Description

Flipkart Official Review

I guess there is inspiration just about everywhere – it is to you where you choose to find it and stand up for what you believe in. Malala did that. She stood up for what she believed in and was shot by the Taliban. Call it a miracle or a game of fate – she survived the shooting. She lived and she tells her story in her book, “I am Malala” with Christina Lamb.


The book could very well have become sentimental. However, Malala does not let it. She focuses not only her life story but also about what she believes in – which is Education for girls and women and how that can change the world. The book is about how to not give up hope and stand in the face of adversity, for what you believe in. “I am Malala” is not just about one girl – it is about one sixteen year old girl who stood up perhaps for everyone else as well, who stood up for her basic right to education

 

The story of a young girl who battles against odds to live her dream of getting educated is what I Am Malala is about. Malala’s survival story is sure to create a storm of emotions within and is truly inspiring.

Summary of the book

I Am Malala tells the story of a young girl who survived the Taliban shooting in Swat Valley and stood for her right to education. The book focuses not only on Malala’s story but also her fight for the right to education of other girls.

The book further focuses on how Malala’s family supported her and stressed on her education in a society which crowns sons. Not only is the book gripping, but inspiring as well and leaves you with a feeling of remorse for taking what we get easy for granted.

All u need to know about malala

this is the story of malala (obvious from the title). we all know her by the accident she had and her miraculous recovery, but this book is more than that. it tells about the start of taliban, the communities of pakistan, the feelings and fears of the locals during the taliban's reign, etc, etc. malala's accident happens at the end, and then its all about how she recovers, with whose help and support, etc. It is mainly about the feeling of a teenager towards her country and the love for it, a...

I Love Malala

I Love Malala for what she is and for what she stands for. Thanks to her supportive father who inspired her to fight against the injustices done to young girls of Swat, by abandoning them of their right to education. A youngest recipient of Nobel peace prize and indeed a brave girl that she is. Coming to the content of this book, it is simply an autobiography of a young girl fighting for her rights and in turn facing dire consequences. I think one should have a copy of this book to inspire ma...

Mind-blowing purchase

When I started reading the book little had I imagined that I would finish it in one go. I finished the book in 5 hours. The last two chapters were really fantastic. A life story lucidly described. It is a very inspiring account of a young school girl fighting for education in a hostile setting. I recommend the book for everyone to learn about the Taliban and their cruelty. It is a page turner and makes very interesting reading.

Written with a kid's perspective

This book is written with a kid's perspective. It innocently describes Swat, the daily school and the growing up. One should note that the protagonist was hardly in her teenage when she was shot. Her bravery is raw, clearly she is, even at that age, a stubborn campaigner for education. This book is inspirational particularly for children. Though a little too much of religion is thrown in there but I imagine that it was an integral part of her childhood and thus is a necessary part of the book...

Really good book

I have finished 1/3 rd of the book . This book has given a good insight into not only life of Malala but insight to the real Pakistan and Pakistani politics. Its worth reading about this Brave Girl whose secular thoughts have really impressed me . She has set a good example not only for all the girls in Swat valley but also for all the girls around the world who fight daily for the right of education .

One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change

Completed this book Yesterday, The book was optimistic, inspiring on the other side it doesn't have the potential what we expect. The initial parts of the book was interesting as we dont know about malala & family. Later from the other parts its the same what you see in the media about taliban, how malala escaped from the death in birmingham. Her ideas were really interesting as a reality no one knows how its works, the way she speaks to media is really interesting, I personally feel this gir...

This changed the way I think about Pakistan and its people.

It is a good read. Written through the eyes of a young girl it gives a different account of Pakistan. It talks about day to day life and poliitical development's through a child's eyes.
The numerous Pashtu customs she decribes are also interesting and bear resemlance to many Indian ones.
Overall this book really changed the way i think about Pakistan and its people. Must read!
Brave girl and even braver is her Father.
