I have read a couple of his books in school.

I haven't read any of his novels, but I very much admire the poem 'Vultures'

I had to read Things Fall Apart at three very different times in my life: high school, a non western lit class in college, and one of my capstone seminars in college. My appreciation for the book increased each time.
I've also read his criticism of Heart of Darkness a few times, and it's very good.

I have read his book Anthills Of Savannah. Its a very good book portraying neocolonialism in Africa which is something annoying since it's something truly happening. When reading it I was like this book should be read in high school so that people should vote wisely since some people may not have a chance to go to higher level of education so as to read it since many people don't have the interest of reading novels and this is the knowledge that they need.

I have read several of his books. My first was "The Concubine". He is a contemporary of the famous Kenyan author Ngugi wa Thiong'o.
