    A book that, in my opinion, everyone should read. Educational, emotional and incredibly well written. "Would miss dinner to keep reading-good".

    Adichie opened a new wold of literature to me. 'Half of a Yellow Sun' is a story that examines in detail a turbulent time in postcolonial Nigeria, and yet Adichie finds a way of transcending history, showing with prodigious skill the human experience in its full, tragic, and formidable nature. Studying it for my exams has been a pleasure, and a journey, and a richness, and I am forever grateful to Ms. Adichie for the experience her novel gave me, and the curiosity it stirred.

Heartbreaking, funny, exquisitely written and, without doubt, a literary masterpiece and a classic Daily Mail Stunning. This novel is an immense achievement Observer A landmark novel. Adichie brings to history a lucid intelligence and compassion, and a heartfelt plea for memory Guardian 'Vividly written, thrumming with life a remarkable novel. In its compassionate intelligence as in its capacity for intimate portraiture, this novel is a worthy successor to such twentieth-century classics as Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart and V. S. Naipaul's A Bend in the River' Joyce Carol Oates 'Here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers Chinua Achebe The character burrow into your marrow and mind, and you come to care for them deeply something that is all too rare Daily Telegraph A sane and compassionate new voice in an often strident world Financial Times Adichie uses language with relish. She infuses her English with a robust poetry Helen Dunmore, The Times A powerful account of the Biafran War, horrific and tender in equal measure Sunday Telegraph 'Absolutely awesome. One of the best books I've ever read' Judy Finnigan I wasted the last fifty pages, reading them far too greedily and fast, because I couldnt bear to let go magnificent Margaret Forster
