Rating: 3 out of 5

This books surrounds and is surrounded by an event I knew nothing about - the Biafran war. It is well written but didn’t transport me, I didn’t feel for any of the characters, I didn’t worry for them. And that feels like a shame.

As a side note, this is the first ebook I’ve borrowed from my local library. So have read it on an iPad rather than on my kindle or in paper. Which has been a different experience, but a good one and worth pursuing with other books.
