    "I THOUGHT THIS BOOK WOULD BE INTERESTING TO READ BECAUSE IT IS A STORY BASED IN AFRICA AND IT MIXES AFRICAN BELIEFS INTO THE STORY LINE. ONE PRO ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THAT IT CONTAINS SIZZLING SEXUAL SITUATIONS BETWEEN ITS CHARACTERS. ONE CON IS THE FACT THAT IT IS NOT GOOD READING MATERIAL .THIS STORIES SOUNDS BETTER AS AN AUDIO BOOK."

    ""Half of a Yellow Sun" is an excellent story featuring a Safari and modern African culture. I absolutely loved the vivid setting and riveting plot as these Biafran natives attempt to create their own republic."

    "This was an interesting read I enjoyed. The changes in the characters and in the environment were such a compelling read I didn't want to put it down. I felt like I could relate to many aspects of the characters so much. I also appreciated the author's writing style. It made it easy to follow. "

    "I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it was, so I was pleasantly surprised. I never realized how hard some of these people fought to keep everything they held dear. "

    "I love other works by this author so decided to check this one out. The subject matter is unique, but I have to admit it is quite long and my patience was wearing thin. There were quite a number of character with motivations that didn't quite gel."

    "This is an interesting story about the biafrans( The igbos in Nigeria) trying to seperate from Nigeria, I strongly recommend it."

    "This book is a very great read. It is a historical fiction, and its details are accurate enough that you could believe it took place when it did. It tells the story of five people trying to keep their nation, the now-defunct Republic of Biafra, alive. The story of survival and perseverance is told well here and you feel for the people involved. Well-written, this book was very enjoyable."

    "Every single African achievement relates to political rights, if not athletics. There are no books celebrating true achievements by blacks, because there are none. There are no black inventions or innovations. There is just an endless fight."

    "Half of a yellow sun is a great book from the african writers series. It's written by Chimamanda and almost an instant classic I figure."

    "I try to find books by every race when I am reading. I like to have a variety of everything. I think the best one I have come across that was written by a black author was Half of a Yellow Sun. It has a really interesting story and really kept me reading more and more even when I needed to put it down. "

    "A poignant fictional work that exposes the reader to many of the themes of colonialism. One of the primary criticisms of using this book in a college setting is that it is fictional."
