    Story
    (13)

    Winner of Oprah's first "Chutzpah Award" for boldness, Irshad Manji is among the world's most visible - and vocal - Muslim reformers. In this audio book, narrated by her, Irshad explains the disturbing attitudes with which too many of her fellow Muslims practice Islam today: Arab cultural tribalism posing as pure faith. An uncritical approach to the Quran as the final and therefore superior word of God. And a rejection of universal human rights as if they are incompatible with the Divine.

    Stephanie says: "I met the author once and was curious..."
    "Non-stop rant from an angry l*sb**n"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Irshad Manji and/or Irshad Manji?

    I bet you think I'm yet another fundie terrorist writing this review. Hardly! I qualify for the title refusenik too. I grew up muslim but semi-abandoned it after a much soul searching and research. Yes, most of Islam is man-made crap. Yes, lots of muslims are inflexible and narrow-minded. Yes, muslims accuse Israel but really should get their own house in order. Yes, yes, yes - I agree with much of what Irshad Manji says.

    So, why do I hate this book?

    Very simply, it reads like a long rant. Ms Manji offers nothing. She just comes across as angry and uninterested in finding the truth or some higher understanding. She just wants to rant and let you the reader know she's angry. On and on it goes. Well, I got it. Sometimes a rose is just a rose and a book is just a rant from an angry lesbian.

    I'll say this though, Ms Manji is a good narrator.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Irshad Manji again?

    Never again.


    What does Irshad Manji bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her energy and presence.


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

    Disappointed. I was expecting more from this popular author.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is an utter waste of time. It is not a scholarly or balanced critique of its subject, Islam.
