5.0 out of 5 stars The pilots daughter, 16 April 2006
This book is an amazing account of a child growing up close to Saddam and his influence on her and her family.

The closeness of her family and the effect it had on them all constantly living in fear and never able to be themselves.

Anyone who ever had any doubt about Saddams regime and what it was like to live under it should read this book.

I thought this book was well worth reading and even more special that Zainab lived through it to put her efforts into helping other woman around the world affected by war.

A reminder of how lucky some of us are to live in a free world able to express ourselves without fear of retribution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life is but a breath, 16 April 2006
A powerful sad story told through the eyes of a child of how members of a family lived through the horrors of the Pol Pot regime to eventutally escape to the west and make new lives for themselves.

After reading this I still find it hard to believe that so many innocent people could have been tragically murdered by the Khmer Rouge while the rest of the world did nothing.

This book is a wonderful reminder of the power of humans to endure and survive and this is highly recommended reading

The style of writing told through the eyes of the young Asrei

is wonderful and you feel for the pain she has been through to loose her mother and father to the hands of this regime
