The Fishermen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Fishermen free pdf In a small town in western Nigeria, four young brothers - the youngest is nine, the oldest fifteen - use their strict father's absence from home to go fishing at a forbidden local river. They encounter a dangerous local madman who predicts that the oldest brother will be killed by another. This prophesy breaks their strong bond, and unleashes a tragic chain of events of almost mythic proportions. Passionate and bold, The Fishermen is a breathtakingly beautiful novel, firmly rooted in the best of African storytelling. With this powerful debut, Chigozie Obioma emerges as one of the most original new voices in world literature. 'Obioma writes with gorgeous restraint reminiscent of the intricate prose in a Tolstoy novella. Every sentence delivers a precise and heartfelt blow. Hardly anyone writing today is delivering this level of intricacy, lyricism and control. Add to that, the urgency and importance of his message. It just doesn't get better than this. Get used to the name: Obioma is here to stay.' Alexandra Fuller, award-winning author of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight 'Obioma's remarkable fiction is at once urgently, vividly immediate, yet simultaneously charged with the elemental power of myth.' Peter Ho Davies, author of The Welsh Girl 'Awesome in the true sense of the word: crackling with life, freighted with death, vertiginous both in its style and in the elemental power of its story. Few novels deserve to be called 'mythic', but Chigozie Obioma's The Fishermen is certainly one of them. A truly magnificent debut.' Eleanor Catton, Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Luminaries 'Myth, madness and magic - this is an urgent book full of blood and beauty.' Omar Musa, author of Here Come the Dogs
