  1. Could not put it down
    Pui, 26 april 2016

    It is a catching novel. In addition, I learned lots of new when it comes to critical thinking and race. Even if it sounds a bit banal, this book really allows you to travel while staying at home

  2. Vit/svart, man/kvinna
    Synnöve Christina Borup, 17 december 2014

    Lättläst bok om ett olösligt(?) problem. Boken kan läses som ett blogginlägg om vår förkärlek för att rangordna våra medmänniskor: vit/svart, man/kvinna. Säger lika mycket om Amerika som Nigeria.

  3. fick den i present på svenska
    Gunvor Bergström, 17 juni 2014

    läste och var helt fascinerad - lånade ut till olika vänner som älskade den. Köpte den på engelska för att ge bort.. Intressant o lärorik bok om relationer mellan svart o svart etc. Mycket motsättningar som man inte har en aning om - hon är en fantastisk författare, har tyvärr inte hunnit läsa "en halv gul sol" och "lila hibiscus"

'A brilliant novel: epic in scope, personal in resonance and with lots to say' Elizabeth Day, Observer 'A delicious, important novel from a writer with a great deal to say' The Times 'A brilliant exploration of being African in America ... an urgent and important book, further evidence that its author is a real talent' Sunday Telegraph 'An extremely thoughtful, subtly provocative exploration of structural inequality, of different kinds of oppression, of gender roles, of the idea of home. Subtle, but not afraid to pull its punches' Alex Clark, Guardian 'A tour de force ... The artistry with which Adichie keeps her story moving, while animating the complex anxieties in which the characters live and work, is hugely impressive' Mail on Sunday 'Adichie is terrific on human interactions ... Adichie's writing always has an elegant shimmer to it ... Wise, entertaining and unendingly perceptive' Independent on Sunday 'Adichie paints on a grand canvas, boldly and confidently ... This is a very funny, very warm and moving intergenerational epic that confirms Adiche's virtuosity, boundless empathy and searing social acuity' Dave Eggers '"An honest novel about race" ... with guts and lustre ... within the context of a well-crafted, compassionate, visceral and delicately funny tale of lasting high-school love and the sorrows and adventures of immigration' Diana Evans, The Times '[A] long, satisfying novel of cross-continental relationships, exile and the pull of home ... Adichie's first novel for seven years and well worth the wait' FT 'Alert, alive and gripping' Independent
