Some books need to be read aloud so that the texture comes across in sound Chukwudi Iwuji did an excellent job of performing this book at times changing his intonations to suit the mood switching to Igbo or Yoruba accents paying attention to words and dialect and meaning in sound This was a joy to listen to on several three hour car journeys The past and present are beautifully intertwined in this story of brothers Told from the retrospect of one brother who has just spent a few years as a minor in prison this is a story of boys who come of age in an economically disadvantaged town in Nigeria Their parents are determined to raise their four oldest sons to be professors lawyers or doctors when a strange tragedy befalls their family At the center of this tragedy is a mentally unstable man whose mental health is the result of traumatic brain injury from a car accident a man who has no help from his community and one who commits unspeakable crimes Wrapped into this terrifying cocoon are the hopes and dreams of boys the darkness of the spirit world the tears from a mother s heart and a father s lost ambition This story of 1990s Nigeria which parallels the political climate of the time is spellbinding and searing visceral and unforgettable

forbidden to stop them poem by Mazisi Kunene the epigraph to The FishermenChigozie Obioma s talent as a powerful storyteller and gifted writer is evident from the very first pages He immediately and vividly evokes the legend behind a key character of the novel s plot the Omi Ala once a pure river a clean source of fish and drinking water and worshipped by the people of Akure like a god became besmirched by rumor condemned as evil by colonialists tooting Christianity then defiled tabooed and condemned as untouchable in 1995 when its waters became steeped in the blood soaked mystiue of a floating mutilated corpse The Fishermen set in Nigeria in the 1990 s when it was under the military rule of General Sani Abacha recounts the fall of the Agwu family Obioma skillfully mixes national unrest westernization and modernity to parallel the paths of his characters without turning the novel into a political diatribe Striking from the start Obioma s prose is hypnotic casting spells on the reader with the folklore of the land the myth and legends that contribute to the decline of the Agwus whose lives are ensnared by their customs and beliefs For Ikenna Boja Obembe and Benjamin the

fishermen of the mind Go getters Children who will dip their hands into rivers seas oceans of this life and become successful doctors pilots professors lawyers Prophet of DoomThe boys fates were already sealed at the forbidden Omi Ala river by an encounter with the town s madman because you know every town has one Abulu a soothsayer said to be possessed by the demon robed from head to foot in filth As he rose spryly to stand some of the filth rose with himhis back was caked with a dripping mess from some dead mango in a state of putrefactionI observed that he carried on his body a variety of odours the most noticeable of which was a faecal smell that wafted at me like a drone of flies when I drew closer to him This smell I thought might have been a result of his going for long without cleaning his anus after excretion Abulu calls Ikenna by name and foretells his murder at the hand of one of his brothers evoking the biblical Cain and Abel fratricide The gravity of the prophecy and belief in superstition run through the brothers veins like an infection morbidly threatening its host because even in the hearts of a loving band of brothers harbor the germs of distrust deception jealousy rage and violence Which one of them could be the future killer of his own brother Realizing that Abulu is the cause of conflict between the brothers a gruesome revenge is planned tragically furthering the break down of the family mosaic To look into the future one would see nothing it was like peeping into a person s earholeHistorical contextThe author also masterfully uses the Nigerian tradition of storytelling as a literary subversive blanket for socio political criticism cautious not to overwhelm the central themes it is subtle yet effective Obioma acknowledges that countries can
