The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Adichie was one beautiful read albeit it took me a long time to finish, I just wasn’t serious with reading it.

In spite of that, I love Anything Chimamanda Adichie and yes I’m a bit late to reading this book but sue me😂!

This is a collection of short stories taking us through Nigeria to be specific and its different social beliefs on; Marriage, Childbirth, Women, School, Career, Foreign Lifestyle, Religion and so on.

I loved it because I could relate to almost all stories, it’s a thought provoking read, She as always has a way of presenting the History of Nigeria in her books which makes one read with a wistful sigh thinking of all we had and lost as Nigerians.

I graduated from The University of Nigeria so every time I read a story centred on it makes me smile😊, the last story was a bit weird though 🤔, in all it was an excellent read! 💖💖❤️❤️

Have you read Chimamanda’s books? What do you love about here works? “

I would certainly recommend this book to everyone!
