I must admit that I had to force myself through some of this book, but later on I realized that the earlier portion was important to understanding the changes in the author's life (she refers to it as her own personal enlightenment). It wasn't until Chapter 10 (page 183) where things really began to come together. It was really worth the effort.

Although Ayaan's story was fascinating, her main point came later in the book: subsidizing Moslem immigrants in Europe, so that they can support their own parallel sub-culture, has caused the problems we see today.

This is a beautifully written, incredibly brave and deeply moving autobiography. A must read for anyone!
