A good read

This book definitely makes for a good read and I was engrossed for the initial chapters. the torture and double standards kept at the pir, if it is indeed a true story, I would sympathize, with what the inspiration of the author has endured and offered. For a Coffee table reader like me, i must say, several cups were had in continuity. It gets confusing and somewhat nonsensical in the fall of the book, but The end is surprising and endearing.

Tehmina's a brilliant author

Such a heart wrenching book yet you can't stop reading at any point. Your heart will bleed, yet the author prevents the book from becoming too gory. While reading, it is very clear that all of this is reality and women are certainly going through torture like this. Hats off to authors like Tehmina who are gutsy enough to take on 'holy men' and expose them. I would recommend you to read this book because it isn't a book for feminists, but for anyone who is even slightly interested in the societal conditions in Pakistan.

An eye-opener!

This is not a novel that exposes the truth about Islam as many may mistake it to be. It is evident in the story that religion plays no part in the sins of a man. It is rather a depiction of how a man in power exploits his religion and preys on ignorant people who have blindly put their faith on such religious leaders with the hope of salvation. Durrani's prose style is remarkable and once you start, you won't be able to stop without completing the book, wondering what horror will take place next.

It is brutal, excessively violent, horrifying and though it may seem that the author has exaggerated at parts, it will open your eyes to what really goes on behind locked doors in the villages of Pakistan. After all, the truth is always bitter.
