Purple Hibiscus is a truly amazing novel that narrates a child’s search for approval and journey through phases of life that one goes through. It tells of a child’s strive to be accepted yet defiant at the same time. In this book she touches topics such as politics, religion and even domestic violence, the last two being connected in the presented situation. With use of the Igbo language she writes with a level of intelligence, describing Kambili’s (the main character) world both physical and emotional to perfection. It’s almost as if Adichie, for that time, possessed the mind of a fifteen-year-old Nigerian Catholic girl.
