Why would the author takes us from a household that is struggling and falling apart. With a girl that is neglected by her father and her mother is mentally unstable. To a girl who compared to Mariam, lived in paradise and luxury. What was she trying to show by doing this. Both had unstable mothers, yet one came from a troubled home with barely any parents and lived in a literal dirty house. To one living in a city with a father and sometimes her mother, going to school, having a normal child life.
Just when you think the poor girl's situation couldn't get any worse the author throws another curve ball that makes Mariam's circumstance even more bleak. I am glad however that in the wake of her mother's suicide her father did take her in to his house. I was worried that this wouldn't be the case as he hasn't really seen to Maraim's needs in the past, especially when they weren't convenient on his terms.
Yea the author really just hit you with the struggles of someone's life, real early and very intense.
I never really understand the situation in the middle east. I figured they all were just unstable, everything just going a wall and everyone trying to take power etc. Well its all our faults the middle east is so unstable starting back to the English empire. We caused all the troubles of the in that region because we thought we could control it. Now Liala had to suffer for our doings. Thousands of people did...
Did Rasheed save liala out of kindness or did he do it cause he saw an opportunity. Cause the author made him seem like a heartless, soul retching person. Why would he was his time trying to save a hurt girl. on another point why does rasheed do what he does anyhow.
this book continues to get darker and darker as mariam life keeps getting worse, and the book continue to make me sad.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
