I work at a small college. I like humorous books and books where the main character triumphs. I do not like religious books or mysteries.

    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 listen to Americanah again? Why?

    I loved this book. The story is very compelling and the reader does a wonderful job of bringing life to the characters.


    Have you listened to any of Adjoa Andoh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this is the first time I have listened to any of Adjoa Andoh's performances.


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

    I liked breaking this up into smaller sessions, so that I can enjoy it in small doses.
