It was a great read and certainly made me appreciate how easy we have it here when it comes to School's/College's and how we take that for granted. Its only when something is taken from you that you realise how much it means to you and this is what one of the things Malala talks about in her book. I finished this book within a couple of days. How life was in Pakistan under Taliban rule really gripped me that I couldn't put the book down.
I am glad that she has appeared on numerous talk shows in America and spreading the message of education for all boys and girls as their basic rights in countries, such as Pakistan. I fully recommend this book to young adults/teenagers and maybe they'll realise that they have something incredible in this country where they might not have had this privilege in a third world country to achieve their full potential.
Another valuable point of the book is its insights into Islam as it is practised by a devout but not fundamentalist family and their emphasis on prayer. I have always found that prayer unites people of any creed and 'I am Malala' confirmed this opinion, (I write from a Christian perspective). I hope that faith and community uphold the family now in their new home and that they will continue to be ambassadors for Islam as a religion of peace - needed in our multi-cultural society today.
Thank you, Malala, for a wonderful courage and a witness that the pen and the word are far mightier than the sword.
Heart-wrenching, thought-provoking and moving, this is a book everyone should read.
Her narrative is written in the first person, recounting all the political and military events that she has experienced. The violence and social changes are written in great detail which does slip towards being purely journalistic towards the beginning of the book - I know that this girl is amazing but cannot possibility have remembered some of the events very early in her life to the level of detail that they are explained without the help of others. There are times when the co-author takes over too much so that we lose the emotions of Malala which are so key to the story and seem to flow out of the book at other times. The history lesson is important but an autobiography should be about the subject. Having said this, I understand the temptation as the Pakistan story is so dramatic and so key to Malala's life - maybe there was a better way to present the story by switching between first person and third person in a way of acknowedging the co-authors knowledge input.
As the book gets to about halfway, it becomes much more personal. Malala begins to find her place in society and the horrors of living under Taliban rule are magnified when compared to usual teenage angsts such as falling out with friends.Read more ›
The four stars are for the second half of the book, which is when I began to engage with Malala's story. When she begins to write from personal recollection, the prose becomes more vivid and she able to make the reader feel the frustration of living under the Taliban. For me, the most compelling part is the aftermath of the shooting when she was being treated in Birmingham, at first without any of her family beside her.
I admire Malala's courage and wish her well, but I fear it will be a long time before she able to return to her beloved Swat Valley.
