I don t read a lot of non fiction books Not because I don t like them, but just because I don t find a lot of them that sound interesting to me For example, I have the memoir of Hilary Clinton, but it just bored me after a view chapters and I quit reading it But when I heard about this book about Raif Badawi, written by his wife Ensaf, I decided I definitely needed to read this book.I m writing this review almost twenty four hours after I finished reading Raif Badawi The Voice of Freedom and I find it difficult to write my thoughts about this book down Reading this book makes it obviously clear how good we have it here in the Western world In the beginning of this book we get to read how life is for a young woman in Saudi Arabia, and let me tell you it s horrific Woman are not allowed to come outside without being completely covered, they aren t allowed to drive a car and they can t work I was completely in shock when I read this But that s not the only shocking thing about this read Ensaf and Raif had to overcome a lot of obstacles to just be together And when they were finally happy and living their life with their children, the trouble really began Raif started a website on which he just expresse
I m also currently running an INTERNATIONAL GIVEAWAY on Twitter now Come enter to win a paperback of this extraordinary book THE REVIEWEnsaf Haidar s Raif Badawi, The Voice of Freedom My Husband, Our Story is the kind of book that sticks with you Having finished it in or less one sitting, I couldn t stop thinking about it for a long time Days after having turned the final page of this powerful non fiction piece, I was scouring the web for Badawi s work, Haidar s interviews and updates on the trial.I was obsessed.What started out as an endearing love story of Ensaf Haidar s and Raif Badawi s secret courtship soon takes an unexpected turn This candid first person account tells the story of one man s struggle to fight back against systematic injustice within his own society Religion and faith are often exploited by political leaders to drive their own agendas Raif echoes these very sentiments on his blog when he calls for a separation between religion and state Free Saudi Liberals, Badawi s blog and an open forum of sorts raises important questions about the existing justice system and encourages citizens to speak of reform This soon draws the attention of Saudi public officials who threatened and harassed Badawi to shut down his site Raif s own father expressed his disapproval of his son s
Appalling story of the Saudi persecution of her husband and her family I found the story of how they got together despite the bizarre enforcement of the separation of men and women and blocking from the men in her family fascinating. WE, WHO ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH to live in democracies, accept freedom of speech and the civil liberties that we enjoy as our natural and inherent rights But we are lucky these rights are, in fact, privileges.Raif Badawi The Voice of Freedom, Ensaf Haidar s moving love letter to her activist husband, brings this point home Badawi, an activist and founder of the website Free Saudi Liberals, is currently imprisoned in Saudi Arabia on several charges, including insulting Islam and apostasy, his sentence 10 years in prison, a fine and 1,000 lashes, the first 50 of which have been administered already.The book, which Haidar wrote with Andrea C Hoffman, could be read as a straightforward love story Certainly the strength of the Badawis love for each other is made clear from the moment the couple met , via a misdialled phone call made to a mobile that Haidar wasn t even meant to have, through their illicit courtship in a country in which too much freedom is seen as a risk , their subsequent marriage, which took place despite family opposition, to Ba
Ensaf s account is simple, candid and powerful just like what we see of her on the web It made for an excellent weekend read, with answers to many of the questions I had regarding Ensaf and Raif Badawi what sort of
I feel ignorant not knowing about this story I feel lucky to live in a country where I have free speech and rights as a woman. I learned about the plight of Ensaf s husband, Raif, via Amenesty International I have signed many petitions for his release and for the punishment of a further 950 lashes not to be carried out and would urge all readers of this review to please sign such petitions I wanted to find out about Ensaf and her life with Raif so I bought this book a few months ago I had deferred picking it up as I felt it would be such a painful story to read and needed to be in the right frame of mind to read it I shouldn t have done so as, although it is clearly a very moving story, she is a strong and proud woman and records the details of her life with Raif but does not go into his punishment in an overly graphic way.The story takes you through her early life, meeting Raif, their life together and their physical separation through forced circumstances.Ensaf is clearly very careful
This is great reading especially in light of the disappearance of another Saudi dissident in the Their embassy in Istanbul Raif has not been killed, but you can learn what the government does with people who disagree with Saudi dictatorship.very good book with stories told by a supportive and ins
An unforgettable book that I will carry with me for a long time Man s inhumanity to man is the first thought that came to mind when I finished Raif s story This is a must read for anyone interested in world politics and for those who believe in human rights for all. Good story but as she admits herself she isn t a strong literary stylist.
