  1. I loved this book. I find it disgusting that people want more from this girl. I’m sorry but did you miss the people being raped and killed? Have people become so selfish that they can only see but their own suffering. Anyone that says this book is a bore is a pathetic excuse for a human being. Latifa didn’t write this book for you to come on here and say it’s boring or it needs something more. She wrote what she wanted people to hear about her life. She wasn’t thinking to herself,” How many book

  2. چهره ممنوعه من» را چندین سال پیش خواندم. حالا بعد از دیدن فیلم مزارشریف و آن صحنههای دلخراش، یاد این کتاب افتادم. کتابی به غایت سنگین برای خواندن. سنگین به معنای وزنی که بر روح و روان آدمی وارد می
    .این کتاب، روایت زندگی در دوره طالبان را از زبان دختری افغان -گویا خبرنگار- بیان میکند.

  5. This is not a good example of the whole women/fundamentalist Islam genre which had its heyday in the early years of the new millennium. There are far more stirring tales of such woes on the market. While the plight of Latifa is not to be sneered at, the book is not one of the best mediums to convey the real difficulties of women under the Taliban. Readers should try other books for a deeper understanding and to gain more empathy.
