    "Shocking, but things that need to be said"

    The author is simply an amazing person. I have so much respect for her survival skills and bravery. I admit that I found parts of the first half of the book to be a little "draggy" and confusing, most likely because of the stark difference between her culture and mine. (It was little frustrating trying to keep up with proper nouns so some parts felt long.) But narration aside, her life story is amazing and inspirational. Her opinions were sometimes jaw-dropping, but I couldn't help but think that she raises very valid and important points. Personally I feel I'm one of those she speaks of, when she talks about how political correctness keeps westerners from questioning the oppression of women. So not only would I recommend reading this book, I would even more highly recommend talking about it.

    "Eye-opening true story, told in fascinating narrative"

    Her accent takes a little while to get used to. When I did, I was very glad she was reading it herself.

    I assumed this would be another story of a brutalized muslim woman who lived to tell the tale, but it's so much more. Ayaan had an open mind, unstoppable in her quest to ask hard questions and take action.
    I've now enjoyed watching her on youtube interviews and have learned so much from her.
    Remarkable and brave woman with important and compelling message.

    "A must read for every Western politician"

    What a captivating book!!! I fell in love with Ayaan, her genuine view of the world, her wisdom, and beautiful soul. I admire her courage to stay true to herself, and to continue her fight to open our eyes so we could understand what Islam stands for. Only when we are not afraid to tell it how it is, we could all work together towards a better world.

    "Haunting ..."

    A history lesson far more complex and tragic than I possibly could've imagined. I have been both captivated and speechless!

    "extraordinary!"

    I couldn't stop listening. it places everything in context. it also shows us that the press and politicians refuse to see the truth about Islam and prefer to be hypocrites to the truth.

    "Debate Spark"

    Education is the key to enlightenment. This book is a testament to that statement and a good place to start for those readers ignorant of the way a large part of the world lives.

    "Loved this memoir!"

    Great book and performance! So many things I did not. I am grateful for the life I have and the life I am able to
    Give my daughters. I did not realize that in some cultures things are so different. Ayaan is someone who is making a difference in our world for social justice. Thank you for sharing your story with the world!

    "Excellent"

    I have learned much about what it must be like to grow up in a Muslim country. Ayaan is a survivor and I admire her greatly. Thank goodness that we have someone like her, with her experience, intelligence and fortitude, to support women's rights.

    "A Must Read I wasn't expecting Much"

    This is an intensely personal story 16 hours on audio of Ayaan's life growing up in Somalia as a Muslim. It is not overly political as much as it is wanting the Western world to understand what the problems are and why she helped Van Gough make the movie that ended up getting him assassinated. You will understand why it is not arrogant or hateful but a deep desire to help her people.
