I'll underscore the sentiment to not let Fallaci's later writings about Islam dissuade you from reading this work. Fallaci was a terror to powerful dictatorial forces in both her life and her writing. A MAN is a masterpiece of political fiction and I want to underscore that word: political. A combination of biography, autobiography, and fiction (and the boundaries aren't clear) this screed rips her soul open and exposes itself to the reader. It's a political story, and she writes with political intent and does so with a unique ferocity. One of the other reviewers says that they received a copy from her during student strikes in Poland (I am jealous) and that it changed their life. Me too. My daughter is named after Oriana Fallaci.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Evan Schwartz on January 14, 2010
If you feel like you are fighting the world, like right now it's you against everyone, then this book is for you. You'll relate to the character, you'll love the plot, and you will really get the message.
If you do not happen to feel like that, most likely the message you will get is that this is a book to be read at another time or by other people.

Overall, I really just did not find the book nearly as "soul-baring" and intense as the previous reviewers had described it. It wasn't terrible, but it was a bit of a let down.
