I will have you know that I have not read Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie, but I have come to know that the main story was between two people in love through the blurb. Although I am forward to reading the book, In an interview by The Observer Chimamanda answered the following questions about Americanah;
...what is Americanah about?

You write brilliantly about love. What do you think makes a love last?
I wish I knew… if I did, I would market it. Lasting love has to be built on mutual regard and respect. It is about seeing the other person. I am very interested in relationships and, when I watch couples, sometimes I can sense a blindness has set in. They have stopped seeing each other. It is not easy to see another person.
Have you experienced love at first sight?
No, but I would like to.
