Fellow novelist ANNE BERRY on CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel Half of a Yellow Sun is a stunning book throughout, set in 1960’s Nigeria as it erupts into the Biafran War of secession. There is so much I loved about this book, the crisp narration that never balks from taking the reader into the darkest corners of man’s nature, the relationship between the twin sisters Olanna and Kainene, the clashing of their different natures and the divergent paths they follow.
