So the day I am writing this, I was looking through my school library shelves and I found this! I also do not believe it has anything to do with religion as much as cultures.

I 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. She then got pregnant and the man disappeared.

Burned Alive by Souad

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. She was duped and this piece of filth then disappeared on hearing she was pregnant, leaving her to that terrible fate.

Still, I was surprised to know that in Palestine we still have something horrifying like this in the 60s. Her brother-in-law was responsible given the task to end her life. Furthermore, these very same Saudi women are allowed by their families to drive, if they are outside of the country!

See all 5 questions about Burned Alive…. But a future of agony and fear await her as her family still want her to die, and her only hope is to be rescued by foreign charity workers. 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.


What is the point of making up a story like this? Written in simple prose, Souad tells us the story of life in their village. View all 23 comments.

Burned Alive

She can easily be called a whore and a slut, for a mere whisper and rumor. Okay onto the story.

She soon fell in love with a man who took advantage of her believing he wants her, too. Brucixta hammer book review 3. I looked the book Attention everyone: Just because this may be fake does not mean that women are still not treated in this way and that honor killings aren’t an issue; they still are.

If you know anything about psychology, you understand that self worth has a huge bguciata on whether you tolerate things like this.

How very harshly and cruelly women are treated by men, even family. Some details just don’t add up. These little snippets are usually things like book or movie synopses. The modesty idea is taken to the extreme; women must work, work, work, work, work! Please don’t vica the book and waste time, feeling and energy on a very lame book. 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 would marry her.

I always had the idea it was in a remote village in Afghanistan or something. Honour killing is nothing new though, and there are cases happening in some cultures and belief. There are still men I am so glad I have read this book. I can’t believe that people bought it under the impression that it was a real story based on real facts! Jan 20, Pera rated it liked it Recommends it for: I liked it but mostly the beginning. She talked about how women are literally worth less than animals and that men hitting their wives and daughters are a normal occurrence there.


Women in the Middle East like in Palestine–and quite a few cultures in Africa– are considered less than a second class citizen. If it is true then its a five star.

May 14, chucklesthescot rated it liked it Shelves: Miraculously, she survived, rescued by women of her village, who put out the flames and euad her to a local hospital. I’m aware there is some degree of doubt as to veracity of this story. Ok I am brucitaa little confused and gave this book a 5 star rating thinking it bruiata true but have come to find out that most likly this is not a true account so I am giving it one star. I had a lot of questions and was interested in how she would cope in Europe, but suddenly she bguciata married and such.

We also know that children that watch their moms beaten, tend to be abusers so the men in vivw like this also have no hope of change at this time. And then your brain for no other reason than to be weird shoots a random memory or thought in your head. Kok terkesan mudah sekali?. Girls only can go to the market with someone older and look at their feets if they aren’t wed. Nov 16, A. I honestly don’t know how to rate this book. Being from the Middle East myself, she doesn’t have her facts right.

An execution for a ‘crime of honour’ was a respectable duty unlikely to bring about condemnation from others. Burned Alive is a shocking testimony, a true story of almost unbelievable cruelty.
