Dear Reader

Welcome to BookCrossing and thanks for being a part of World Book Night 2011, the largest book giveaway in history. 1,000,000 specially printed copies of 25 different books changed hands on March 5th 2011 and began their journey from reader to reader. This book is one of them. World Book Night has joined with BookCrossing to help track these books as they travel. You can be a part of that journey by making a comment in the book's journal here on BookCrossing. Your journal entry can say how you got the book, what you thought of it, your plans for it or whatever else you might like to add.

Will read this, as soon as I'm done reading the book I've started.

Started reading last night. Not my typical type of book, but so far enjoyable.
Only complaint so far is that there's a lot of Igbo scattered throughout with no translation.
I'm too curious and I want to know what all of it means!

9 out of 10

A very good book! The character's are multi-dimensioned and feel very real. You really find yourself caring about them, and recognizing different character traits of each one.
I also thought this was a great learning experience. I didn't know much of anything about the Nigerian Civil War when I picked this up, but I learned a lot in reading it.
I will be releasing this book on Friday.
