Mary I thought, after finishing it, that it's basically a romance. A very literary romance, but a romance nonetheless.
Jacob No. It's about race, culture, and country, with a bit of love thrown in for good measure.
Cristina Garcia It's about love, self love, passionate love, love for your country, love for the new. It was a great read.
Desirae Murray That is not an easy question, because Ifemelu and Obinze are two individuals who are honestly in love. Yet, are divided between a multitude of issues that revolve around modern: society, race, culture, class, and idealistic beliefs. Ifemelu became a famous blogger due to her drive to succeed better than her own friends and parents. Obinze got rich because he was tired of failing and resorted to Chief's corrupt influences in order to survive. As a result, both feel like the outsiders due to their unwillingness to conform in only one group. Therefore, the three things you have mentioned cannot have a solid conclusion.
S No. It is much more an inward-looking autobiography that displaces the main character from her country, and sometimes even from herself, in that it challenges her hitherto held ideas.
