Fabulous read

"My father ended his many stories with words which in literal translation is 'war is very ugly', says Adichie. She ends her Author's Note at the end of the book with 'May we never forget.' Set during the Nigeria Biafra War 1967-70, Half of a Yellow Sun is a powerful story told well. Great research, great attention to detail, well etched out characters.

genius in the making...

Its incomparable joy that one gets out of reading adichie, to look on astounded at the seemingly overnight growth of the writer from purple hibiscus to a greater classic- Half of a yellow sun.
The narrative unfurls through 3 major characters, a technique impeccably used to great effect. A great novel, a most interesting record of a culture, its people and of a turbulent period, in words old, newly discovered by Adichie.

Beautiful!

Half of a Yellow Sun is a beautifully written book that's difficult to put down. Love how the characters are so thoughtfully detailed and the ease with which Adichie draws contrasts between their lives, right through the book.
Also, for someone curious about political history in Africa (Nigeria in this case), this book is a must read.

Making sense of it all

How little we know about Africa, let alone are Nigeria.

This book sweeps the readers across the war torn nation, with all the conflicts, places, seasons and people. Author's style is gripping and there is lot to read between the lines.

A must read for anyone interested in knowing about the Dark Continent.
