|Say you’re one of them |
by Akpan, Uwem.
This book is 4 short stories, all of which are heart-wrenching. Some were hard to read simply due to the style. I would recommend this to an adult reader or mature teen. posted Mar 7, 2012 at 11:28AM
|Oranges in the sun : short stories from the Arabian Gulf |
by Akers, Deborah S.
quick and easy to read, i enjoyed this book for the most part. I like seeing stories from a different culture than my own, grants some perspective i guess. Some stories didn’t seem to have a point really, but maybe i just didn’t get it. posted Mar 7, 2012 at 11:21AM
|The song of Roland |
by Merwin, W. S. 1927-
I thought this book was something else, so I picked it up. I finished it anyway, since i’d started it. Seems to me to be written in a style to cast an exorbitant amount of "glory" onto the white royalty but i’m sure that was normal at the time. anyway, wouldn’t read it again. posted Mar 7, 2012 at 11:19AM
|I speak for myself : American women on being Muslim |
by Ebrahimji, Maria M.
I enjoyed reading this. I think the editors did a good job in selecting stories for this book. It does well in showing a variety of strengths and perspectives of American muslim women. posted Mar 7, 2012 at 11:17AM
|Voices of change : short stories by Saudi Arabian women writers |
by Baqadir, Abu Bakr Ahmad.
this was an interesting read, there is not a lot of this type of literature out there. It was refreshing to read this type of story from Saudi women, who are often discouraged in speaking up for the world to hear. posted Mar 7, 2012 at 10:55AM
