Started out as an interesting concept, and I always enjoy a good exploration of folklore and tradition. Unfortunately, this book began scraping the bottom of the barrel about halfway through in a quest for more material, and it shows. Also, the aforementioned “Islamists” misnomer and a reference to “snowflakes “ did it for me. Avoid, avoid. If you need reference material on wedding culture for any reason, I can name about five different books you’d be better off with.
