Masterful book. Ms. Adichie brings a fresh perspective to race and racism in America narrated through the perspective of a Nigerian emigre first learning what it is to be black. The story is much more than that - a love story as well - but it nevertheless has new observations (to me, a way) I found compelling and thought-provoking. ( )

This was recommended to me by both my regular reading friends and by a Nigerian co-worker and I'm glad they steered me towards this book.

The main story is about the experience of a Nigerian immigrant to America both here and later when she returns to Nigeria. This part of the novel I found extremely entertaining and just like any other good novel.

Interspersed with the story are excerpts from the protagonist's blog on race in America. The blog sections were amazing and uncomfortable in a way all together different from the main novel. While the main story was just a story the blog posts hammered home some uncomfortable truths about race and class that are difficult to read as a white American. It is hard to accept that the things in the blog are true while knowing deep down that they are. It forced me to consider things that otherwise would never cross my mind. I hope that reading these things has changed me and will help change others and maybe make the world more even.

A story about love and difference between two different cultures, addressing systemic racism. ( )

I had been waiting to read this book... but after all the buzz about it, I was almost hesitant, in case it disappointed. Well - I was *not* disappointed. This novel really absorbed me from the first page. I loved the characterizations (particularly the character of Ifumele), which are very rich and three dimensional, and some of my favorite writing is in Ifumele's blog posts. ( )

Adichi belicht op een universele en toch eigen manier de pijn van migreren. De Nigeriaanse Ifemelu begint in Amerika een relatie met een Amerikaan maar vergeet haar eerste Nigeriaanse geliefde niet. ( )

The stories have shifted, too. Nowadays, there’s little angsting about national identity in a post-colonial context or, for that matter, over catastrophe and want. Instead, a bevy of young Africans are shaping the future of fiction, reportage and critique on their continent, and perhaps well beyond.

“It’s beyond an evolution — it’s a revolution,” says Nigerian-American Ikhide Ikheloa, a critic and prominent observer of the scene.

It may have begun in 2003, when Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s first novel, Purple Hibiscus, was published — and not just by an American publisher but by a Nigerian one, too. By now, Adichie is the still-young doyenne of the contemporary African lit scene. Her recent novel, Americanah, found a perch on the New York Times list of top 10 novels of 2013 — just weeks before Beyoncé sampled one of Adichie’s TED talks on her new album.

But what makes the book such a good read—despite an anticlimactic ending—is that it's not meant as a cultural criticism, but more as a series of rich observations.

“Americanah” examines blackness in America, Nigeria and Britain, but it’s also a steady-handed dissection of the universal human experience — a platitude made fresh by the accuracy of Adichie’s observations.

Princeton, in the summer, smelled of nothing, and Ifemelu like the tranquil greenness of the many trees, the clean streets and stately homes, the delicately shops and the quiet, abiding air of earned grace, it was this, the lack of a smell, that most appealed to her, perhaps because the other American cities she knew well had all smelled distinctly.

...her relationship with him was like being content in a house but always sitting by the window and looking out.
How easy it was to lie to strangers, to create with strangers the versions of our lives that we have imagined.
She was taking two sides at once, to please everyone; she always chose peace over truth, was always eager to conform.
She rested her head against his and felt, for the first time, what she would often feel with him: a self-affection. He made her like herself. With him, she was at ease; her skin felt as though it was her right size.
She liked how he wore their relationship so boldly, like a brightly colored shirt. Sometimes she worried that she was too happy. She would sink into moodiness, and snap at Obinze, or be distant. And her joy would become a restless thing, flapping its wings inside her, as though looking for an opening to fly away.
