    While it needs to be acknowledged that atrocities have been committed against women overseas in the name of Islam it also needs to be acknowledged that such practices have no basis in the religion itself More than 1400 years ago Islam afforded women rights comparable to those in our contemporary international human rights documents It is not Islam but other factors notably cultural practices alien to the religion itself which are the cause of the mistreatment of women Sydney Morning Herald Grim picture of sharia hides its useful aspects Ghena Krayem and Haisam Farache February 18 2008Statements such as these are now common in our media They assure us that the harsh treatment of women in Islamic countries is the result of the culture and not of the religion of Islam

    Reading Nora Roberts is sort of like hanging out with a high school friend or a first love Nora Roberts Danielle Steele Sidney Sheldon they all were my first loves and the ones that got me reading Before I knew what love was I traveled the world with these authors watching the dashing hero and heroine find chemistry from the ashes of a difficult childhood to the sweet taste of thrilling romance The details of this one don't matter they are ultimately all the same But I will share an outline anyway Abused and Neglected Princess turned International Thief in Robin Hood Style seeks to punish her father by stealing her mother's necklace the Famed Sun and Moon Handsome Dashing Ex Thief who works for Interpol falls instantly in love and thieving escapades lead to true love and redemption Fun and familiar Reading Nora transports you straight back to 1988Speaking of 1988 I was 20 that's why I picked up this book For a challenge I needed to find a 1988 book to enjoy and this one was one of five I got out from the library The others included Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game Alice Hoffman's At Risk Barbara Kingsolver's the Bean Trees and Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth Remember these titles? I do I think I made the right choice But I like knowing that a lot of old friends are in the huge pile to be returned to the library when someday it re opens When this nightmare is over we will be having new adventures once again

    Nope I can't with this one The islamophobia inherent in the main character's back story is horrific and I'm at the point now 70 pages of back story behind me where even if the jewel heist part is amazing and no islamophobic bullshit happens unlikely I'll still have to one star I don't need this in my brain

    A solid 35 stars rounded up to 4My first Nora Roberts book and I have to say I enjoyed it Wasn't really sure what to expect as she seems to be a very prolific writer in several different genres but it was an emotional and interesting read even if I got pretty angry on behalf of the heroine and her mother at times Inter cultural marriages are always difficult but the description here of this one was uite black and white and I was a bit surprised at view spoiler how the h's father was portrayed as an unmitigated Baddie with no redeeming features and an apparent incapacity to feel love or compassion hide spoiler

    Style and LanguageThere are only a few books by Nora Roberts that deserve to be called “excellent novel” Sweet Revenge is one of them The plot is haunting the figures are exiting and the authors writing style simply said brilliant Over two lines of action shows Nora Roberts how Adrianne´s life at the palace was and how her mother’s decision changed it and in the other the life of Philip He is a thief and specialized when it comes to jewels and diamonds Both of them have one thing in common their devoted mothers Mothers who would do everything to keep their child from being harmed How they do it and what they have to do to achieve their goal shows Nora Roberts in a wonderful sensitive way Even the cruelest scenes are written in that tone and it is up to the reader to see and make up hisher mind for themselves Alone the scene where Adrianne talks to her father in her US apartment and is well blunt and without the behavior that she has to show when she´s in the palace with him alone that one is worth an Oscar Or the scene where Philip talks to the king – WOW Ok I´m not that much into religion but the one Nora Roberts used in this novel is on one hand a good choice to bring some Opposites not only to the figures but also the plot On the other hand that religion brings some spice into the story Although Adrianne lives her western heritage from her mother she is embossed by the religion that is lived in Jauir The combination of both western lifestyle and the lifestyle of the Orient handles the author in a very entertaining and sensitive way CharactersStrong very uniue some of them are weak others nothing but superficial but every single character is convincing and seems very real Although I have to admit that there was at some point during reading where I could have smashed the King with pleasure against a wall and where I could have called him a lot of names That character is uite something and I don´t mean in a good way He is evil cruel and does things that are against the law and if the public would know about them he would be no longer king of the country Adrianne´s feelings for him are not less intense But she has a heart and her way of seeing things and how she cares about others is something that makes the big difference Her struggle to get revenge and hate in balance without losing herself completely is uite something to read I was very impressed when I read why she does what she does and why she can´t let go of that last piece in her plan before she kind of retires ResultWhat a brilliant and great novel The story was fantastic many years back when I´ve read it the first time and it was now – if not even greater What a thrilling and fantastic read Highly recommended

    I wasn't sure how I was going to like this story since it started with a mother who has gave up everything to be with a man she thought love her but when your a woman in an Arabic country things aren't as what you may think When Phibbe decided to take her eight year old daughter Adrianne away from the same life that she did and went back home to the States things went downhill After her mother's death Princess Adrianne only thought about the revenge she wanted for her mother Adrianne made something of herself over the years but what she was actually up to would surprise you and was very dangerous The only person who can ruin her plans is Phillip So much happens in this book It keeps your interest throughout the story You see the differences between the two countries but also the sameness too but no matter what love is always the key to our heart but also the key to vengeance Another well written book by Nora Roberts  Re Read for a challenge 12318 Still an enjoyable book

    The essence of this book summarized in one sentence Adrienne was angry that her father abused her mother then she went and fell in love with a man who thought he's better than her and wanted to control everything about her life So many pet peeves so little time to list them allI hate Philip I absolutely hate him If it's in the author's intention to make me hate him then good job I read the second half of the book grinding my teeth every time Philip showed up on screen which unfortunately was too many times IMO Snooping around stalking manipulating forcing opinions on someone else's holding someone against their will sugarcoating the need to control with love etcI'd ask for restraining order if I were Adrienne He's an infuriating self serving egotistical forceful no good maleman that I hope would never meet in real lifeWhat I learned from this book view spoiler a man's penis is the cure to traumatic past about rape because upon realizing that Adrienne was afraid of rape Philip proceeded to cure her by manipulating her into having sex with him And voilaAnd by the way? A man should never take any woman's no as a no Of course she's going to love it she needs it she just doesn't know it yetview spoiler hide spoiler
