Ok, the ending was a bit cheesy but I don’t care because I loved it!
Ifemelu is right up there with my fave female protagonists of all time. I love that she usually says what she’s thinking, but not just that – she’s actually a critical thinker. Her opinions aren’t empty or stupid. She doesn’t accept things at face value but really thinks about things. I really wish more female protagonists were as intelligent and honest as Ifemelu.
The men in the book were also well drawn out and interesting. None were perfect but we’re very believable.
I was also a huge fan of all the political and social conversations that went on in the book.
So glad that I finally got around to reading this book.
