lotus--you're lucky, I'd love to hear her read! I hope she comes to L.A. at some point. I really enjoyed her book, and must get a copy of Purple Hibiscus soon...

I agree with you, "Half of a Yellow Sun" was so hard to put down! Did I tell you I got to listen to the author speak here in Toronto? She was amazing...I cannot wait for her next book!

literary feline--thanks--just got back from vacation, and I did have a very good time--I'm posting pictures later.

bellezza--thank you so much for the award--I really appreciate it!

stephanie--I really enjoyed Half of a Yellow Sun, and am inspired to read Purple Hibiscus soon.

matt--I'll have to investigate the novel version, too...

myutopia--I didn't know the paperback was out so soon--good, maybe I can suggest it for my book group!

litlove--I don't think I would have picked up Half of a Yellow Sun as quickly if I had known what it was really about. I usually avoid reading about war, and children in peril. Fortunately, I was ignorant about this book, so I read it anyway--and it was a very rewarding read :)

Cape Cod is a lovely place--I hope you get there some day!

2007-08-26T01:25:00.000-07:00

I'd love to go to Cape Cod - it has so many romantic literary associations for me! I shy away from reading Half of a Yellow Sun as I'm afraid it might be too traumatic, as I'm foolishly tender about war and dying children in books. Perhaps one day I'll get up the courage to read it!

I put in for Half a yellow sun for my birthday. The paperback comes out next month.

2007-08-20T13:12:00.000-07:00

Right, I read Pygmalion when i was in high school, saw the movies a million times but not until I read your post did I realize it's a novel. But i couldn't find it anywhere yet. I'd love to read it.

2007-08-20T11:40:00.000-07:00

I've heard such good things about this book!! I'm looking forward to your review!

Hope your vacation was good!

2007-08-19T11:20:00.000-07:00

What an inspiring list. (I don't think I've wanted to marry anyone since High School and Robert Redford's days of glory.) Come on over and get your award.



I hope you have a wonderful vacation!

2007-08-17T22:56:00.000-07:00

I hope you have a wonderful vacation!

imani--thanks for the meme, and I have not yet read The Purple Hibiscus. Ooh, now I have something to look forward to when I finish this book!

Hey, I'm glad you did the meme and that you're enjoying the Adichie novel so much! She is one of my absolute favourite writers. Have you read The Purple Hibiscus? It may be hard to imagine but I think it's even better than Half of a Yellow Sun.

2007-08-15T18:49:00.000-07:00

stefanie--thanks! And yes, Cape Cod is very pretty. I'll try to take some photos to share :)

What a beautiful photo! If Cape Cod looks like that your vacation is sure to be wonderful. Enjoy!

2007-08-15T17:19:00.000-07:00

matt--I didn't know My Fair Lady is a novel, either, though I have it in my head that it is based on Pygmalion. Maurice is a pretty good movie, I think one of the earlier Merchant/Ivory offerings. More Austen is always a good thing!

tara--I think Half of a Yellow Sun would be a great book to discuss, there's a lot going on in it. I'm planning to suggest it to my book group when we meet again in the Fall.

2007-08-15T16:17:00.000-07:00

I'm thinking of suggesting Half of a yellow Sun to my bookclub for next year, do you think it would be a good book to discuss?

Enjoy your vaction and your mini-bookclub, sounds wonderful!

2007-08-15T12:21:00.000-07:00

Enjoy the vacation and the book. :)

It's a shame i didn't even know My Fair Lady is a novel! Gosh I think that will make my TBR list!

Maurice is one of my beloved books, and, again, I didn't know there was a movie!

I need to read more Austen.
