I am Malala – A Review

I am Malala – A Review

My heart raced when I held “I am Malala” in my hands after waiting for it for more than two weeks. I was still in the middle of reading “The Rape of Nanking” (also a great non-fiction) when the “best non-fiction” of 2015 arrived at my door step. As soon as I got it, I wanted to start gobbling up every word written in it. And as matter of fact, I did! I stopped reading the other book and soon enough started to read “I am Malala” intently - even though I had to go to work after few hours. And I have to tell you, the wait was worth it. Every single word I encountered in the book gave me goose-bumps. It really is a page turner. And the fact that it is an autobiography is unbelievable. It might look like an innocent account of the situation of Swat Valley in Pakistan under Taliban’s rule by a little girl at first. But, it is much more.
