Infidel - Ayaan Hirsi Ali ****/*

An amazing book about the life of a woman who grew up a devout Muslim in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia. For me, it was an incredible insight into Islam from a woman's perspective who went on to be a fierce critic of Islam after she fled to The Netherlands and became a prominent controversial political figure in Dutch parliament.
Highly recommend, and I intend to go on to read The Caged Virgin, a collection of essays she has written on the matter also.
Good article

I just finished reading 'Infidel' and it is indeed an incredible book. I've always espoused the standard Liberal position that Islam is a noble and respectable religion, but I have to say that, as revealed in this book, its tribal roots and traditions are in collision with standard notions of dignity for women. A real eye-opener.
