Well, this months book was certainly a mixed bag - It was a very easy read, with the exception of there being so many foreign names to keep track of.
The group was more in favour of the book than against it, but those who didn't like it felt the characters were weak, boring and only interested in men. The author came across to them as arrogant and very confident in her writing, although that may have been more to do with the translation, or even the idea that the author of the emails was an entirely different person to the real author.
Most of the group found the book an eye opener into the reality and culture of Saudi "upper class" relationships. The male characters in the book were weak, usually giving in to the demands of their families, but also showing an insight into how family life and traditions play a part in choosing a suitable wife.
