Politics submitted by kittenkat101 on June 24, 2011, 7:15pm Anthills of the Savannah deals with politics in a fictional country (based on Nigeria). It is very unlike Achebe's well-known work "Things Fall Apart" as there are fewer proverbs and as he incorporates a more traditionally western writing style. The first part of the book was difficult for me to get through as it dealt heavily with politics that I was unfamiliar with. However, the book becomes more intriguing when the "president" of the country begins turning on his childhood friends and others who insist on running a printing press. It is captivating and terrifying because what happens in this book is what can and has happened in our world.
