The sweeping new novel from the author of Purple Hibiscus.This sweeping new novel from the author of Purple Hibiscus is set in Nigeria in the 1960s, at the time of a vicious civil war in which a million people died, and thousands were massacred in cold blood.The three main characters in the novel get swept up in the violence during these turbulent years. One is a young boy from a poor village who is employed at a university lecturer's house. The other is a young middle-class woman, Olanna, who has to confront the reality of the massacre of her relatives. And the other is a white man, a writer who lives in Nigeria for no clear reason, and who falls in love with Olanna's sister, a remote and enigmatic character.As these people's lives intersect, they have to question their own responses to the unfolding political events. This extraordinary novel is about Africa in a wider sense: about moral responsibility, about the end of colonialism, about ethnic and tribal allegiances, about class and race; and the ways in which love can complicate all of these things.Chimanda Ngozi Adichie's first novel, Purple Hibiscus, was shortlisted for the Orange Prize and longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2004.… (mais)

Gods, this was boring. I'm about halfway through and I can't bring myself to care about anything that's going on - there is a grand total of zero interesting characters and at this point I couldn't care less which way the civil war is going. The characters are detestable: an armchair revolutionary, a guy who lives off his aunt then off his girlfriend then off his mistress, flat proto-warlords, cliche rich people commenting about propriety, etc. I should have cut my losses way back.

After a long introduction to the characters and their situations we are taken through the succession of Biafra from Nigeria, the war, and some weeks after the conflict has ended. I can feel that this book may well be important and it does a good job of creating it people and depicting their lives and setting but I just didn't care much about Olanna and her absorption with the singularly unimpressive Odenigbo, or Richard and his abject absorption with the much more interesting Kainene who we see only through others. Ugwu is more intriguing in outline and arch but I still could only connect with his story at a few moments. ( )

"El món va callar mentre nosaltres moríem" La història de la guerra del Biafra. Els personatges són: dues germanes bessones d'una família molt rica que vivia a Lagos, l'intel·lectual, professor de matemàtiques a la Universitat de Nsukka, un anglès que vol escriure un llibre i el noi Ugwu. ( )

Read it before when it first came out. I prefer her next book Americanah. Had to re read this for book group and then forgot to attend!

A powerful and compelling read about one of the many little known but horrific conflicts that have taken place all over post-colonial Africa, and as is often the case it was the former white 'rulers' that laid the foundations........The main characters are all really interesting, some likeable, some not so and the way they cope under, often horrendous, circumstances, certainly made me reflect....how would I cope? What would I do? ( )

While there are disturbing scenes, the writing is superb, and Adichie puts a human face on war-torn Africa. The characters are authentic, the story is compelling. It is a worthwhile read, which will linger in your thoughts long after you turn the last page.

Today I see it still--

Dry, wire-thin in sun and dust of the dry months--

Headstone on tiny debris of passionate courage.--

My grandfathers, whom I never knew,
Nwoye David Adichie and Aro-Nweke Felix Odigwe,
did not survive the war.
My grandmothers, Nwabuodu Regina Odigwe and Nwamgbafor Agnes Adiche, remarkable women
both, did.
This book is dedicated to their memories:
ka fa nodu na ndokwa.
And to Mellitus, wherever he may be.
