Everybody should read this book, 11 Dec. 2006
This book gives a deep insight in the life under a dictator and how fear can destroy life and families. I was moved by how strong the relationsship can be between a mother and a daughter. Zainab Salbi is a remarkable caracter and I deeply admires her after reading this book. It is a fantastic book. I will read it more than once, and I will make sure that my friends and family will get to know about this book as well.
