Has anybody read this?

I taught it two years ago and loved it (although it made me cry!) so thought I'd do a general thread to see if anyone else loves it too.

She is an amazing writer. Have you read her other books? I really liked Purple Hibiscus but I thought Americanah was even better. Kambili and Ifemelu are fantastic and I don't think there are many other writers who can tackle big issues in such a compelling, character-centered way.

Absolutely loved this book too. And liked her second novel Half of a Yellow Sun even more

I loved it too, some of it still haunts me! Personally I didn't like her others as much, though I haven't tried many.
