Our book review today comes from one of our Outreach Officers.
This book is set in a world I don’t know, during an event I’d barely heard of, on a continent I’ve never been to. But these barriers are irrelevant as Adichie’s excellent prose takes me to Nigeria, and I’m immersed in the lives of village boy Ugwu, Chief Ozobia’s daughter Olanna, and English writer Richard.
Narrated through her characters, their stories interwoven, Adichie was able to help me understand what it is to be a Nigerian during times of change, struggle and upheaval.
A beautifully written book, with empathy and love, epic in scope, personal in delivery, I really enjoyed it.
