sounds terrific: Epic, ambitious, and triumphantly realized, Half of a Yellow Sun is a remarkable novel about moral responsibility, about the end of colonialism, about ethnic allegiances, about class and race—and the ways in which love can complicate them all. Adichie brilliantly evokes the promise and the devastating disappointments that marked this time and place, bringing us one of the most powerful, dramatic, and intensely emotional pictures of modern Africa that we have ever had.

4 stars - I probably would never have picked up this book, but thanks to my book club, someone else picked it up. I really appreciated getting a bit of an inside view of Nigeria during the Biafran war. I gained a whole new appreciation for hunger...something beyond pictures and knowledge...a depth of understanding perhaps.
After seeing the author, Chimamanda Adichie, speak last spring in Portland, I had to read this book. Beautiful writing and well-developed characters wrapped into a historical fiction novel about the Biafran Civil War in Nigeria. Read it before the movie comes out!
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.
Half of a Yellow Sun is a novel by the Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Tells the story of two sisters during the Biafran War (1969-70)
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. Half of a Yellow Sun is a tremendously evocative novel of the promise, hope, and disappointment of the Biafran war.
On my reading list: NIGERIA // Half of a Yellow Sun: A Symbiotic Expression of Fiction and History // Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun is a powerful novel that addresses the emotional and personal consequences of the Nigerian Civil War, along with the historical atrocities that accompanied it. // Continue reading: http://theculturetrip.com/africa/nigeria/articles/half-of-a-yellow-sun-a-symbiotic-expression-of-fiction-and-history/

Ishmael Beah has written a memoir about his years as a child soldier in Sierra Leone. Such an eye-opening book. So sad.
'A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier' by Ishmael Beah: A human rights activist offers a firsthand account of war from the perspective of a former child soldier, detailing the violent civil war that wracked his native Sierra Leone and the government forces that transformed a gentle young boy into a killer as a member of the army.

One of my favorite books of all time. I cannot believe what so many children endure all around our world.
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah. This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s. Children have become soldiers of choice. In the more than fifty conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Ishmael Beah used to be one of them.
The true story of a young boy, Ishamel Beah, who is forced to become a boy soldier during a civil way in Sierra Leone. After the civil war is over, it leaves a strong affect on Ishmael Beah's personality and his future life itself.
Very detailed accounts of this child's life but worth the read. Ishmael Beah has written a memoir about his years as a child soldier in Sierra Leone. Orphaned by the civil war there, he was carrying an AK-47 by the age of 12. Pumped up by drugs, he was forced to kill or be killed.
Amazing book about a boy soldier in Sierra Leone. Very inspiring.
such a good book

What is the What. based on the life of Valentino Achak Deng by Dave Eggers. - this book is amazing! I love Dave Eggers
excellent melange of fiction and non-fiction giving a history of the civil war in Sudan and one of the Lost Boys' experiences
FEBRUARY 26, 2013 @ 1:30 PM. A biographical novel traces the story of Valentino Achak Deng, who as a boy was separated from his family when his village in southern Sudan was attacked, and became one of the estimated 17,000 "lost boys of Sudan" before relocating from a Kenyan refugee camp to Atlanta in 2001.
sad, but excellent book about the wars in Africa, specifically Sudan. Valentino Achak Deng was one of the "invisible children" that exist in many countries in Africa. Read this book if you want to hear from one of them yourself.
What is the What by Dave Eggers. Also watch the National Geographic film on the lost boys of Sudan.

1000 Splendid Suns reflects the violence and hope of Aghanistan from a woman’s point of view. The prose is poignantly and beautifully expressive, poetic in ways that touch the heart and the spirit. Khladed Hosseini, author of Kite Runner, captures war and personal conflict in ways that make history and news intimately personal. One of the best books I have read this year.

A Thousand Splendid Suns is a 2007 novel by Afghan author Khaled Hosseini. It is his second, following his bestselling 2003 debut, The Kite Runner. Both are AMAZING books
Khaled Hosseini is a genius. A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Kite Runner have to be the two most powerful novels I've ever laid eyes upon.
Book Club read... a story about an afghan girl born into shame and betrayed by her father. I think I even liked it more than the kite runner. khaled Hosseini is a talented writer, he really understands the characters and his readers interest in knowing more about the culture
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini -- St. Paul Juvenile PZ7.B69677 Boy 2006 Hosseini, author of the bestselling novel The Kite Runner, masterfully tells the story of two Afghani women, born 20 years apart, who lives are linked through tragic circumstances in war-torn Kabul.

Wonderful book! #books #khaledhosseini
Khaled Hosseini's novel, The Kite Runner, about Afghanistan pre-Soviet invasion is one of the most eye-opening and enlightening books I've ever read. The intense emotion and detail that is recounted by the young boy, Amir, about growing up in Kabul is shockingly remarkable. Admittedly, I didn't know much about Afghanistan's history before and after reading this book, I'll never look at Afghanistan in the stereotypical, western-world view again. It's heartwarming, encouraging and a sometimes devastating tale about two boys growing up in Kabul and gives an inside look at the class system.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (840L). Complete with in-text formative assessments from LightSail. #WeHaveDiverseBooks
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. A friendship between a wealthily boy and the son of his father's servant. Moving but would be even more difficult to read now than it was several years ago (when I read it), given that the book is set in Afganistan.
"The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini ~ One of my favorite books. Quite depressing but it keeps you on your toes & makes you want to read more.
The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini - The Kite Runner tells the story of Amir, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, whose closest friend is Hassan, his father's young Hazara servant. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of Afghanistan's monarchy through the Soviet invasion, the exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regime.
