Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ✓ 7 characters Isited daily by his parents and younger sister Nnamabia nevertheless begins a steady decline More than anything he fears being taken to Cell One where unruly prisoners are sometimes beaten to death by poli. Nnamabia a total new person“Cell One” is a fictional short story written in 2007 by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s stories are very meaningful as she creatively chooses amazing vocabularies that always grab the reader’s attention I’ve checked out her written works and couldn't agree on how catchy her stories and novels are which made it compelling for me to read of hers “Cell One” is written in order to thoroughly describe the reality in prisons the blindness of parents the kind of love and care between siblings as well as the injustice and justice system in Nigeria This short story explains about the unpleasant life of the Nnamabia the main character in the narrator’s eye and how the lives of the prisoners in the cell changed the main character’s point of view about society Nnamabia a teenage boy with a fair complexion and large eyes with the perfectly cured mouths was influenced by others to get involved in antisocial behavior that led him to being caught and put in prison The beginning of the story vividly introduces the behavior of the main character as the narrator opens to a scene where the main character robs his own house and steals his mom’s jewels selling it for money That made me wonder why Nnamabia is risking his own life and could get himself in trouble instead of asking his mom for money if he really needed it Later in the story the narrator describes her brother’s daily lives when he was young—like watching “Sesame Street '' or eating cornflakes for breakfast like a normal kid Unfortunately as he grew up he turned out to be acting shamelessly by robbing other people’s houses and stealing valuable items like TVs and VCRs This clearly shows how the main character has developed from a normal child to having this kind of behavior in his teenage yearsAfter Nnamabia was arrested he learned the lives of prisoners in the cell and how some of them were treated differently from others The author mentioned an old man who was cruelly mistreated in prison and this really REALLY grabs my attention because this is literally the main point of this whole short story—how just only a few people have the ability to make a person understand the extent of injustice in the prison system and also talks about the political system in hishers country At the end Nnamabia ironically stood up for the old man and this shows how he is willing to support the old man and be counted in order to stop this kind of behaviorFrom all this I really look forward to reading other works from Chimamanda since her stories are so meaningful and at the same time give reality facts about the world we live in today
