Book Review:
The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Title: The Thing Around Your Neck
Author: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Published: 2009
Language: English
Pages: 220
Rating: 4/5

A collection of stories about beauty, sorrow, longing and the human struggle to reconcile two different cultures.

This is the second book I've read by Adichie, and it was spectacular. I enjoyed almost all of the stories in this collection.

The writing in this is stunning, and the stories are very interesting. I love that clash between cultures, in this specifically the clash between African and American. This collection, though it's fiction, has the feeling of being extremely honest.

But I think what I love most about this, and Adichies writing in general, is her skill of capturing characters. They feel so real, like you can almost reach out your hand and touch them.

If you haven't read anything by Adichie yet, this is a good place to start. Either way, you should read it!
