Looking forward to the discussion; particularly the meaning of the book’s last chapter/ending.
Elaine same her, I wonder what happen after the train ride in the last chapter.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Woman Is No Man, and am recommending it to others. Much of it speaks to the tensions in Muslim American communities in which I have been very close to, and walking that fine line between newly arrived women/brides to the USA, and being there for them if they chose to speak out, and finding ways to let them know that it is okay to speak out, and that we will help and support them.
Looking forward to a lively group discussion.
The intense pressure for Isra to bear a child to the point she is not ‘permitted’ to breast feed, is harsh for both mother and child. Living life walking ion eggshells.
I am listening to the audiobook, which is as if the character via the narrator is telling me the story directly.
I listened to the audiobook too. I think it made the story more authentic hearing the accents of the readers rather than reading it myself. I loved the narrator’s voice! I very much enjoyed the book and can’t wait to discuss with everyone on Thursday.
where do I borrow the book.
Hi Brunella, great question. I would check with your local library first. Many libraries also use apps such as Hoopla or Libby to rent E-Books. If not the book is available on Amazon and Bookshop online. Hope this helps!
Excellent book–every women and man should read this book. I have recommended the book to the librarians where I attend. Wow what a journey.
So happy to hear this, Saundra! Looking forward to seeing you on the 10th :)
I just finished the book, having read it based on a friend’s reco. hoping to join the discussion 11/10!
Hi K, hope to see you there!
I am enjoying Part 2 Of the novel. I thought I would have a chance to discuss Part 1 via Zoom. Is this an entire book club discussion via comments? Where can I find the comments on Part 1?
Hi Thea, so happy to hear you are enjoying. If you scroll down the page you can see the comments from the first part of the book. The discussion will take place at 4:30PM Eastern on November 10th (the link at the bottom of the article has info on the event.)
By the way, Rebecca, the November 7 Senior Planet newsletter lists the discussion date as Thursday, November 11. Might confuse some people – is it Thursday Nov 10, or Friday Nov 11?
Just letting you know.
Great catch, Bernadette! It’s Thursday November 10th :)
The online book club is my first activity with Senior Planet. I am looking forward to being a part of the discussion “A Woman is No Man.” Will I receive a Zoom link for October 25th and November 6th?
Hi Carol, welcome! We are meeting on Zoom November 10th. I am about to update the article with this change. In the interim, I will be using the article here to prompt you on what to read each week.
Hi! I am new to senior planet and plan to join the book discussion if my local library can provide me a copy. I think it’s a great pic! Love reading with others and can’t wait to join the discussion. Jeanette
We would love to have you Jeanette. Welcome!
