Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Purple Hibiscus

I picked up this book because I recognized the author’s name. Back in the day, she posted at The Site Where the Snarkers Met (as Amanda Ngozi). I remembered her writing & that I liked it, so when I heard about this book that was enough to send me to the bookstore looking for it.

So. I liked it. It was an easy read, meaning the writing didn’t tax my brain, which is precisely what I needed. It was interesting, in that it was set in Nigeria, so I got some insight into another part of the world. Always good. And I think it was quite perceptive; I related a lot to what the story had to say about family. I’d read more by this author.
