4.0 out of 5 stars Writing within the writing was beautiful and that is what the book is about.
By Kitabi Keeda on 22 February 2019
Americanah is a love story of Ifemelu and Obinze. Americanah is also a discussion about race, kinky hair, immigration, society and its social relationships, and life in Africa.. well Nigeria.

The base story was good. Enough to keep you hooked. All the characters were real and interesting. But the writing within the writing was beautiful and that is what the book is about. I read that the story is based on the author’s own experiences when she encountered race in USA.

Ifemelu’s thoughts, as she encounters various situations in her homeland and in a foreign country; as she invents and re-invents herself via her blogs, as expressed by the writer are what make the book so much more than just a story. The same goes for the experiences described by Obinze.

The book talks about the difference between being black in Africa and being black elsewhere. The flow is quite seamless as the author takes us through different countries. It talks about very real situations of immigrant lifestyles and the changes that one goes through to try and fit in and the psychological upheavals it can cause. Everyone assumes that moving from a less developed country to a more developed one is a blessing and can only bring opportunities. But so many issues go unspoken. Adichie has not shied away from bringing them up.

A great read, fairly fast paced, thought provoking and well written. I would recommend this book for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best book to know about life of people of color in America
By Aanchal Gupta on 15 December 2020
If you want to read about what it's like to go to America and settle there, this book is for you. The book is a bit long but it will have you rooting for the main characters, Ifemelu & Obinze (although Ifemelu's character has no depth, she is literally dissatisfied and always complaining). It tells about how black people suffer from race discrimination in America, no matter where they come from. This book also tells about how difficult life is for migrants in the England. At times saddening but the ending is what one might give a thumbs up.
I loved reading it. Will recommend everyone!
