Beschreibung

With effortless grace, celebrated author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie illuminates a seminal moment in modern African history: Biafra's impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in southeastern Nigeria during the late 1960s. We experience this tumultuous decade alongside five unforgettable characters: Ugwu, a thirteen-year-old houseboy who works for Odenigbo, a university professor full of revolutionary zeal; Olanna, the professor's beautiful young mistress who has abandoned her life in Lagos for a dusty town and her lover's charm; and Richard, a shy young Englishman infatuated with Olanna's willful twin sister Kainene. Half of a Yellow Sun is a tremendously evocative novel of the promise, hope, and disappointment of the Biafran war.

Absolutely stunning and heartbreaking

When I started reading this book, I had absolutely no idea what it would be about. I had read all other books by Adichie and loved every single one of them, so I figured this would be no different.

When I started reading this book, I had absolutely no idea what it would be about. I had read all other books by Adichie and loved every single one of them, so I figured this would be no different. So when the symbol of the "half of a yellow sun" was finally mentioned in the book and revealed the central theme of the story, namely Biafra's war for independence, I was completely surprised and unprepared. The book covers two main timelines: the early sixties before the war and the late sixties when the war starts and ultimately ends. Each timeline manages to generate its own importance through the depth and personal struggles of the characters. And it is in part only because of the acute description of life before the war, that it becomes so painfully obvious what was and is lost during the war. Through her fantastic story-telling abilities, Adichie creates characters that resonate not only because they are likeable, but because they are inherently human. This book is brilliant from the very first to the very last page and will surely occupy my mind for a long time.

Die Sechziger Jahre in Nigeria - erlebt von zwei ungleichen Schwestern. In der Oberschicht behütet aufgewachsen, erleben sie den Biafra-Krieg und die Pogrome gegen ihre Volksgruppe.
