Review Of Americanah Novel By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I am reading Americanah after reading purple hibiscus and I have to say that It is an awesome book, the novel focuses on race, love, and I had an entity. and I think that many people can relate to female journeys in America coming from different countries. I also loved the relationship that the novel shows about female and obinze.
Americanah looks at lives through a lens and makes us feel we are not alone when we have thoughts that may be self-conflicting. This book is therapy and I recommend it to anyone out there.
