"Aidoo writes with intense power in a novel that, in examining the role of women in modern African society, also sheds light on women's problems around the globe."
"Changes reads... with abundant vernacular style, female friendship, and freedom and mobility in the modern city."
--Manthia Diawara, Director of Africana Studies and Professor of Comparative Literature and Film, New York University
"A powerful novel that explores the complex web of late 20th-century human relationships in ways that are both comic and deeply affecting."
"A wonderfully warm novel that truly shows that the more things remain the same (love) the more changes we (society) go through."
--Nikki Giovanni, author of Ego-Tripping and Other Poems for Young People

There are no easy answers: "a man always gains in stature any way he chooses to associate with a woman - including adultery -But in her association with a man, a woman is always in danger of being diminished."
Many differences to women's experiences in the West - but many similarities too!
Would give this *3.5
