Reviews of : An Orchestra of Minorities by Chigozie Obioma PDF Book
Inside this Book – The book fights back by setting its action in the world of traditional Igbo culture, a world most of its readers will know nothing about. I certainly didn’t. Characters often speak for a sentence or two in Igbo or pidgin, to remind the reader that if you’re an Igbo whose family hasn’t managed to find the money to send you to university, this is what it’s like: you hear words, perhaps important words, in the White man’s language, and you don’t understand them. Most memorably, the narrator is the central character’s chi. What is a chi? We don’t have this concept in our spiritual universe. It is not a Christian soul or guardian angel, and it is not a Hindu atman. It is a little bit like all of these, but only a little bit. Really it is something different, and even after reading the book I have only a very partial understanding of what a chi is.
Inside this book –An Orchestra of Minorities PDF Book by Chigozie Obioma – If the prey do not produce their version of the tale, the predators will always be the heroes in the story of the hunt, says the quotation which opens this unusual and beautiful novel; and indeed, we come to understand that the “minorities” in its title are the prey, so often voiceless, who are now precariously recovering their ability to bear witness. I like this attitude. I like to hear about people who have been trampled on by history but fought back. Recently, I have read Sofi Oksanen’s When the Doves Disappeared, which tells us about the Estonians, and I have read Romain Gary’s La danse de Gengis Cohn, which tells us about the Polish Jews.
