A wonderful book, a fresh perspective

Adichie zoomed to the top of my favorite writers list when I read "Half of a Yellow Sun". -
"Americanah" has only increased my admiration for this gifted author. Her books are immensely readable, and, fairly quickly, the reader feels the protagonists are personal friends, understands their emotions, their experiences, their perspectives...
Yet her narratives are always thought-provoking; in "Americanah" she examines racism in the USA through the eyes of a non-African-American, ie an African living in the US.
