Chinua Achebe's 'Things Fall Apart' Gets Broken Apart By Thug Notes

"No matter how much of a badass thug you are, killing your own son is WHACK."

That's just a piece of Sparky Sweets, PhD's plot summary on Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart." In this week's episode of Thug Notes, our literary gangster lays down some knowledge on Okonkwo, Unoka, Umofia and more.

He even offer some analysis on how Okonkwo has stayed representing.

"He's clockin' mad courage, goes hard for the hood, and don't let no candy-ass emotions get in his way," the PhD tell us.

Need some help for that English test this week? This is the place to be.
