    Wow this book left me speechless It leaves this lump in my throat and is at the same time very inspiring With her story Waris Dirie brings awareness to the terrible tradition of female genital mutilation in Africa Makes me feel so blessed to be living in a country where I an live a self determined life.

    There are three reasons why I chose to pursue Desert Flower by Waris Dirie Her book showed up as a GoodReads recommendation with a summary about the author overcoming tremendous odds in Africa I delved into the book and realized that I recognized the author to be an international super model and, once I started reading the book, its contents were so compelling that the text was difficult to set aside for even a little bit of time Desert Flower is an autobiographical account of how Waris Dirie su [...]

    brilliant book, I could not put it down once I started reading it.I read it within 24 hours, and found myself mesmerised by this womans story, and how she overcame obstacles that most of us wouldn t dream of, to get to where she is today.Without going into too much detail, she managed to convey the horror and trauma of being subjected to female genital circumcision, a practise that causes problems, than it prevents, and convinces you, that as a woman, we have a duty, irregardless of where we co [...]

    In my opinion this is a tremendously important book It is not just a wonderful memoir and a tale of amazing bravery of Waris Dirie, but also an detail account of FGM from the perspective of a victim The reason why I picked up this book was mainly because I wanted to learn something about FGM I did learn something , the kind of information that is personal not just theoretical In addition, Waris does not only tell her story She tells the story of other women she had known that have suffered and [...]

    This is an autobiography of a very resilient and head strong Somali woman who up and left her desert nomadic clan She was to be betrothed, as a young teenage girl birth dates were not recorded in her tribe , to a much older man She was having none of that She trekked solo to Mogadishu and from there managed through relatives, to get a posting as a maid at the Somalia London embassy Eventually she entered the world of high fashion modeling Her Somalia narrative was intensely interesting, but her [...]


    Inevitablemente me recuerda a La masai blanca y no lo digo solo por ser la biograf a de una mujer y que la tem tica sea africana, tambi n porque est escrito de manera corriente, informal, con sus propias palabras Muchas veces desarrollando poco y resumiendo mucho Pero lo importante de este libro no es la calidad literaria sino la historia que cuenta Es la biograf a de una mujer somal con mucha determinaci n, fuerte, con decisi n y car cter, que no se ha dejado vencer por las adversidades y ha lu [...]

    There is a lot to admire about Waris Dirie and her story Raised in a nomadic Somali family, apparently raped at age four and then mutilated in a female circumcision ritual at age five, Dirie bravely ran away from home at thirteen to avoid being married off to an old man Dirie endured a great many trials and tribulations finding her way to Mogadishu and to her long lost relatives, a string of unsuccessful living arrangements, working as a maid in London and then as kitchen help in McDonalds with [...]

    I m always excited when I read biographies, I m always rooting and like show them what you can , oh shit, you are going to fight through this hun and be so utterly proud of their achievements and their outlook on life The same goes for this book Waris Dirie is an admirable woman She went through shit, and yeah her personality would clash with a lot of people I probably couldn t handle her, I like quite people like myself but she worked for everything she got and had her portion of luck she deser [...]

    I picked up this book on pure chance, when it popped up as a recommendation Since I m interested in culture clash and the African experience, I started reading it Waris Dirie, who was an international model, came from the life of a desert nomad in Somalia Fleeing in order to escape an arranged marriage to a much older man when she was just fourteen, Waris extraordinary flight across the desert leads first to the country s capital of Mogadishu, and then to London, where she worked as a house serv [...]

    Dirie s story really shocked me I remember when I first heard for this book a teacher told us and I thought to myselfI have to read this book I ve read it two years ago It s so heartbreaking knowing the world is so different in some places Things, that really shouldn t happen to anyone, sadly DO happen.


    Anne Russell wrote This is an easy read that gives one insight into female circumcision One finishes the book with an interest to learn about the issue and how effective the work the UN has done It also provides an angle on the illegal immigrant story that is not as grim as so many tales are For those of us living overseas one can appreciate her reflections in the end about being a nomad yet being very loyal to Somalia despite its problems I read this memoir a couple of years back I agree Dirie [...]

    Ein SEHR WICHTIGES Buch Am liebsten w rde ich es jedem in die Hand dr cken, mit der w rmsten Empfehlung es zu lesen.

    Waris had an extraordinary story to tell but the narration left much to be desired I suppose writing an autobiography is so subjective Opens one up to scrutiny What to put in What to leave out The story left a bitter taste in my mouth.From page 15 to page 224, the narration is flat, flat, flat As much as her events are chronologically laid out, there was no hook for me as the reader I kept thinking where s the rising action The one event that would lead to the peak of her story Nothing Even her [...]

    I love this book Waris time in Somalia as a child was my favorite part It was both disturbing and lovely and wholly real What I also love about this book is the way this book addressed Genital Mutilation Discussion about problematic tribal rites like female genital mutilation is best done from within the culture as well as from the outside If there is no point of view from the inside all it looks like is a bunch of outsiders calling a group of people barbarians When people feel disrespected, peo [...]

    Worte, die das Herz erreichen zum zweiten Mal gelesen

    Ich kann mich noch daran erinnern, als meine Eltern vor Jahren den Film gesehen haben, als ich noch kleiner war, und ich nicht so wirklich verstanden habe um was es geht, als ich dann das Buch in der Bibliothek gesehen habe, dachte ich das es doch lesenswert w re, also habe ich es ausgeliehen Waris Dirie ist eine unheimliche starke Frau, mit diesem Buch einen wahnsinnigen Schritt in die richtige Richtung tut, sie erz hlt hier nicht nur ihre Geschichte, die mich sehr ber hrt hat, sondern betreibt [...]

    I have very mixed feelings about this book, mainly because even with my most vivid imagination I could not imagine what that woman went through Not just her but hundreds of women that even today have to go through this barbaric ritual to prove themselves untouched, innocent To become the ultimate symbol of a good women This book made me think a lot about the life we live and the conveniences we have The things we take for granted, for something normal that all people have, yet we do not realize [...]

    Certainly worth the read It is a short, easy, and intersting autobiography I really enjoyed the first 150 ish pages and, despite the human rights issues at the end, I was less impressed with the conclusion Still, quite good with an important message.
