This book gave me mixed feelings. Although I do believe in what Ali stands for, I am not so sure how much I actually liked her. I found her very self righteous. She is obviously very controversial. I mean there are not many people who basically condemn one of the largest religions in the world. It's so wonder that she had to go into exile. Sometimes I wonder how it is she is still alive.

That being said, Ali had led an extraordinary life! I wish at the end of the book she would have tied up a few loose ends -- one being the current state of the relationship with her parents. I was also amazed at how well she remembered all of the details.

In the end I would recommend this book, especially those who might be questioning their own faith.
