Last year I read "The Little Coffee shop of Kabul" - you will find my review here. The book and her lovely style of writing really stayed with me and when I saw her new book in Exclusive books when it was my turn to buy for the Bookclub, it was the first book I picked up.
I am no lover of biographies or autobiographies. Fiction is my poison of
choice. And while I loved The little coffee shop of Kabul, it is in the
fiction realm. This book is definitely and autobiography but one that
reads very easily- almost like fiction. It does however deal with the harsh reality of what really happened at the end of the previous book and why she left Kabul. Dealing with all that and Post traumatic stress disorder is the real crux of the book - mixed with the lightness of making a new life in Mexico with it's harsh realities of poverty and suppression. I really enjoyed reading it and
Deborahs' life story and never for a moment lost the slightest bit of
interest. A very personal and enjoyable read.
Now I have to find the very first of her books "The Kabul Beauty school" which she refers to often.
So who has read any of Deborah Rodriguez' books? Or did I spark some interest? And who likes to read book reviews or not?
