    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.

    Story

    I was enthralled by the complex characters and quickly drawn into their lives and how the war affected them before it began, during and after. How I had quickly fallen in love with the strong headed sister who becomes my hero.
    I have read this book twice and will happily read it again. From an educational point of view I also learnt a lot about a war I heard of but knew little about.
    A great, great read narrated by the wonderful Robin Miles

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    Story

    Predictable from the very first chapter and when I crawled my way to the end clutching the steering wheel praying for release, guess what? It was predictable! There seems to be a formula for writing and no more thinking outside the box - A shame really.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    Is it truly possible to be bored to death whilst driving to work listening to a story? Yes! The monotone ramblings in my ears by the narrator Kirby who droned on and on was just too much! I had to call it quits.

    Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world.

    Story

    Everyone, especially Africans should read this book to understand the evils of intolerance as we all move forward in life. We should preach the word that to deny another human being equal rights just because we do like or understand them is pure evilness at its height. The Nazi’s intolerance towards Jews, The Africana’s intolerance towards Africans, the so called Christians intolerance towards gays and so on and so forth. A great book from a great man and leader in the struggle for equality for ALL South Africans.
