‘Heartbreaking, funny, exquisitely written and, without doubt, a literary masterpiece and a classicDaily Mail

Stunning. This novel is an immense achievement’ Observer

A landmark novel. Adichie brings to history a lucid intelligence and compassion, and a heartfelt plea for memory’ Guardian

'Vividly written, thrumming with life … a remarkable novel. In its compassionate intelligence as in its capacity for intimate portraiture, this novel is a worthy successor to such twentieth-century classics as Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart and V. S. Naipaul's A Bend in the River' Joyce Carol Oates

'Here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers’ Chinua Achebe

‘The character burrow into your marrow and mind, and you come to care for them deeply – something that is all too rare’ Daily Telegraph

‘A sane and compassionate new voice in an often strident world’ Financial Times

‘Adichie uses language with relish. She infuses her English with a robust poetry’ Helen Dunmore, The Times

‘A powerful account of the Biafran War, horrific and tender in equal measureSunday Telegraph

'Absolutely awesome. One of the best books I've ever read' Judy Finnigan

I wasted the last fifty pages, reading them far too greedily and fast, because I couldn’t bear to let go … magnificent’ Margaret Forster

Medlemmers vurdering

Litteraturelsker – 06.12.2007

– Denne boken er så vakkert skrevet om et så stygt tema som krig, at en litteraturelsker ikke kan være den foruten. Bakgrunnen for historien er den ikke så vakre borgerkrigen i Nigeria på slutten av 1960-tallet, med det utfallet at vi i vesten refererte til Biafra når våre barn ikke ville spise. Gjennom boken følger vi to tvillingsøstre og deres liv med sine menn og deres familie. Det er tvillingsøstrene som virkelig gjør boken verdt å lese! Jeg valgte denne utgaven; noe jeg ikke angrer. Adjoa Andoh har en nydelig stemme som gir mer liv til en levende bok. Jeg må innrømme at jeg savner tvillingene, og kanskje leser jeg den igjen.
