Miss Farah is reading “Girls of Riyadh”

Posted on: June 8, 2010


 

When I read the title of the book, it got to my attention because I don’t know much about the Saudi society especially that it’s about the Girls of Riyadh. I only hear about them but I don’t know much in depth. This novel says it all…

Gamrah’s faith in her new husband is not exactly returned… Sadeem is a little too willing to please her fiance’..Michelle is half American and the wrong class for her boyfriend’s family…Lamees works hard with little time for love.

” The girls of Riyadh are young,  attractive and living by Saudi Arabia’s strict cultural traditions. Well, not quite. In between sneaking out behind their parents’ backs, dating shopping, watching American TV and having fun, they’re still trying to be good little Muslim girls. That is, pleasing their families and their men.

But can you be twenty first century girl AND a Saudi girl?

This is a novel that captures it all…a revealing study of one of the world’s most secretive socieities.

You can find this novel at Virgin Megastore.
