      Rewritten after some advice suggesting I make this review more PC and re-rewritten after deciding I don't care about PC anyway 16 May 2013, see the second spoiler.The story is of a young woman who falls for a man and gets pregnant and then he leaves her. Her child is adopted and forever leaves a hole in her heart and despite all attempts to make a new life for herself abroad she is always drawn back to the nasty, backward, prejudiced, wicked family and country of her past. The country isn't name [...]

      If you read fiction to escape, then you read literature to fall in love, and with this love collect for your heart the fallible gestures of human judgment that mark a life as you would know it. The Cry of the Dove creates a woman easy to fall in love with because her life encompasses the most human effort: to stake and bound an identity amid conditions that are powerfully imbalanced, but quietly, lovingly, individual.The novel is constructed with evocative language and a speech broken only out t [...]

      I found this book while browsing at the library. I took it home because I enjoyed A Thousand Splendid Suns, which ended similarly, but in a majestic, satisfying way.Also, enough with the flowery descriptions already. This book would have been a short story without all the "turquoise encased in silver" blah blah blah.

    15. Kat on said:

      Jarring, disjointed, fractured, and out of place, the shattered, sharply jagged edges of Salma's narrative cut into one another, mirroring her inner turmoil as she tries to navigate, to make sense of, the pieces of her life and the shards of her heart. Torn violently away from her native land and forced into a culture, a language, a climate, and a country for which she was given no points of reference to foster a transition between the two, she cannot reconcile her personal identity with her new [...]

    16. Kate on said:

      I had a hard time rating this book. I couldn't put it down, reading well into the night which is unusual for me. But it also makes me suspicious of a book when I can't put it down. Am I being sucked into some emotional manipulation? I'm only rarely a reader for the story, the narration, but this one pulled me in. I would like to read some serious criticism, not just opinions here, probably because I'm too lazy to think it through. Actually, if I were reading it with others, I might be able to te [...]

    17. booklady on said:

      Disappointing. I wanted to like it. I tried to like it. I certainly felt empathy and sympathy for the female protagonist; she was poorly treated both by her own family and by others. However, she also brought a great deal of her own misery on herself and she encountered the kindness of angels in disguise. The book jumps around a lot (from various places in the past to various places in the recent present) the language is unnecessarily crude and the plot is predictable. I only finished it in hope [...]

    18. Safa Jarrar on said:

      So, usually I don't like this style of writing, jumping from one place to another, making me feel lost and requiring me to read the sentence more than once to understand what she is talking about, despite of that, I was attracted to the writer's style, she managed to keep me on toes, wondering what's the end will be.The storywhat to say, we hear it all the time, a lady makes a mistake by giving herself to a man thinking he loves her and he will stand by her, a man who wants nothing but fulfillin [...]

      I desperately wanted to like this book. There were parts of it that were beautifully written. My heart wrenched for Salma -- the main character of this piece. Still, it took me a good two or three reads of the first few chapters to even determine what was going on and in what time period -- which was aggravating. The story also had a tendency to move at an extraordinarily slow pace leading to an outcome which was plainly obvious from the very beginning. I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts [...]

    21. Amy on said:

      Honestly, it was an alright book. Salma, the main character, goes through many hardships with being foreign. One problem that I found was the time jumping. There is never a cue to inform the reader of the jump. It suddenly happens and every paragraph is from a different period. It's ridiculous and impossible to get into a scene completely when it changes within a couple words.Another thing, while Salma gathered a lot of sympathy from me, I found that her character changed too suddenly. It appear [...]

    23. Leanne on said:

      Interesting book that puts the spotlight on the dangers faced by women in some cultures as well as the treatment and experiences of immigrants by some and in my view the dangerous effect of organised religion. I read it in one sitting, although I didn't find doing so particularly enjoyable - I was afraid if I put it down for a break I would give up. Although I felt for Salma and was interested in the plot, I found the jumping from one time period to another in each paragraph (or it felt like tha [...]

    24. Teba Tayooba on said:

      I didn't like the book. The writing style was trying as it alternated between past and present. Also, it portrays Islam negatively, therefore it is misleading for readers without much knowledge about Islam. I feel like the writer purposely wants to show Islam as a violent religion that oppresses women. Sadly there are some many fiction novels out there with the same intention. It was a very disappointing read. Maybe the only interesting part was how the main character adjusts to her new life in [...]

    25. Rachel on said:

      This book is a mixed bag. I felt a lot of empathy for Salma, and thought the language of the book in general was beautiful. However, it took me a couple of chapters to figure out what the heck was going on, and even once I got a grip on the rhythm of the book, I still sometimes got confused. I would probably need to read it again in order to catch all the nuances and intricacies of the text. Ultimately, I felt a bit let down by the inevitability of the plot, especially because I wanted it to wor [...]

    27. Pamela Pickering on said:

      As much as I would like to know Salma's story I just couldn't abide by the way it was being told--so much jumping around! I don't mind stories that jump from time frame to time frame but this one did it every two to three paragraphs. After thirty or so pages of this technique I did not think I would be able to tolerate it for 300+ pages, so alas, I'll never know Salma's fate. (Loved the cover though, it was absolutely beautiful!)

      Salma a woman from a Bedouin tribe in the Middle East gains the knowledge she is about to have a baby out of wedlock and is rushed away from the village she would die under (for breaking the wedlock) and is separated from her daughter after many safe, but grief stricken years returns to find her daughter and the rest will not be reviled.
