Thanks so much, Waterfalling! Another wishlist book I'm looking forward to reading. I read Brooks' Year of Wonders several years ago, then read March a couple of years ago. I'm looking forward to reading her People of the Book (which is currently being read by a couple of friends at work), and added this nonfiction book to my wishlist recently.

Wow, what a powerful and affecting book. I've read several of Brooks' novels, and loved them all. This is the first one of her non-fictions I've read, and this was just an unforgettable experience. Brooks explains women's experiences in the Middle East, showing how different customs vary in different countries. I still don't entirely get this, but there it is. She also explains the relevance of the Koran, as it is interpreted by men and various other ways it can be interpreted. Education is key in this area, so that women can read and interpret the Koran on their own. Interesting to read how literature, music and sport have been affected by the fundamentalists. An excellent book, highly recommended.

Thanks for sharing this with me, Waterfalling. This is reserved for a non-fiction vbb.

Arrived today, thanks so much MaryZee, and thanks for the bits of bookcrossing labels, etc too, I can always use more of that! :o)

In a wonderful display of bookcrossing serendipity, I note that this book began with waterfalling, from whom I chose my other title in this round of the non-fiction virtual bookbox. I must like your taste in books, my friend! :o)
