"A powerful, emotional debut novel told in the unforgettable voice of a young Nigerian woman who is trapped in a life of servitude but determined to get an education so that she can escape and choose her own future. Adunni is a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl who knows what she wants: an education. This, her mother has told her, is the only way to get a "louding voice"-the ability to speak for herself and decide her own future. But instead, Adunni's father sells her to be the third wife of a local man who is eager for her to bear him a son and heir. When Adunni runs away to the city, hoping to make a better life, she finds that the only other option before her is servitude to a wealthy family. As a yielding daughter, a subservient wife, and a powerless slave, Adunni is told, by words and deeds, that she is nothing. But while misfortunes might muffle her voice for a time, they cannot mute it. And when she realizes that she must stand up not only for herself, but for other girls, for the ones who came before her and were lost, and for the next girls, who will inevitably follow; she finds the resolve to speak, however she can-in a whisper, in song, in broken English-until she is heard"--… (lisätietoja)

I tried to read this book but had a hard time the the language. I didn’t finish because I was not able to feel a connection with the main character. ( )

I had another reader tell me that this book was written in the way that Adunni learns to read. So clunky at first but progressing with better pronunciation and grammar. Which I really liked this aspect about the book. It showed the progression of Adunni's journey.

She started out as a girl but by the end of the story, she had grown into a strong woman. Adunni is the embodiment of female empowerment that we need today. This story may have been about Adunni but she could not have done it alone. She had help along the way. The other women in this book were just as strong.

I zoomed through this book as I could not stop reading it. In fact, it is my first five star read of 2021! I am really looking forward to reading the next book by this author. The Girl with the Louding Voice is a five star recommended read! It is worth all the praise it is receiving. ( )

THE GIRL WITH THE LOUDING VOICE by Abe Dare`
This was a wonderful book – after I got past the dialect the main character and narrator speaks. Adunni, the young Nigerian girl with the “louding” voice, is fourteen as the novel begins. From an extremely poor family, she is sold into marriage with an older man who stops her schooling although she is a good student with the promise of a scholarship to continue her education. The rest of the books deals with the vastitudes of her life.
The dialect improves as the novel proceeds and by the end I no longer noticed the dialect. In fact, the use of dialect enhanced the impact of Adunni’s story. Adunni’s story, unfortunately, is not unusual in Nigeria or many parts of the world.
AN excellent read that would be a great choice for a mother/daughter book group or a group made up of mostly educators.

Wow!!!!! The subject matter is rough, but the language, (select) relationships, and Adunni's spirit and determination are magnificent! ( )

A really interesting book I couldn't put down about a 14 year old, poor girl in Nigeria. It talks about all the hardships she faces. It also is about the plight of women in Nigeria. The end of the book gets a little preachy about feminism in Nigeria, but before that it is just really interesting how different women deal with their lives and situations. Definitely would recommend. ( )

Daré has said of the language in which the book is written: “Nigerians speak something called pidgin English, and I knew I didn’t want to write in pidgin English because even the very educated people speak pidgin English. I wanted it to be nonstandard English.The results of this invented English are uneven.. I could make it Adunni’s. It could be her own English, so to speak....The novel is strongest when dealing with interpersonal relationships, especially between characters of different classes.....The story told in this novel is an important one. The trauma of girls forced into marriage and the blight of domestic slavery in Nigeria are both issues that must be brought to light. As Adunni wonders: “Why are the women in Nigeria seem to be suffering for everything more than the men?” The Girl With the Louding Voice joins a long and fine tradition of issue-led novels that have sparked conversations resulting in social change. Social justice is a laudable intention when writing a novel, yet one also reads them for subtler and less concrete gains.
