I found this book to be very interesting, although it wasnt one of those books that I couldn't put down. At times it was hard work.I did learn alot about the Saudi culture though, and believe me, it's definately NOT a place I personally would ever want to risk visiting. Women are treated very badly and in my opinion, have no rights what so ever. People complain about the UK, but I'd rather live in a civilized society, where although our justice system stinks at times, at least we do have one!!!
Worth a read if you want to discover how barbaric some places on this earth are though.

Having been married to an Egyptian (Arab) Now divorced (thank God)
I could not put this book down,sadly I know its all true, how lucky I am to live in the West.
Every page of this book rang true.
If you are about to embark on romance or anything with an ARAB read this first... but I know their charm and lies will ring true.. please be warned..

Yet again a shocking insight to how women are still treated very badly in their country. Very good read indeed.

This book is absolutely amazing. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. It gives a real insight into the brutalities faced by ordinary people on a daily basis. It makes you realise how fortunate you are not to live in such a way. I would thoroughly recommend this book and have already looked to see if the author has written anything similar.

I thought I knew what to expect when I bought this book,but this book was far more shocking.the suffering and human rights abuses inflicted on the Saudi people is truly appalling.
