I was very interested in this book, until I read the reviews and realized it is fake! It felt like big parts were skipped. Miraculously, Souad survived rescued by the women of her village, who put out the flames and sua her to a local hospital. Education is imperative to changing things like this. So far, there is no independent evidence to support the publisher’s claim that the book is based on a true story or even that Souad exists at all. Jun 16, Cindy rated it did not like it.
I applaud her for speaking out about this taboo subject. Oct 18, Alabbadmohd rated it liked it.
However, I remind myself that whether Souad does or does not exist, such things do happen frequently to women in the world, and we can’t let any disappointment in a b When I first read this book years ago, I was drawn totally into the story. Souad claims to have survived the attempt without medical assistance despite having burns to 70 percent of her body – a medical impossibility a press release by the publisher of the US edition increased that figure to an even less plausible 90 percent.
And then brciata brain for no other reason than to be weird shoots a random memory or thought in your head. Souad hears of a possible arranged marriage to a neighbour and after spying on him, finds him attractive enough to start contact with.
I don’t feel particularly enlightened after finishing the book.
Her account of the botched burning that was supposed to end her life has been criticized as not accurate because the body of work is from ‘recovered memory.
To think that in this day and age people can act so barbaric and commit unspeakable crimes against loved ones is truly horrendous. You can get it for a penny plus shipping or if you want you can download it. Soaud also recalls her sister being choked with a telephone cord at a time when Palestinian villages did not have telephones.
Also, as another journaller mentioned, women are beaten and murdered here in the states. So the day I am writing this, I was loo Does this ever happen to you? And again, the silent ones are complicit in your fate.
The agony of her injuries I can’t even imagine but the betrayal of her family must have hurt just as much inside. Honour killing is nothing new though, and there are cases happening in some cultures and belief. Although the dynamics of the rural patriarchal family are spot on and the cruelty of the honor code is bguciata, there is something ‘false’ here that refuses to be dispelled. Culture is culture, traditions are traditions.
Want to Read saving…. Taylor concludes her analysis by saying that she thinks it is likely that Souad no longer knows who she is or how she came to be burned. Finished this book yesterday. Women have had to fight to get our rights everywhere, it is much slower in isolated places like this. Be thankful if you do not live in the country where Souad grew up!! When I first read this book years ago, I was drawn totally into the story.

Jan 25, Josephine rated it liked it. IF Souad exists, I wish she could come out and hold a press conference. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To stand up and be counted both as a woman and a human being and to be immensely proud of who she is and what she has accomplished But a future of agony and fear await her as her family still want her to die, and her only h Souad hears of a possible arranged marriage to a neighbour and after spying on him, finds him attractive enough to start contact with.
And we have studied a lot about these communities. We also know that children that watch their moms beaten, tend to be abusers so the men in areas like this also have no hope of change at this time. Does that make me ignorant? There are still men here white Christian ones, too that truly believe it is their right to beat their wives and there are women that stay with them.
But I still think, it all still depends on the mentality of the people involved, regardless of gender. For that matter, I doubt anyone could survive being burned that badly even if they got the best medical attention right away.
Souad did not always know of the events she recounts. If it’s a girl who’s born they kill her or even sometimes bury her alive. Quotes from Burned Alive.
I don’t know if it’s a true story, nothing can prove it. This is a fictional story which was dressed up as a memoir, and the alleged author vivva not even exist. Lists with This Book. I don’t care about it: I was suspicious of it when I read it because the book described things which were, quite frankly, impossible.
I can’t believe that people bought it under the impression that it was a real story based on real facts! If a particular belief, or code of conduct was truly ‘traditional’ to a culture, it would apply throughout the region, regardless of the social, educational, or economic circumstances.
