Just like the Amish story, it is written by someone who isn't a part of the culture. The author, Fidelia Moore Parker, is a Christian who lived in a predominantly Moslem community in Nigeria, but writes about Saudi Arabia and America.
This book has a few grammatical and typographical errors, and the writing was very awkward. I didn't enjoy reading it, and I decided to not to finish it. It explained things more than showed it, especially the bad treatment of women. Here's a quote I found especially humorous.
"Well, that ain't what I've seen. Get your dirty tobacco foul breath and your loser buddies off my premises before I have y'all picked up for trespassing. Y'all aren't my customers here. For starters, y'all got no money, and second of all y'all are harassing my customers. So, y'all better be be gone before you wish y'all were never here. Be gone like bugs be gone, before I blink my eyes go on."
I got this book from Dorrance Publishing, Inc. in exchange for this review.
