Samira and Samir: The Heart Rendering Story of Love and Oppression in Afghanistan (Original Title: Samira und Samir) - Siba Shakib - 2004 I am always amazed about the challenges women go through in order to live their lives as a man. But then I grew up in a culture where the difference isn't that large any more, I have the same human rights as men etc.The author was born in Iran but has lived in the Western world, mainly in Germany. Her books are written in German and this is a translation (I read the original so cannot vouch for the English versioin). Anyway, the book is very interesting. Read it. I have also started a thread about her other book: Afghanistan: Where God Only Comes to Weep
Siba Shakib - Afghanistan, Where God Only Comes to Weep (Original Title: Nach Afghanistan kommt Gott nur noch zum Weinen) - 2002 I wasn't sure where to place this book, the author herself calls it faction since some of the events happened to Shirin-Gol herself, otheres to other Afghan women.In any case, it's a great account of the struggles and problems women have to go through, not only in Afghanistan but anywhere in the poorer part of the world where war and/or disaster strucks. I thought this book was great, it gave a good insight into the lives of people in that part of the world where you usually just get political or military news.
