3.0 out of 5 stars More like a long essay than a romantic comedy, 18 May 2010
This review is from: Love in a Headscarf: Muslim woman seeks the One (Paperback)
When I heard about this book I was really excited to read it. It was about a British Asian Muslim looking for love.

I have mixed reviews:
The parts in which she tells her story are amusing. However I feel as though she has filled most of the book with philisopical notions which isn't what I was interested in reading. I also didn't like the way in which she would tell her story and then change to a totally differnt scene which sounded like an glorified essay on love. Honestly I skipped large chunks so I could get to the parts about her story and to find out who she ends up marrying! I did feel like the ending was also a bit of an anti-climax!
The reason why I gave it 3 stars is because I could relate to parts of it and I found some of it very funny especially the part where she is waiting for the guy in the coffee shop for 3 hours while he was watching cricket! There is also very few books written by Asian Muslims and I would encourage her to write some more but focus more on her writing techniques to make a "story" rather than focus on the english essays which she has written in oxford.

All in all, if your muslim living in the west its well worth a read!

:D
