summary ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Chigozie Obioma Chigozie Obioma ✓ 3 characters summary The Fishermen Ein großer Roman über die Schönheit und Abgründe Afrikas Benjamin und seine Brüder leben in der Nähe eines gefährlichen Flusses Als ihr Vater die Familie verlassen muss verstoßen sie gegen sein Verbot sich dem Gewässer zu nähern Die Fische die sie dort fangen sind Vorboten einer Tragödie Ein faszin. This 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 minutiae of life and the foibles of this family are understated yet powerful compelling the reader to fully imbibe the story The language is simple terse and simultaneously emotive multifaceted and highly efficacious The narrative which switches between adult Benjamin and Benjamin as a child feels cathartic brimmed with animalistic and esoteric allusions that serve as innocent child like signifiers of the imminent tragedy This book is everything and that I want in a novel it left my head in that brilliant post good book head fog for about a week and my only complaint would be that Obioma doesn t have another novel for me to read With humble nods to the great Achebe throughout the book Obioma looks set to follow the success of his literary forefather with this brilliant debut And he certainly gets my vote for the Man Booker

This 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 what makes The Fishermen truly remarkable is the author s ability to transform the most astounding events of youth into believable moments of personal growth familial pain and utter joy Aram Mrjoianfrom The Best Books We Read In June 2017 This book is astonishing When I decided to give The Fishermen a try I honestly didn t really expect to make it past the first few pages it s not the sort of plot I usually get excited about But then all of a sudden I was halfway through and could barely catch my breath There s just so much that s fascinating surprising and exhilarating about the book The narrator is an observant but not excessively precocious nine year old The story follows the disintegration of a family in small city Nigeria The focus is on a group of brothers whose brutal cleaving drives and haunts the plot The mood is both abstractly mythic and concretely physical The writing is perfectly tuned lyrical in places and bracing in others The characters shifting multilingualism Igbo Yoruba English plays an intriguing role The narrative structure has the past float to the surface of the present then recede then reappear And the whole thing is much much than the sum of these parts Derek AttigFrom The Best Books We Read In February

summary ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Chigozie Obioma Chigozie Obioma ✓ 3 characters summary The Fishermen Ierendes Familiendrama und eine sprachmächtige Fabel über das Schicksal Nigerias Von Afrikas neuem großem Erzähler Knisternd vor Lebendigkeit beladen von Vergänglichkeit schwindelerregend sowohl im Stil als auch in der elementaren Kraft seiner Geschichte Nur wenige Romane verdienen das Prädikat 'mythisc. I 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 heartbreaking and touching and I m sure a second read will prove both rewarding and revealing
