Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 2/14/2014

    " I find the book problematic on several levels. But it really is fascinating. Worth a read, for sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 2/9/2014

    " Absolutely fantastic. Ayaan Hirsi Ali's story is absolutely riveting albeit dense. This book took me far longer than normal to finish; however, it was, without a doubt, time well spent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Haley Mcmichael | 1/22/2014

    " Captivating story of the author's broken upbringing that forms her into a leader for women. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie Ann | 1/18/2014

    " An incredible life story. This book expanded my mind in so many ways. Ayaan fled from the oppression of her Islamic background to the country of my ancestors - the Dutch. So not only did I learn many things about Islam, but also "my people," which in turn deepened an understanding of myself. I.e. the high value the Dutch place on self expression. Ayaan's struggles with faith and life result in many beautifully honest and brutally poignant observations and conclusions that can cause people from any faith to look into themselves more deeply. The lasting impact of the book, however, served mainly to deepen my own awe and respect for my God - Yahweh, the one who's revealed himself through Yeshua. The things I learned about Islam and the Qu'ran only contrasted more sharply with the teachings of the Bible and I fell in love with Jesus all over again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacquie | 1/13/2014

    " A good book which was an eye opener to Muslim society and their treatment of women, even in today's world. I enjoyed reading about Ayaan's life in the Netherlands probably because of my own Dutch background. I found the part in Dutch parliament to be a bit draggy but, nonetheless a thought provoking book worth a read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vowen | 1/13/2014

    " This portrait of a remarkable woman who faced countless atrocities and oppression was both difficult and eye-opening to read. With just a meager education and narrow world view, even Ali came to realize that the way she was raised was neither moral nor ethical. Escaping an arranged marriage to a distant cousin, she fled to Holland, gained refugee status, earned a college degree in political science and was elected to the Dutch parliament where she fought for the rights of Muslim women and immigrants. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 1/9/2014

    " Important that people read and understand how things are in the world, not just where we are from. This was readable, important, and a woman's perspective on women's rights. A "makes you think" book after you are done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn Hanna | 12/29/2013

    " this is a life changing book for me, it has changed the way I see certain things in life. I am glad I read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzanne (suz&mark) | 11/7/2013

    " I know this is a book that I am supposed to like but I just couldnt get into it "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michele | 10/23/2013

    " Very boring. Her life was difficult, without question, but the story was not told well. Her parents really let her down. Very selfish people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loreto Geisse | 9/25/2013

    " Compelling story although there were some sections that were difficult to read simply because they were too graphic. I find that her anti-muslim sentiments are a bit short sighted but understandable in light of her experiences. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela Stroh | 8/10/2012

    " An 'autobiography' with a thread that didn't always join the writer's thoughts cohesively. The subject matter is totally worth reading to understand that culture. I'm going to listen to this author speak in two weeks. I assume she will have a bodyguard entourage. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate_white | 8/8/2012

    " Inspiring! Changed my whole outlook on muslim women and what they go through, both good and bad. She tells it how it is and has made a huge difference in her community and her faith. She is so smart and set on making a difference. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brigitt | 7/27/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. Taught me a lot about the 'African-Muslim' world. Something I don't know much about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 6/24/2012

    " Excellent read.....keeps moving, and very enlightening....;-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Horricks | 2/20/2012

    " Great book, couldn't put it down "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olga | 7/18/2011

    " This is a wonderful book After I finished it my first reaction was: everybody should read it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trudy | 6/30/2011

    " This was a fascinating story from one woman's point of view of life as an Islamic woman who left the religion and embarked on a mission to free women and children from what she says is faith-sanctioned tyranny and abuse. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amira | 6/29/2011

    " Very bunch of BS but there are some aspects that made sense. Today Ayaan Hirsi is hated by majority of the muslim world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jorge | 6/26/2011

    " One of the best books I've ever read. A thorough review is forthcoming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristi | 6/26/2011

    " A story of a remarkably strong woman and her journey from Somalia to the Netherlands and to the United States. From Islam to atheism. If only there were more people like her! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 6/22/2011

    " It started out really good and held my interest regarding a muslin woman's plight growing up. Learned many things I had not known. But it kind of just lost it's appeal towards the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 6/18/2011

    " Repetitive, not particularly well-written but with enough interesting content to keep me reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 6/14/2011

    " Well written account of growing up in Somalia, Kenya, and Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim religion as practiced by different people and in different countries. This woman's courageous story not only inspires, but educates about the realities of the Muslim world." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 6/14/2011

    " One of the best books ever. It was enlightened and enlightening and the reader learns along with the author in her search for answers about her religion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 6/13/2011

    " What an eye opener and an astounding women who survived the odds. It was a definite insight into a different religion and it's just goes to show that we 'westerners' shouldn't take anything for granted. A good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 6/11/2011

    " A pretty life changing book. I need a break from learning about Islam, but this is an important story to read. Ms. Hirsi Ali is an inspiration to women around the world, not just those similarly affected by life as she has been. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judypeel | 6/11/2011

    " A hard but unfortunately probably true look at how Islam looks and treats women. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karla | 6/10/2011

    " Wow. Another take from a Somali muslim woman's experience. Important to read. "
