This review is from: I am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban (Kindle Edition)
I struggled to know what star rating to put for this book for a few reasons.
I enjoyed reading the book and felt I learned a lot that I didn't know previously. It certainly educated me in an engaging and interesting way.
My problem with the book is that approximately 75% of it is about her father - what he says, what he does and what he thinks. The bits that I really enjoyed reading about was her and her thoughts - which undeniably are interesting and thought provoking. She has the ability with her own voice to raise questions and get people thinking about difficult subjects. I find it just a little disappointing that a young lady who has done so much for the rights of females / girls would defer so much to her fathers word and see it as the only true voice in some matters.
Having said this, if she were to write a book herself, about herself and opinions, I would buy it and enjoy reading it. She is a very bright and engaging person and I really hope she find happiness and security for the future.
