Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Book Summary:

A masterly, haunting new novel from a writer heralded by The Washington Post Book World as “the 21st-century daughter of Chinua Achebe,” Half of a Yellow Sun re-creates a seminal moment in modern African history: Biafra’s impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in Nigeria in the 1960s, and the chilling violence that followed.             With astonishing empathy and the effortless grace of a natural storyteller, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie weaves together the lives of three characters swept up in the turbulence of the decade. Thirteen-year-old Ugwu is employed as a houseboy for a university professor full of revolutionary zeal. Olanna is the professor’s beautiful mistress, who has abandoned her life of privilege in Lagos for a dusty university town and the charisma of her new lover. And Richard is a shy young Englishman in thrall to Olanna’s twin sister, an enigmatic figure who refuses to belong to anyone. As Nigerian troops advance and the three must run for their lives, their ideals are severely tested, as are their loyalties to one another.                       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.

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Book Summary:

With her award-winning debut novel, Purple Hibiscus, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was heralded by the Washington Post Book World as the “21st century daughter” of Chinua Achebe. Now, in her masterly, haunting new novel, she recreates a seminal moment in modern African history: Biafra’s impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in Nigeria during the 1960s. With the effortless grace of a natural storyteller, Adichie weaves together the lives of five characters caught up in the extraordinary tumult of the decade. Fifteen-year-old Ugwu is houseboy to Odenigbo, a university professor who sends him to school, and in whose living room Ugwu hears voices full of revolutionary zeal. Odenigbo’s beautiful mistress, Olanna, a sociology teacher, is running away from her parents’ world of wealth and excess; Kainene, her urbane twin, is taking over their father’s business; and Kainene’s English lover, Richard, forms a bridge between their two worlds. As we follow these intertwined lives through a military coup, the Biafran secession and the subsequent war, Adichie brilliantly evokes the promise, and intimately, the devastating disappointments that marked this time and place.Epic, ambitious and triumphantly realized, Half of a Yellow Sun is a more powerful, dramatic and intensely emotional picture of modern Africa than any we have had before.From the Hardcover edition.

If you are looking for a mytho-historic resolution to the various Nigerian socio-political and economic problems, this book will serve as a well of knowledge to you as it recognizes the abiku essence of the Nigerian nation. If you are interested in knowing how Nigeria gets to this crossroad of (Abikuness)uncertainty, you need to study this book for it will educate you from the lens of mytho-historic, how and when! Do you know the various mythological factors, like the Aryan Myth and Volk that sustain the Germans during the 2nd World War, which sustain the Nigerian Biafran Civil War? This book identifies those mythological factors and how it sustains the Nigerian/Biafran Civil War. The book is in support of Chimamanda in the Author’s Note to Half of A Yellow Sun where she comments on the ugliness of war. In her words, ‘agha ajoka’ –– ‘war is very ugly’––, and if it is so, Nigerians, nay, the world should try their best possible to prevent it. The recent Boko-Haram crises in Nigeria is a case point. It is time to look for a mytho-historic solution.
