Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.

    The struggles of being a black woman in America is beautifully captured in this amazing read from Adichie. Certainly holds the reader captive from cover to cover

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Obinze and ifemelu were high school sweethearts who reconnected years after they stopped speaking entirely..The book captures their individual struggles in foreign countries
    Obinze was my favourite character,he came off as a strong,intelligent man who wasn’t a perfect 10 but had you somehow falling in love with him
    My favourite part has to be when Obinze was driving with ifemelu and then started singing obimo along with obiwon…this made the book very relatable and real
    It was a real page turner and I absolutely love everything about it,especially the author!
    I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story and a happy end.
