Lot of time reading this week. I’m going to worry about the writing after I finish the book but i've been marking some quotes. I know yesterday we made the web page yesterday. The main social issue that pushed Okonkwo is that he does not want to be like his father. I think he focused too much on this and it clouds his judgment which will lead to his downfall. He is driven by fears looking weak so he beats his wives and children and kills Ikemefuna even after being told not to be the one that kills him, afraid his sons will be weak and lazy so he pushes them hard in the field and shows them no affection, afraid of failure.
I have been listening to the book on and off on youtube. Listening to the audiobook I have found is very helpful with the difficult names and words. It is also really great because it helps me stay focused on the book so I do not get distracted and read the same sentence five times. I can also multitask and listen to it in interior design while picking out fabrics, then when I hear a good quote I pause it and look it up in the book and take a snapshot of it.
