    Story
    (4)

    In 1968, a naive 19 year old Midwestern girl marries an older Pakistani man and moves to Lahore where she lives as a Muslim wife for almost two years. She did not realize that her new husband married her to gain American citizenship and return to the United States. Her life in Pakistan is adventure-filled: shopping bazaars, dancing girls, an Islamic red light district, historical Moghul architecture, and social turmoil.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you are someone who can get past the narrator, then this book may be okay for you. I never could get past it to focus on the content.


    Has The Punjabi's Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    First of all, she has an accent (possibly British?), but this is an autobiography and as far as I could tell the author is American. That was distracting. Second, her reading is very flat. Third, you can hear her swallowing throughout, which I think a little gross. Fourth, about the 4th chapter she starts coughing and making reading errors that clearly should have been edited out. It's extremely unprofessional. That's when I had to stop listening. So maybe the book is terrific, but I'll never know.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    anger.
