4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting and Engaging Read, 7 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Minaret (Paperback)
Minaret is a very interesting and engaging narrative of a girl who loses the creature comforts of her former life but gains a new perspective as she enters into the Muslim faith. It is refreshingly written - whilst the author is descriptive, she is not overly so with the result that the novel has a very honest tone and seems to be written from real-life experience. For someone like me who is very uneducated in the ways of the Muslim community it was interesting to be presented with a view of quite a different way of life and to see Britain from someone else's perspective.

Aboulela has crafted a highly readable novel which centres around one girl's journey and which is thought provoking and original in it's execution. I'd highly recommend it.

Hi there,

I am writing from the BBC World Service, World Book Club radio show. We are looking for questions from fans of Minaret to ask Leila Aboulela on an upcoming show. Would you be interested in sending us a question or two?

Many thanks,

Frances Black, BBC World Service
