free read Dear Zari

E given as payment to end of a family feud to a life spent in a dark dusty room weaving carpets from a young girl being brought up as a boy to a woman living as a widow shunned by society Intimate emotion. I thought this book was going to be about women all over the Middle East and their different stories Where this was present it was also A LOT about the author herself I did not want to read a memoir but different stories I actually got tired of the author interrupting the other women s stories to talk about her own life and the radio show she does When I want to read only about the author I will get her biographyOther than the aforementioned complaint I found these women to be braver than anything I could imagine for myself I don t know how they do it I am so proud and incredibly blessed to have been born a Christian in America where I am free to make all of my own decisions in life I pray for these women and am truly amazed at their resolve

Dear Zari

Moving enlightening and heartbreaking Dear Zari gives voice to the secret lives of Afghan women For the first time Dear Zari allows these women to tell their stories in their own words from the child brid. This book is disappointing because it could have been And that is the heart of the issue Without a doubt Zaraghunna Kargar deserves acclaim simply for her work on the BBC s Afghan s Woman s Hour Yet The central problem with this book why it doesn t live up to the promise is that it doesn t know what it wants to be It can t decide if it wants to be a memoir or a collection of personal experiences And because of this it suffers The flaw shows up when Kargar interjects her personal story into the stories of the other women Undoubtedly there are reasons for this but I can t figure out what they are unless it is to try to relate or connect the woman s stories to those that live outside of Afghan Kargar does this by relating how her life as an Afghani women whose family fled during the Taliban s regime as well as the pressure to keep to traditions when she lived in the West This in of itself could be an interesting memoir but forced and rammed into comparison with the stories of the other women at worse it cheapens the books at best it makes Kargar look at a whiner It doesn t work the only thing worse would be a Western woman trying to compare her parent s preference for a boy child It would undoubtedly be true but there is a difference between that and your parents making you are a boy or your mother debating about suicide because of it Disappointing sadly

    I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First ReadsKnowing relatively little about modern Afghanistan other than what little I've heard on the news I was interested to hear accounts of what life is really like for Afghan women Kargar gathered the stories presented in this book while working for the BBC and producing a radio program called the Afghan Woman's Hour She spends a fair amount of the bo

    I don't know how to properly rate a book that is so unpleasant in its honesty and its bleakness The book itself is well written poignant approachable and important The subject matter is depressing hopeless infuriating and incomprehensible It leaves the reader wondering is there a normal Afghan experience Is there an Afghan family unit with ties of loyalty fidelity and love? Because after reading these stories you are left jaded and cynical

    An amazing book of women of Afghanistan Portrayals of women who are locked in a world where they are neither valued nor respected These women were treated as property and with suspicion and having almost no freedom of movement The book raised several uestions for me including how typical are these portrayals? why are women so unfeeling towards other women? and what lasting impact has the Afghan Women's Hour had on the lives of women in the
