Crossing three continents and spanning numerous decades, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Fourth Estate, £8. 99) is a gripping tale which tackles the ambitious themes of race and immigration. In essence it's a romance, the story of Nigerian schoolmates Ifemelu and Obinze, whose relationship is put on hold when they go their separate ways to seek better lives in America and England. Their painful experiences of segregation and difficulties securing asylum make for uncomfortable reading at times, but it is to Adichie's credit that these overarching tensions merely strengthen the tenacity and appeal of the characters, in... Americanah took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and left me wanting more, which is why it is without a doubt my book of the year. Sarah Waters writes wonderfully and evocatively of the times in which she sets her books. This holds true for her latest offering, The Paying Guests (Virago, £20) whose 1920s setting perfectly captures the social and cultural tensions that emerged following the Great War. Addressing issues of longing, desire and propriety, it goes far beyond the crime drama narrative on which the book hangs. I was so delighted when Richard Flanagan won the Man Booker for The Narrow Road To The Dark North (Chatto and Windus, £16. 99). There are some books which make a lasting emotional impact, whose words conjure up unforgettable pictures, and you feel... This is one such book and the world is a better place for it. Colm Toibin.
