Different cover.
"With effortless grace, celebrated author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie illuminates a seminal moment in modern African history: Biafra's impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in southeastern Nigeria during the late 1960s. We experience this tumultuous decade alongside five unforgettable characters: Ugwu, a thirteen-year-old houseboy who works for Odenigbo, a university professor full of revolutionary zeal; Olanna, the professor’s beautiful young mistress who has abandoned her life in Lagos for a dusty town and her lover’s charm; and Richard, a shy young Englishman infatuated with Olanna’s willful twin sister Kainene. Half of a Yellow Sun is a tremendously evocative novel of the promise, hope, and disappointment of the Biafran war."

I read this last year and liked it a lot.

Kiitos kirjasta.

Olen tämän joo tosiaan lukenut. Pitääpä katsoa tuleeko katseltua joitain kohtia uudestaan. On nimittäin yksi lempikirjailijani kirja.

Thanks for bringing this book to Tampere.
I brought another book ( Purple Hibiscus)of this Nigerian author which I find very good.

This book was on my wishlist, so I had to take it.
It will travel with me to France to be read there.
