5.0 out of 5 stars Down to Earth, and Inspirational, 16 Oct. 2013

This review is from: I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban (Hardcover)
I am Malala is an easy to read account of not just Malala's life, but the context of her life which really helps the reader understand her journey. It encapsulates the journey of her family, a background into the events leading to Taliban influence in Swat valley and a first person insight into Pashtun culture.

For me it is a masterpiece in social history. It really gives a sense of how different a world Malala grew up, and of the struggles people face in Swat. Furthermore, it humanises, gives insight into the narrative of Taliban influence in the North West of Pakistan, something which - despite being an avid viewer of mainstream news - I didn't fully appreciate. And it brings to life the terrible struggle that the citizens of Swat valley have been subject to.

But the most important aspect of the book - in my view - is how genuine it reads. Written from the heart, by a young lady who is driven by her heart.
