The Fishermen summary Ñ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF 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
