Half of a Yellow Sun
Fri frakt inom Sverige över 149 kr för privatpersoner.
Louise Åkergren, 12 maj 2013
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.

Recensioner i media
'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 'I look with awe and envy at this young woman from Africa who is recording the history of her country. She is fortunate - and we, her readers, are even luckier.' Edmund White 'Absolutely awesome. One of the best books I've ever read.' Judy Finnigan '[Deserves] a place alongside such works as Pat Barker's "Regeneration" trilogy and Helen Dunmore's depiction of the Leningrad blockade, "The Siege".' Guardian
