Read full description of the books:
First of all I have to say that Yvonne Ridley is bolshy, stubborn, does what she wants (not what others want her to do)drinks like a fish (or did) and smokes like there's no tomorrow. No flowery dresses or prim and proper lifestyle for her. Secondly I would like to say that I think she is great! She is funny, loud, reckless and rather a mans man (except that she is a woman).
I was surprised to read that she actually told the Taliban she was going to look into Islam upon her release. I always thought they had asked her to and once she had agreed they had released her. That certainly seemed to be the way the media portrayed it at that time. It was good to finally read what really happened.
I really enjoyed reading this book but there are a few things lacking. I really wanted to find out how her daughter/mother and rest of the family felt whilst she was being held. There was just a few pages at the end that spoke about her family but not really in depth. More importantly than that i thought I was going to find out why she decided to become Muslim? This isn't mentioned in the book at all. This is obviously my mistake as it seems she converted after the book was written.
I did find it interesting though to see the way she was treated after release by several people and she realised the Taliban treated her more respectfully than they.
It would be interesting to read a new book regarding her conversion. Many people assume she is foolish to become a Muslim when she has seen how the Taliban treat the women over there. However anyone who reads the Quran would find that it is culture that is wrong. Not the religion.
