It took me awhile to get in sync with the writer’s style. Tisye writing is poetic, she draws you in but once you are in wow, you feel and see the characters. It truly is a story about family, love, disappointments, hurts, and healing. Tisye beautifully weaved a story so true to life, it left me with a bitter sweetness, but is that not life.

What did you love best about Americanah?

Adichie is such an powerful voice. Americanah was lite but powerfully honest about race, culture, and relationships. It is one of those books you hate to finish. Adichie is a keen observer of this human experience, especially for people of African descent. I thank her for brilliantly putting it into such a wonderful story. The performance by Adjoa Andoh was great. Loved it!!!!!!

Delightful !!!

Excellent – I enjoyed this book, good historical fiction – It brought back memories of 70’s – weaving facts about the Black Panther Party and human drama –through the eyes of a 11 year-old girl.

What a wonderful book – it dealt with the pain and hardships African people endured in this country but brought forth a “Spirit” that gave the reader and a people hope – Up lifting – This needs to be a movie. What a gift, thank you Walter Mosley.
