    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"
    "Brilliant narration of a captivating story"

    If you could sum up Half of a Yellow Sun in three words, what would they be?

    History comes alive!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I quickly became attached to the complex characters of this novel. I felt I was an intimate witness to their life struggles, traumas and transformations. In the process, I learned about a painful chapter in the history of Biafra/Nigeria. At the centre, the story is about the writing of a book, which examines the complicity of the world community in these terrible events and suggests that personal relationships are intricately tied to international relations.


    What does Robin Miles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Robin Miles performed the characters accents beautifully.


    Any additional comments?

    Chimananda Ngozi Adichi has written a masterful work of historical fiction. I look forward to reading more of her novels.
