I've just finished it, and loved it. I was just windering whether anyone else had read it? That's it really.

it's on my list of books to read! So it's good then?

fantastic - best book I've read so far this year

I've read it - it was brilliant and taught me about a period of history I had never heard of before so interesting too. brought up so many issues.

Ok, will read it as soon as I've finished "The Meaning of night" then. Might take a while though..quite a big book

Have any of you read Purple Hibiscus (her first book)? I'm thinking of having an amazon splurge

I haven't read any of her others but I intend to!

Sorry, that's not particularly helpful, is it?

depressing but very good. I've read purple hibiscus, it's shorter and flows better, but I think the characterisation is better in Half of a yellow sun

We read this in our book club recently, took me a while to get into but then really enjoyed it. Am going to read her first one now
