To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The author has added so much to my understanding of Nigeria - its people, its history, its problems. So much more rewarding to see a country through the eyes of a person who 'belongs' there. Gripping tales, brilliant writing. A wonderful sense of place and memorable characterisation meant that this reader was still mulling it over weeks after the book was finished.
A fantastic trilogy. A must for all lovers of African literature and great books in general. Half a Yellow Sun aided my understanding of the Biafran war and the human tragedy that it was. Americana is the best reflection of what it is to be a modern woman of African heritage that I have read so far.
