The Somali-born former member of Parliament in the Netherlands discusses her life as a Muslim and her transition to atheism after living in the West. Ayaan Hirsi Ali's narration is heartfelt and determined, her voice fully revealing the internal conflicts involved in leaving her faith, a decision that strained relations with her family. Her harsh criticism of Islam is illustrated with stories from her own experiences of growing up with a "problem family," along with reports of practices such as honor killings. Her proposals for change—which include calling on Christian churches to actively convert Muslims—are controversial. However, Ali's account of her struggles to escape Muslim influence are fascinating, making for a compelling book. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
