Purple Hibiscus is a good start.
Half of A Yellow Sun is not for the faint of heart.
I haven't finished Americanah yet but it's been interesting so far.

I read Purple Hibiscus and it was alright. Started Half of a Yellow Sun and couldn't continue, I finished Americanah and wanted to strangle everyone who thought it "good"! It was pure shite! Terrible storyline with zero social impact to an actual Nigerian, horrible values being promoted and just a detestable lead character. I was thoroughly disappointed with the lead.

I thought the lead character rather selfish, but then again, most everyone in Americanah is flawed in some way, including the lead character. I suspect the writer ultimately is rebelling against the idea of the ''pure and right'' hero or heroine, surrounded by a large group of incompetents that need saving.

On the plus side....lots of nostalgia in that book.(If you were an 80'S child).

I'll warrant the nostalgia but really I could do without the aimless rebellion. What was she so rebellious about? Angry that a lover she ditched moved on, or happy that she broke up a home JUST like the Aunty Uju did with the unnamed General? She hated seeing her aunt like that and she goes and does EXACTLY the same thing she loathes in her youth... I don't know if the irony was intended but I had no respect for that character

Also this show is just about empty feminism and aimless sex... very fitting that they'd feature this novel.

Thank you.

I detested the character and after hearing Chimamanda saying she sees some of herself in both lead charaters I started detesting her a little lmao

Its ridiculous I know but I hate home breakers abeg

and they did it for such selfish self centered reasons not caring about the child involved

@kraftykc: it's plain to see where the problem lies.
I mean,you read Purple Hibiscus,Half of a yellow sun,Americanah ( books that have won several awards) and you didn't think much of them. You even consider 'Orange is the new black' crappy? Really? A highly acclaimed movie in it's 6th season that has also won several major awards?
Dude,the problem isn't far from you.

Just cos it's a women's prison doesn't mean it's empty feminism...what is it with some of you guys that brings about insecurity when some issue is mostly about women did you see spartacus, was there not a lot of s.ex in it as well, yet most pple liked it and it didn't think it was aimless but cos this series is basically about women it becomes aimless....i tire for una o lipsrsealed lipsrsealed
