really liked it

This is an amazing read on many levels. First, because it is the story of a remarkable woman who kept herself alive despite incredible odds. Second, because it brings the reader into what life was like in both her village and also in Mogadishu, before and after the military dictatorship. It's fascinating. I found myself reading sections to whoever would listen to me. Anybody who thinks that muslim women are passive needs to read this book.
