An adult book for a reason. Leaves you with a greater understanding of Islam and the culture surrounding it.

Wow. I learned so much from reading this book. The author does a wonderful job of explaining in a matter-of-fact tone what life is like as a girl and a woman in the Islamic culture. How the belief & values have a completely different base than Christianity, Judaism, or any western countries. How actions have consequences and affects on people's lives that we in the western world might not expect.

I am almost finished listening to this fascinating and eye-opening memoir (Ayaan is also the reader and she does a wonderful job). Very gripping, often shocking, Ayann’s story of growing up in Somalia and other African countries reaffirms how fortunate we are to live with personal freedoms.

Beginning with her childhood in her native Somalia, she candidly recounts her life and relationship with her family as they flee their war-torn country for Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and finally Kenya, where she spent many of her teenage years. Ayaan escaped an arranged marriage by fleeing to Holland, and eventually became a Dutch citizen and member of Parliament.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s autobiography is amazing and difficult to put down, and learning about Somali culture through her eyes was intensely fascinating.
