"Half of a Yellow Sun" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I don't really know how to rate this book. As most political novels are, this was widely hailed on publication. I found its perspective on the famine forced upon the Biafran population by the Nigerian government different and interesting, because it is personal and somewhat oblique. Otherwise we have capable storytelling of one small group's participation in the horror of the Biafran war for independence.

I guess I don't approach fiction with much of a political mindset. If the praise, by contrast, is for the artistic merits of the book and not its subject matter, then I become confused. If books that deal with events such as these is your cup of tea, then this will fulfill your desire.
