it was amazing

What can I say? I loved this book and fell in love with Ayaan Hirsi Ali! Having lived in Somalia for two years in another life, this revealing--often-shocking--and fascinating memoir on African culture and Islam touched a chord deep within. I thought I had learned Somali Muslim culture when I lived there, but the book kept showing me what I knew was only the tip of the iceberg.

The high point is definately her struggle to overcome her religious/cultural tradition, wrest free from her family's expectations, and enter the modern world as a liberated and open-minded woman. A terrific read and highly engaging journey. See another Somali woman I admire on my blog.
