Girls were worth less than a cow in the eyes of society.

The women do not know better suas they just accept it. As an afterthought I was thinking about a book I read a few years ago about a young girl in the Middle East who was doused in kerosene and set on fire to protect her family’s “honor”.

Suad (Author of Bruciata viva)

You’re in a lull in time, bored, just thinking. On the other hand, I feel that t This is either a hoax or a badly written memoir, incompletely recalled by the subject of this story, or purposefully altered to protect her identity. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It’s my strong opinion that there’s enough here to help us understand the type of environment that would condone these despicable acts against any human being.

The childhood was horrible, the burning was unthinkable, the collusion to finalize the act by both family and community boggles the mind, and the psychological effects continue to dog her.

Suax am relieved to say that, as a twelve year old, I took so much away from this book; politics, the corruption of some families, and the lives that are looked down upon so fiercely. Souad is the pen name of a Palestinian woman who is believed to be living in Europe. After a long journey, Souad tells her story how she escaped this society and was introduced to a world where women equal men.


Burned Alive

It’s a novel, and not a very good one. Girls only can go to the market with someone older and look at their feets if they aren’t wed. A truelly burciata story.

Why would I waste my time reading a fake memoir? She was burned alive.

It is facetious to say we respect the ‘cultural traditions’ of a particular country or peoples when it is clearly not a ‘tradition’ but an oppression masquerading as tradition. More than five thousand cases of such honour killings are reported around the world each year and many more take place that we hear nothing about. In an atmosphere like this one, you can only imagine what would happen to a girl who loses shad virginity, let alone gets vivs before marriage.

Preview — Burned Alive by Souad. It was a major punishment for me to read the whole book, and was just hoping that it will finish as soon as possible. Jul 27, okyrhoe rated it did not like it Shelves: It is okay because they are men and the women must have I honestly don’t know how to rate this book. What so many of us in the modern world seem to forget is that the rest of the world does not “progress” at the same rate.

We also know that children that watch their moms beaten, tend to be abusers so the men in areas like this also have no hope of change at this time. He poured gasoline on her and set her on fire.

An execution for a ‘crime of honour’ was a respectable duty unlikely to bring about condemnation from others. Jan 20, Pera rated it liked it Recommends vica for: Her brother-in-law was given the task of meting out her punishment.


You can get it for a penny plus shipping or if you want you can download it. Does this ever happen to you? It was her ‘boyfriend’ that made me the angriest in this book for persuading her that he intended to ask for her hand in order to get the sex he wanted, knowing that she would be shamed and shunned for not being a virgin for her future husband. Sorry, that person’s shelf is private.

That’s how she fell in love with the neighbour who broke his wedding promise after he got her pregnant. Miraculously, she survived, rescued by women of her village, who put out the flames and took her to a local hospital.

If it wasn’t I would give it a star and less if I could for using a situation like this to make money. It speaks of amazing courage and fortitude and of one woman’s determination to survive. The agony of her injuries I can’t even imagine but the betrayal of her family must have hurt just as much inside. A book that makes you sad and mad, but you just have to keep reading it. Souad at 17 was condemned by her family when she became pregnant by the ‘boy next door,’ which occurred because she fervently hoped and believed that he w A staggering number of women and girls are killed each year, by members of their own families, in a practice collectively referred to as honor killing.

So, well, this book is not for the weak-hearted.
