While many of my students complain about the unsophisticated writing style of Emecheta, they complete the book with a new understanding of not only Nigeria but also Nigeria from a woman's perspective. There are not large assortments of young adult, Nigerian novels from which to choose, and those authored by Nigerian women shrink the pool even more so. The conflict between the modern and traditional worlds of the Ibo are illustrated well in The Bride Price. This book is very teachable and makes a good addition to any World Literature curriculum.

Read for School
I read this book not knowing what to expect. It was pretty good. I suggest that you read it, even though I almost put it down for good at first because it starts out a tad bit slow and detailed. It describes a lot about the African culture, and it has love, adventure, etc. Warning: Sad ending, and I think that the author shoulda made a different, more powerful, ending.Was this review helpful?
