I was very moved by this book. It is atrocious that hearts can harbor so much hate and intolerance.
Nadia Murad shares an intimate look into her life, and I must say, much if it is difficult to read. Her words paint pictures in my head that are hard to erase. I’m sad for her plight, and those who’ve suffered similar brutalities.
Not to take away from her story, but I wanted to skim through some of the beginning of the book. There was a lot of backstory, and I found it hard to stay fixated to the pages. The middle of the book horrified me. I was deeply moved and my empathy overflowed. The last third of the book brought some relief, though this story—and others like it—will haunt me.
This book is not for the faint of heart. It will likely horrify and scar you. But her bravery will inspire you.
