YES, I loved this book! It's honest and straight forth, emotional and difficult to hear, but also kind, loving, clear and accessible. The story is her personal story but she weaves it through a complicated history, convoluted politics, and a people and faith that she obviously treasures and honors. In telling her story she teaches us about her culture and her home, a picture I've seen nowhere else. She retells her story, describing her feelings, opinions, and observations, but leaves the conclusions to her audience. When the book ended I felt heartbroken, inspired, humbled, and hopeful. When I grow up I hope to be more like this amazing young woman.
Malala, not surprising as it is an autobiography.
Archie Panjabi is fabulous as the narrator. Her voice, emotional inflection, and pacing are flawless, but the tenderness and humanity of her voice add a dimension to the experience that made it even more touching and personal for me. I would strongly encourage anyone looking into the book to consider the audio version.
A wonderful book, five stars all around.
