it was amazing
Recommended for: Anyone interested in Africa
Read in July, 2007

This was quite possible the most moving book I have read this year. The story of a family and their friends in Nigeria during the Biafran War. This book reveals life in middle class Nigeria and gives an insight into the terrible internal struggles that Nigeria endured in the 1960's. At the same time it recounts the life and loves of twin sisters and how they reconcile years of differences when the tribulations of the war affect their lives so deeply. A really moving tale that carries you along so that you feel you know these people well. A story filled with love and humour but also loss and despair. A gripping read.
