The Deckled Edge

I was put on this earth to read a certain number of books. I am now so far behind I will never die.

Half of a Yellow Sun - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

It wasn't quite perfect and I think it could have cut 30-40 pages and not lost much, but it was haunting and beautifully written. It's like McCarthy's The Road in that despite being very good, I doubt I'd ever read it again because it's simply too depressing.
