YMMV / Things Fall Apart


  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Okonkwo is meant to come off as a tragic character, but many readers found his Jerkass behavior made him too unlikable to sympathize with, so this was lost to them.
    • Most likely intentional as the author is depicting both the good and bad aspects of Igbo culture as embodied in Okonkwo.
