What have you just finished reading?

I have just finished reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Where did you get the book from?

My sister gave me the book after I had been waiting a really long time to read it. African Literature gets me excited.

How did the book make you feel?

The book had me excited at how well it is written.  I just couldn’t wait to pick it up and continue reading.

Which character did you feel close to? And why?

Ifemelu, the main character really struck a cord with me due to how much she was misunderstood, her fall into depression, losing love and a passion for writing that left her conflicted.

What do you feel the author did well in the book?

Bringing out a tender issue on race as well as life abroad for Africans in a way that gets people thinking and pricks minds with gentility.

What would you change about the book?

Having a sequel maybe. The suspense has been killing me ever since.

Who would you recommend the book to?

Everyone who hasn’t read it and appreciates African Literature.
