The novel centers on twin sisters, Olanna and Kainene, members of the Igbo elite. Physically and temperamentally dissimilar, they struggle with an on-again-off-again mutual loyalty crosshatched with mistrust and betrayal. The twins also gravitate toward very different men: Olanna becomes the mistress of Odenigbo, an expansive intellectual and Pan-Africanist who teaches at a provincial university, while Kainene falls for Richard, a bashful, awkward but principled Englishman who takes up the Biafran cause. Rumors of war, then all-out conflict throw this privileged foursome’s world into disarray — along with the very different world of Ugwu, Odenigbo’s houseboy, who comes from an impoverished rural village.
Sorry, you weren't asking about the characters in the novel, but rather attempting to compare two novelists. That was poor reading of details on my part.
Since gaining its independence from Britain in 1960, Nigeria has given birth to a number of gifted writers. Two, are the Buchi Emecheta and Adichie. Adichie is an amazing storyteller and possesses an inordinate style with her finely tuned, lyrical sense of language.
Buchi writes in much the same way. She provides beautiful narration based on oral tradition. Although the two can also be contrasted; whereas Buchi writes in a simple style allowing her characters to do the talking, Adichie is a fan of idioms and rich details.
