Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Powerful. That is the only word I can think of to describe this tome. I havent slept without thinking of this book since i finished reading it a few days ago. This book is a paradigm shifting book. My ideas of Nigeria, Africa, war and peace and colonialism were challenged and ultimately I feel like I have a lot of reading to do. I LOVE LOVE Chimamanda’s style of writing. Will be added to my personal library of African literature.
