5.0 out of 5 stars The Significance of Grief and the Dying
By Singh, R. on 6 June 2021
Notes of Grief’ is an written in the memory of Adichie’s father, James Nwoye Adichie, who passed away on 10 June, 2020. The essay is an attempt to deal with the grief over his untimely loss. It is her way to mourn his life- that of a caring father, a serious academic, a concerned citizen of Nigeria and above all “a lovely man”. She wants to capture her grief; both its emotional and physical manifestations through her writing. Like all the issues and emotions she writes about in her books, the essay is resonant of one that has hit hard and is unbearable to her. She ruminates on the hurt, the shock and the change death causes in one’s life. Adichie’s text is a brief reflection on what it feels like to lose someone and how we try to negotiate our lives and those of other around us during that loss. Her essay holds you closer, whispers an elegy that will make you cry and let you think of a way to accept how fiercely death changes us.
Thank you, @harpercollinsin for the review copy.

3.0 out of 5 stars The book will leave you crying
By Dhwani on 14 June 2021
A sentence, that Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi has written in her book, Notes On Grief that will leave you astonished,

'I am writing about my father in the past tense and I cannot believe I am writing about my father in the past tense.'

Losing someone close to us never has been and never will be easy. To imagine the sorrow, grief and the despair they may be feeling over the loss, can leave us quite thunderstruck. We have all dealt with small and big losses in our own way and none of the ways are easy.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi's father, the scholar, James Nwoye Adichi, passed away on 10th June, 2020. Notes On Grief is her attempt to pay tribute to her father and her account with grief. She's written about how her father passed away, how helpless it felt to not be able to meet or see him one last time, and the kind of man he was. Her and her family's reaction to his passing away will leave you in tears. She portrays a very raw, open and honest account of how she felt about it. Her writing will make you cry, for grief is quite ruthless and so are its manifestations.

Notes On Grief is a brief account of grief and it's an extremely emotional read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review
By Chaitanya Sharma on 23 June 2021
My first taste of Adichie was “We should all be feminist” in 2020 and I was immediately drawn to her words. I watched her ted talks and put her books in my wishlist.

Then came ‘Notes on Grief’ and I jumped right in. The book is a heartbreaking account of the author’s emotions after her father passed away. Although the book is just 90 pages long it manages to strike a chord with it’s readers because Adichie captures emotions that people struggle to put in words.

I especially felt her helplessness amid all the Covid uncertainties, her fight between grief and heart, her first reaction to hearing the news “Don’t tell anyone, because if we tell people, then it becomes true”.

In this well written book there are a few quotes which I particularly loved-

✨ I did not know that we cry with our muscles. The pain is not surprising, but its physicality is.

✨ Laughter becomes tears and becomes sadness and becomes rage. I am unprepared for my wretched, roaring rage. In the face of this inferno that is sorrow, I am callow and unformed.

✨ We don’t know how we will grieve until we grieve.
