I had a lovely surprise today, a parcel arrived from my sister in law Ruth as part of World Book Night. She'd very kindly sent me Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a novel set in the 1960s based around Nigeria's Biafra war. I started it this afternoon, have read almost 100 pages and so far am loving it. I haven't read a lot of literature from Africa, although I did enjoy Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. This book could seriously make me want to read more. So thank you Ruth!
