Saturday’s Book: Purple Hibiscus by Ngozi Adichie

Not a Hibiscus but purple…

EXCELLENT!!!!

It is so well written that I was utterly mesmerised. I found it physically difficult to tear myself away from the book.

It’s not that the type of¬†characters or the setting are familiar to me – life in Nigeria during a military coup and fanatically religious Catholicism – but the writing is so skillful that I felt I was observing everything happening very closely, standing close enough to see, hear and feel.

Another case of “Thank a Librarian” who put it out on a RECOMMEDED¬†shelf!
