Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


Gisela Hafezparast | 30 comments Again, just like most of her books, I have read this one quite a while ago, but it is really good and deals with really important issues. Highly recommend it.

Ella (ellamc) Perfect - I am headed to my bed to start this one tonight.

Edit - came back b/c I finished. Anyone else reading this?

No problem and if you get it late we can always continue the discussion next month :)

hmm i find her fiction very slow moving and boring. i did eventually finish this book but it took me a looooooong time. i kept reading because of all the many, MANY, many positive reviews. i much prefer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's nonfiction.
