my imagination. I got into the book that I skipped meals most times


I burrowed the book playfully from my friend Ismaila and till date i never returned it grin

Those books were the best, man! I learnt reading with Ralia, the sugar girl. Then after, I read every book I came across. I read the Dark Child by C. M Laye in primary school. King Solomon's Mines is one book I'll never forget. If there is anyway I'd get it, someone, please, tell me.

But all sha, I thank my mom. God bless her. She showed me all. Btw, I'm just 19. Not everyone of this generation isn't sound.

I thought about "Sizwe Bansi Is Dead" but it is not a Nigerian book. I have read it back to back and I enjoyed it. Especially, the case of Dhlamini that owns a funeral parlour wink
