Just when you thought this was going to be another boring detailed analysis of Islamic theology regurgitated from some "official source" that simply provides minutae details of how to do a Hajj with all decorum and respect, comes a fresh and open look at one woman's Hajj to Mecca. It's a fun and interesting fast read that tells it like it is, from the travel bloopers and blunders at the airport, to the various tours and bus drivers she encournters, Jane relates her experiences in a friendly and open manner. Short and sweet, I couldn't put it down until the very end. Most of us in the US will never experience this adventure, and Jane truly makes this an interesting adventure. I know that I want to go with her next time. This is truly a "tell it like it really is" book.

Having soared to Mecca in Mohammad Asad's The Road to Makkah, I looked forward to a modern and a woman's perspective. Straitwell's 'experience' of the Muslim holy pilgrimage is so bogged down in trivialities and me, me, me that opportunities for insights into the human spirit, beyond the logistic frustrations of such a mass collective happening, are lost. Trite and disappointing non-event.
