Her writing is live! The stories she weaves, the characters she produces are surreal. I appreciate her third world style of writing, not just about the story but about the smells, the fruits, the animals, the surroundings...by the time she gets to the message...the heart of the story, you're ready to weep.

Adichie continues to grow as a writer. "The Thing Around Your Neck" is an excellent collection of stories regarding the Nigerian and Nigerian American experience.

The writing is very good. But the characters are bitter and some of them unforgivable. Being from that part of the world myself I took offense to certain characters. I suppose the author had a platform and she took it.

These stories make you feel that you are there and a part of the story yourself. She always makes me think!
