First things first, loved discovering a new continent Africa and a country Nigeria. I had never read any African books or authors of you discount VS Naipaul who writes only to impress the western audience. Adichie instead writes what she wants to, she'd doesn't write what the most privileged western audience want to read. Most immigrant writers write how America is the land of Dreams and how lucky they are to be there. She weighs out everything and dares to write what she feels like. So extra points for that.
