After getting through the accent, I was awakened to a naked truth that this woman is telling us. It is our responsibility as free women and people to look into matters of abuse, torture, and slavery that comes with following a religion that does not allow thinking and questioning. All religions are based on words that are written by men, and used to keep people in check. I am amazed in the transformation and the courage this took to brake away from the teachings of her clan and her culture. I wish I could do something to help these women from this culture, sometimes the unknown is more scary than living with such restraints of culture.
I recommend this book for a glimpse into a world that most Western Countries have no clue to.
I absolutely loved this book, I cryed, laughed, and got my cherokee dander up. My love for history was satisfied, and I am actually going to read again. The Woman on both sides were strong and the type of women it took to live out west. Again, I loved the book and recommened it to all my friends.
Victims are totally not my cup of tea. I was completely disappointed in this book. Knowing a little about this background, there were moments when I felt that she was smart and going to get out from behind the cloud that she was born under. It shed a completely deferent light on her when her brother’s letter was read, and she did not get it, instead she was angry with him, when she should have seen that he was her victim and the brunt of her anger, as she was her mother’s. Very disappointing, would not and have not recommended it.
David, has become my new best friend. I love his books and thought I would not like something without Oliver, however, I want more of the Perry sisters, and more of Davids books.
When I was finished with book, I was left empty. I know it was suppose to be uplifting, however, I was left feeling that somehow the main character Suzi, spent 8years lusting over Ray, and not enough time helping catch this evil human on earth. I must have missed something along the way, or at least that's how it made me feel. When she did have the chance to give her family closure, she ended up using that time to use Ruths body for pleasure, while her killer was right there.
This book evokes the need for us to examine how hate and racial bias are really taught to us. The way this was presented was intelligent and real. All the characters were part of thier own conditioning, and are really trapped into thier own worlds. Some awaken and take thier blinders off, and some remain there forever. I loved this book, and would recommend it to anyone. Please read it.
I thought The Kite Runner was great, this book is just as good. Please read this book, I wonder how woman endure this type of abuse and hate at the hands of thier husbands and men who are so full of rage, I was appalled and saddened by what these woman go through. This book does not lend good feelings about the muslum world for us Westerners. I guess we will never understand this way of thinking, thank GOD.
I loved this book, as I do most of Tess's books. It kept me glued to the Ipod again. I love the characters, especially Maura, and Jane. I recommend this book and Tess's books to anyone who loves mysteries.
This book started off very slow, and I thought that I was not going to continue listening. However, about a quarter way through I found myself engrossed in it. I loved the characters, especially Lizbeth, I loved her grit. I recommend this book, am glad I did not give up.
This book was a very edgy book, I completely enjoyed it. It's a recommend read, it's very thought provoking.
