The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Purple Hibiscus - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Purple Hibiscus:

The story of Kambili's privileged life.

My favorite Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Quote from the book:

"We cannot be part of what we fight."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Is a religious person always a good person?

What would you do to keep your family together?

My review of the book Purple Hibiscus:

Kambili has become a favorite character.

Religion should not be allowed to shield abuse.

I can't imagine living during a period of civil unrest.
