Half of a Yellow Sun stephanyzoe Experience is what a good writer needs to develop a good piece of literature. Richard in the beginning of the Half of The Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi2 had very little self-confidence which I believe mirrors his book as well Richard came to Africa Because at first he was thinking Of making Igbc»Ukwu art a central part of his book. And the many-faceted Half of a Yellow Sun soon develops a panoramic span. Taking its title from an emblem on the flag of Biafra, the book sustains an intimate focus and an epic backdrop as Biafra secedes from Nigeria and genocidal hell breaks loose. Half of a Yellow Sun is not a conventional war story. It is a story whose characters live.
