Pretty awesome story with a premise something like The Ambassadorsif Strether were a callow college kid. It took awhile for me to get interested in Mongo Beti's Mission to Kala. But once I did, I enjoyed it. First of all, there were the instances of what I can only call cultural sensibilities. The story takes place in Cameroon. And there are many examples that will make the Western reader realize they are dealing with another culture (in another time) . . . . . like when a character in the story doesn't want to ask their female relative a tactless question, because "she is older". . . . . or when people gift each other with sheep and chickens. . . . or when the chief of the village acts as both judge and jury. I can imagine that these might be annoying to some readers. But for me they gave the story its wonderful flavor.
Next, there is the earnestness of the main character, Mezda, in books, Mission terminée By Mongo Beti This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Mission terminée, Essay By Mongo Beti.

Some kind of symbolic meaning no doubt but all that sorta stuff usually goes right over my thick head lol!!! Still, I liked the voice within this book & love (always) love looking into the ways & ideals of different cultures both past & present tense. æ Mission terminée õ its just a very interesting book as we get into the life Medza a young boy who has failed his exams. We see this journey as a journey of self discovery for Medza. He begins to view himself in a different light due to the respect he is shown in Kala. It also reflects the difference between Western education and Village education. It also n brings out strong characteristics of the colonia master. If one has not rea d this life changing novel, one should start now Dear JeanMarie Medza, I have just finished reading your humorous memoir, Mission to Kala, about a moment of decision, a fork in the road of your life. Although we often refer to these moments as points of decision, you have rightly expanded this point to illustrate the complexity of its architecture. Setting off as an adventurer of sorts into the upcountry, you drag us along to a village where we can experience a cavalcade of lazy, drunken, piggish characters set against the backdrop of shadowy creatures who have no voices but who perform the important tasks of working the fields and making the meals and caring for the children. Yes indeed, you set off to bring back the wayward wife of your kinsmen. How you hate her; how superior you feel your I can't believe Goodreads has Mongo Beti!!! OMG! An amazing commingofage story and rural life in Cameroon.
it was breathtaking. one of a kind and very captivating. l loved it. By far one of the best works I've ever read in my life. Reading Mongo Beti's novel taught me a lot about myself. From the interpersonal relationships between men and women I learned a completely different view of Africa from Beti as well. The novel takes place in Cameroon and is nothing like the traditional Nigerian literature you might have already read or are familiar with. I recommend this novel to everyoneit's funny, thought provoking and completely entertaining. I'm certain it will have as great a didactic affect on you as it has on me. It was like an African Catcher in the Rye. I actually wrote a mediocre paper exploring some of the similarities and I could detail some of them now. . .
both are written as a sort of reminiscence on the part of the speaker who feel sort of alienated both protagonists have clandestine appointments with women which don't end in any kind of illicit activity both protagonists have failed their exams both protagonist are a little cocky.
Really well written and quite enjoyable.
