Publisher Description

The brutal murder of the Dutch film-maker Theo van Gogh in 2004 shocked the world. Shot and mutilated by a Muslim fanatic as he cycled to work, it was a stark reminder of the dangers of challenging an extreme Islamic worldview. It also changed the life of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, van Gogh's collaborator on the film that had offended his murderer. Born in Somalia and raised a Muslim, she had escaped an arranged marriage and made a new life as a Dutch parliamentarian, championing the reform of Islam and its attitude to women's rights. She now has twenty-four-hour police protection, but refuses to let that inhibit her willingness to speak out.

THE INFIDEL is Ayaan Hirsi Ali's astonishing story. Recounting the extraordinary transition from a third-world upbringing to her current status as one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, it is a truly remarkable autobiography that is as gripping as it is inspiring.

Spellbinding

For someone who was born and bred in the secular west this book is one hell of an eyeopener. The struggles this woman went through and the plight of the millions of women she represents is something we should all be aware of.

To choose reason over an upbringing of conditioning and dogma is "miraculous" and Ayaan Hirsi Ali tells her story admirably.

This is the kind of writing that could contribute to the salvation of the human race. I applaud her...

Outstanding

Wow this book is outstanding. What an inspiring story. Some people are truly special and I believe that this amazing lady is one of them. The world is a better place because of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

An amazing read, at the time of reading very apt to what was happening around the whole. Give you an insight into the Somali culture but I think one should be aware this is one person experiences perhaps could cause some offence. A very truthful and insightful account on Ayaan life . Highly recommend .
