The limits of fifteen-year-old Kambili's world are defined by the high walls of her family estate and the dictates of her fanatically religious father. Her life is regulated by schedules: prayer, sleep, study, prayer. When Nigeria is shaken by a military coup, Kambili's father, involved mysteriously in the political crisis, sends her to live with her aunt. In this house, noisy and full of laughter, she discovers life and love - and a terrible, bruising secret deep within her family. This extraordinary debut novel from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of 'Half of a Yellow Sun', is about the blurred lines between the old gods and the new, childhood and adulthood, love and hatred - the grey spaces in which truths are revealed and real life is lived.

Beautiful insight into life in Africa - Good book, good writing and nice story. The end was a bit disappointing but other than that it is very much worth a read.

Quelques soupçons de la "couleur pourpre", des personnages hautes en couleurs ! - J'ai découvert cette auteure lors d'une conférence, j'ai voulu découvrir son oeuvre, j'en suis ravi.Je recommande ce livre à toutes celles et tous ceux qui veulent comprendre le poids de la religion et des restes de la colonisation sur l'Afrique d'aujourd'hui.

An author to watch - This is a chilling but beautiful coming-of-age story, alternating between the protagonist's silent, suffocating life with her violent father and the contrasting laughter-filled life at her aunt's, against the coulourful background of 1966 Nigeria.There are plenty of themes here - colonialism, Nigerian politics, domestic violence, coming of age, teenage love - but most importantly the use of religion to justify cruelty or, conversely, to spread love and generosity.An author to watch (and I will certainly read "Americanah") and an ideal read if you want to discover African literature and plunge into Nigerian's delightful scenery.
