    As teenagers, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love in a Nigeria under military dictatorship. The self-assured Ifemelu departs for America, where Obinze hopes to join her, but post-9/11 America will not let him in, and he plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, after so long apart and so many changes, will they find the courage to meet again, face to face?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Americanah to be better than the print version?

    NOT REALLY. ITS JUST MORE CONVENIENT


    What did you like best about this story?

    It painted an authentic and very vivid picture of the characters and the time periods in which the story was set


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes
    it did but I'm disappointed in the narrator's portrayal of a Nigerian accent. She didn't get it. She sounded east African and all the Nigerian names were pronounced wrong. That sort of compromised the experience for me but the storyline made up to it big time. The publisher should look into that


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
