Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

After a harrowing childhood lived according to a particularly strict interpretation of Muslim law, Somali-born Ali (Infidel) escaped to Europe rather than move to Canada to marry a man she'd never met. Arriving in Holland, she soon became an international cause célèbre for her willingness to publicly denounce the uglier sides of Islamic culture, particularly as in certain regions it oppresses women and girls. Many personal stories are repeated from her earlier accounts, but here Ali adds the story of her immigration to the U.S., and as always, her writing can be moving, as she bares heartrending moments such as her father's death. But with this third memoir, she has become tiresomely repetitive, and her wholesale condemnation of an entire religion and the multiple cultures it has engendered is so sweeping and comprehensive, and her faith in Western values (particularly her romantic view of Christianity) is so wide-eyed, that the book ultimately reads like a callow exercise in expressing the author's own sense of aggrievement.

From Bookmarks Magazine

While a few critics embraced Hirsi Ali for her intellectual integrity and bravery, most found her indictment of Islam too hard to swallow. Several reviewers argued that it is nearly impossible to generalize about a religion with more than one billion adherents. Others wrote that Hirsi Ali seems both oblivious to situations where Islam has brought peace and meaning into people's lives and naive about American culture, nomadic as she has been. But even the strongest critics of the book found something to admire in Hirsi Ali's personal story of survival and self-transformation. That said, if you haven't read her first memoir, start there--it's by far the better book.
