The uncertainty of knowing of Maryam and Dr Joe were the characters involved in the prologue that kept me on edge throughout the book. Raj has drawn on his own experiences and observations to deliver a novel that provides insight to life for women particularly but also for men in Saudi Arabia. I puzzled over some of the sub-plots as they didn't seem to lead anywhere, nor to contribute to the main story. Perhaps Raj is leaving the way open for a further book in which these plots will be explored. Having said this, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

Took awhile to get going & hold my interest. Would not recommend it to anyone as I needed to force myself to continue reading. Read "White Dog Falling from the Sky" or "Cutting for Stone" instead.

One needs to realize how foul many words and expressions are in this book. I could not read it past, maybe, twenty pages.

I loved this book. Its dichotomies and contradictions from both female and male perspectives even though they are devout Muslims. At times I found it almost unbelievable what some of the woman get up to with the risk of death if found out.
The men can be loving husbands and fathers but get up to the most atrocious behavior 'haram' and being men think they are above the law....Sharia Law........!!
I am blessed to live in Australia
