Read in December, 2008
So far this book is amazing! However, my semester started before I could finish, so I'll be in suspense until December. I think it's a fantastic window into the lives of women in the contemporary Middle East, and in particular, the choices they are faced with vis-a-vis marriage, sex, and love. It's really beautifully written, too.
So now I'm finished, and I have to say, I liked this book more when I reading it this summer. I still like it very much. However, there were at least 100 pages during which I was pretty annoyed with the protagonist. I think that was the point thought. Anyway, I still highly recommend this book.
