I listened to this book on CD The story itself was very interesting The things that happen are not even things I could imagine However, once the author comes to America, she is, at times, almost ungrateful about the support given to her This kind of turned me off to her. Farah s story is both harrowing in all that she has been through, all she has suffered and lost and inspiring in how she persevered and despite all the hardships and obstacles in her way found a way to forge a new life for her mother and herself Especially in today s climate of demonizing refugees, this should be required reading in schools. This was a riveting story that served as a window into a world I have no experience with The number and magnitude of obstacles the author faced in her childhood was stunning. This is a wonderful memoir At the tender age of seven, Farah Ahmedi stepped on a land mine, and she was put in the hospital The hospital did not have the resources to deal with her injuries so she was flown to Germany, where she had multiple surgeries She lived in Germany for two years without any family members remember she was seven She was sent back to her family, but the wars in her country were escalating Farah and her mother were forced to flee Afghanistan when the Taliban invaded K This is a wonderful memoir At the tender age of seven, Farah Ahmedi stepped on a land mine, and she was

much that they could do there, because they had no medication, no real bandages, nothing because of the war After 3 months there they barely kept her alive and her right leg got infected She was then

time The book is very depresing at parts but it si also happy.The book has a strong tone It shows what Farah wants and how she feels Farah is someone you can relate to even though what happened to her will never happen to one of us I don t think it will Anybody would like this book It may be about a girl but it is an amazing story It tells how the other side of the world works If you like reading about other countries you should definitly read this book Also with the war going on right now it could in a way explain how those people over there are feeling You know it is a good book because it was voted America s 1 book How this author got a book deal is possibly the best set up for a crappy book that I ve heard so far She won a contest to tell her story that was voted on by the public Guaranteed to be a best seller, yes, but does it have any content The story isn t particularly poorly written, but it does read like a long, extended livejournal entry But by her telling the story of

book that I ve heard so far She won a contest to tell her story that was voted on by the public Guaranteed to be a best seller, yes, but does it have any content The story isn t particularly poorly written, but it does read like a long, extended livejournal entry But by her telling the story of her life in Taliban controlled Afghanistan, how she stepped on a land mine and went to Germany to get treated, and the problems she now faces learning English and fitting in to American culture, you really can t help but feel like your problems are pretty small And people love that.One particularly interesting highlight of the book Apparently in some parts of Pakistan people still think Americans have slaves and that anyone going to America that wasn t born there is destined to be one This girl was the same age as one of my sons and it just seemed to make it personal I saw the contrast to the lives they both had lived, just because she happened to be born in a war torn country where life and limb were both disposable Her siblings were killed, her father was killed and her mother lost her ability to cope It was very moving and inspirational to see how she managed to make a new life for herself. I really enjoyed this book In some ways I was shocked that I enjoyed this book so much, because non fiction books usually don t appeal to me I typically look for books that have to do with things like ghosts or mysteries This book was not something that I planned on enjoying, because it wasn t my typical reading style To my surprise, this book introduced me to a new kind of writing that I enjoy I think that I loved this book so much because the events that took place in the book usually are I really enjoyed this book In some ways I was shocked that I enjoyed this book so much, because non fiction books usually don t appeal to me I typically look for books that have to do with things like ghosts or mysteries This book was not something that I planned on enjoying, because it wasn t my typical reading style To my surprise, this book introduced me to a new kind of writing that I enjoy I think that I loved this book so much because the events that took place in the book usually aren t events that happen in the typical person s life Especially not things that have happened to me It really opened my eyes not to just a new reading material that I enjoy, but to the rest of the world and how good of a life I have Losing a leg isn t something that I would find possible for me, but it showed me that tragic events like that do happen to people all around the world It wasn t something that I could personally relate to or understand, but it was something that I was interested in learning about Farah was so strong to be able to live her life and go to school and start walking again after she lost her leg, and it made me wonder if I would be that strong I couldn t even imagine having to go through such a traumatic event at such a young age, and then losing family members and moving to new places as well It was interesting to read about a real person s life that is so much different from mine But not only was it things that were shocking that I enjoyed, I also enjoyed that I could relate to parts of the story The whole story wasn t things that I have never gone through The traumatic events, I can t say I have experienced But, the problems that teenagers in America face every single day are things that I can relate to When Farah and her mother arrive in America, I could relate a lotto Farah and the book seemed a lot less shocking but yet it still kept me interested When she described her feelings, I knew what she was talking about because I too have felt them The fact that someone who has such a different life from mine still has felt the way I have is what kept me interested Not being accepted at school isn t something that only Farah experienced Not being as smart as the rest of the kids is a challenge that I also felt in my younger years I understand that the circumstances were much different for Farah, but it s interesting to know that I can relate to her in some ways.As you can see, this book has opened my eyes to new things It has made methankful andaware I know that have taken my life for granted, and I see that not everyone is so lucky to have everything handed to them But what I also learned was that no matter how different someone s life is, you can still have certain things in common with that person This book gave methan a new reading style to enjoy, it taught me lessons Just by telling her story, the author got through to me, and you could even say changed my life `READ DOWNLOAD ⇮ The Story of My Life: An Afghan Girl on the Other Side of the Sky ↼ Book by Farah Ahmedi, Tamim Ansary
