I also found Ifemelu to be contemptible and selfish. The story did tie up one loose end but I questioned whether it should have ended as it did.
I also really loved it's amazing depiction of Nigeria. It portrayed an alternate image of Nigeria and Africa that the world needs. It's not always about poor black kids, lack of clean water and/or lack of education. It shows that there are in fact educated, middle class people who live normal lives and wear shoes contrary to what the media depicts and leads the rest of the world to believe. This book should be read by all kids in high school in America because it will give them a broader perspective of the world and about relationships between friends, lovers and family.
The author shines a light on some less obvious racism in America, especially those prejudices held by white folks who consider themselves enlightened liberals. No one reading this book can really get away without some level of discomfort about one's own unjust believes concerning race. We all learn racism; this book may help us unlearn it.
