Americanah speaks of a pair of ill fated couple, Ifemelu and Obinze, who are deeply in love in secondary school and through a chain of events, separated in different continents.Ifemelu beautiful, self-assured departs for America to study. The many love relationships that she had was intimately lived and examined. The self saboteur of love can relate to Ifemelu’s tendency to destroy a fulfilling love relationship. The problem is not with the men who loves her, the problem is with Ifemelu. Obinze, the quiet, thoughtful son of a professor had hoped to join her, but post-9/11 America will not let him in, and he plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. His story becomes closer to home for me. Years later, Obinze is a wealthy man in a newly democratic Nigeria, while Ifemelu has achieved success as a writer of an eye-opening blog about race relation in America, writing a series of inflammatory, controversial piece of opinions on race which are cringe-worthy. To make you cringe further, excerpts of the blog post are included in this novel. Dark, funny and uncomfortable, it makes a compelling reading experience
