    Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Adichie’s brilliant historical novel follows the fortunes of five characters living through the tumultuous 1960s—a time when the Biafran-Nigerian War raged in southern Africa.

    Alla says: "Horrifyingly human - mandatory reading"
    "Beautiful and sad story"

    Story

    This beautiful and sad book provided me with an insight into the Biafran/Nigeran war that I was previously ignorant of. The narrator is wonderful - I have listened to many books by her and she is consistantly excellant.

    The characters are developed slowly but gradually you gain an insight into their personalities and emotions. The descriptions of the war are heart rendering. I became very attached to the main characters and actually cried at the end of the book.

    Highly recommended
