MY FORBIDDEN FACE is a true story written by a 16-year-old girl who faithfully recorded events over a five-year period as they happened to her and her family in their country of Afghanistan after it was taken over by the Taliban.

She counts her blessings many times in her short book: her family are rich enough not to be homeless or starving, they can afford gas cylinders.

Latifa - My Forbidden Face. Growing Up Under the Taliban: A Young Woman’s Story. The first time I picked up this book, I found it quite difficult to get into, so I put it down. I finally read it all the way through once I had finished A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini (author of the Kite Runner) which gave me a good background into the political and historical events that have shaped today’s Afghanistan.

When reading this book I was hoping for a detailed personal account of a woman under Taliban rule, and in a way that is what this book delivered. This book does share some small personal accounts of life under the Taliban, of the atrocities committed by Talib soldiers, and of the repression of women and of freedom itself.

However, due to what I can only assume was poor editing, the story is very jumbled. It reads as a string of consciousness which was recounted to an interviewer who was probing for information for the story, rather than a finished book. I thought this might be in order to get a current release in 2001 following Taliban attacks on America, but when I saw the publication date was 2008, I have no explanation. I believe this book would be five stars if it was edited into chronological order of the girl's life events and if it was proof-read a few more times. There are many homonyms which are confusing and I assume the result of a language barrier, dropped letters in spelling the same word twice in one paragraph, etc. I think a good editor could easily fix these problems.

I did learn a lot while reading this book, but it was usually by looking up terms I didn't understand on wikipedia and learning more there. I must credit the book for sparking my interest in the struggles of the Afghani people and learning more about the general civil war going on in Afghanistan itself, fueled by many foreign influences who seem to have little understanding of the situation.

Bottom line: I'd recommend it to a friend, but not before recommending a book like Infidel, which is a chronological account of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, born between three governments in Somalia, her life, and the global events taking place around it. Although this is a book taking place in a different region, I believe it shares many of the same themes regarding the repression of women, the perversion of religious government, and the difficulties of a refugee when their nation is destroyed.

This book was choppy to understand at times but well written for someone whose first language is not English. This book should be seen as a historical account of Afghanistan’s relationship with Russia (which most Americans are not aware of). It was fascinating to learn of the freedoms women had before the Taliban took control. As an ignorant, disconnected American, I thought women had always been harshly restricted in their dress, life, etc. but to learn that they knew what freedom felt like and then have to become so isolated and stripped of everyday freedoms would be maddening. I am anxious to get on the internet and try to find out how this young lady and her family are doing now.
The book climaxed and then ended rather abruptly but it’s real life and not a fictional story.
Definitely worth reading especially out of respect for what women have suffered through in Afghanistan.

Home became prison for women when the Taliban arrived. And I don't think Taliban rule was a picnic for most men either. "Latifah" did a great job of describing the deep depression of women whose lives suddenly became worth nothing with no hope and no dreams allowed.

This book was mentioned in a reader review of the book "A Thousand Splendid Suns". A reviewer implied that that the author plagiarized "Latifah's" book. I was curious so I bought "My Forbidden Face". I see no signs of any plagiarism at all. Can't imagine what the reviewer was thinking.

Another reviewer of "My Forbidden Face" wanted to know the reasoning behind the Taliban rules so that she could understand better. The Taliban wanted to demoralize and subjugate the people for complete control. That was the reason behind every crazy pronouncement.

I have to agree that the editing was poor and the timelines confusing. I had to re-read some portions of the book because I thought I missed segments. Turns out I didn't miss anything--what I was looking for wasn't there.

Definitely worth reading for the young woman's account of what life was like in Afghanistan during that time period. Scary and heartbreaking.

This book was purchased for a class assignment. Politically, it is beyond what my 14 year old has known and understood at this point. In my opinion, it may have been written from a teenager's point of view, but with adult knowledge thrown in at a later date regarding the war and who was where and at what battlefront. A teenager, the baby of the family, concerned with fingernail polish and dresses will not be concerned with the cold, hard details of war.

My daughter had to read this for her schoolwork. She then asked me to buy her a copy to keep as she really enjoyed the book.

It was alright, interesting in some areas, dragged in others. One thing that did bother me was that it was never clear when a flashback started which made it much harder to follow.

Facts that I wanted to know....and I'm sure others as well. We need to learn about the real Islam, from one who is going through it. Not the Islam that is the touted to us by the media.
I teach a class on Women of Islam. I recently taught a class to a teen group and I used Latifa's story - reading from her own words. I told the kids to put themselves in her place and think about how her life changed overnight. I asked them to think about how they would handle that change. It stirred up a very lively discussion. Everyone should read this book to understand what women in Afghanistan and other Muslim countries deal with everyday. I pray that our military will be able to free these women and empower them to change. My Forbidden Face: Growing Up Under the Taliban: A Young Woman's Story their world.
