  • When Souad was seventeen she fell in love In her village, as in so many others, sex before marriage was considered a grave dishonour to one s family and was punishable by death This was her crime Her brother in law was given the task of arranging her punishment One morning while Souad was washing the family s clothes, he crept up on her, poured petrol over her and setWhen Souad was seventeen she fell in love In her village, as in so many others, sex before marriage was considered a grave dishonour to one s family and was punishable by death This was her crime Her brother in law was given the task of arranging her punishment One morning while Souad was washing the family s clothes, he crept up on her, poured petrol over her and set her alight.In the eyes of their community he was a hero An execution for a crime of honour was a respectable duty unlikely to bring about condemnation from others It certainly would not have provoked calls for his prosecution More than five thousand cases of such honour killings are reported around the world each year and many take place that we hear nothing about.Miraculously, Souad survived rescued by the women of her village, who put out the flames and took her to a local hospital Horrifically burned, and abandoned by her family and community, it was only the intervention of a European aid worker that enabled Souad to receive the care and sanctuary she so desperately needed and to start her life again She has now decided to tell her story and uncover the barbarity of honour killings, a practice which continues to this day.Burned Alive is a shocking testimony, a true story of almost unbelievable cruelty It speaks of amazing courage and fortitude and of one woman s determination to survive It is also a call to break the taboo of silence that surrounds this most brutal of practices and which ignores the plight of so many other women who are also victims of traditional violence.

    1. با اینکه دقیقا معلوم نیست که داستان واقعیه یا نه، اما از دینداران سراسر جهان چنین حرکتی بعید نیست.داستان واقعا تلخیه درباره زنی باردار که در حالی که هنوز زنده بود، به آتش کشیده شد و بعد موقع سوختن نجات داده شد. داستان کتاب دو بخش از زندگی این زن رو توضیح میده، قبل و بعد از این دا [...]


    2. Attention everyone: THIS IS NOT A REAL MEMOIR. This is a fictional story which was dressed up as a memoir, and the alleged author may not even exist. I was suspicious of it when I read it because the book described things which were, quite frankly, impossible. NO ONE could survive burns over 90% of their body without immediate and good medical treatment. For that matter, I doubt anyone could survive being burned that badly even if they got the best medical attention right away. I looked the book [...]


    3. I honestly don't know how to rate this book. I don't know if it's a true story, nothing can prove it. If it wasn't I would give it a star and less if I could for using a situation like this to make money.Souad is a girl born in a traditional small village in Palestine. Girls were worth less than a cow in the eyes of society. Women have no rights, they are only slaves of men. They can beat you, hurt you, kill you and no one will say a word. It is okay because they are men and the women must have [...]


    4. I am so glad I have read this book. I also do not believe it has anything to do with religion as much as cultures. What so many of us in the modern world seem to forget is that the rest of the world does not "progress" at the same rate. Women have had to fight to get our rights everywhere, it is much slower in isolated places like this. The women do not know better so they just accept it. Also, as another journaller mentioned, women are beaten and murdered here in the states. There are still men [...]


    5. When I first read this book years ago, I was drawn totally into the story. I feel differently after reading a lot of other reviews and sadly came to the conclusion that perhaps this is not true. IF Souad exists, I wish she could come out and hold a press conference. Sometimes that is not possible, but I wish that she could do this. However, I remind myself that whether Souad does or does not exist, such things do happen frequently to women in the world, and we can't let any disappointment in a b [...]


    6. What a book full of crap!!! I can't believe that people bought it under the impression that it was a real story based on real facts! It's obviously fiction, and not pretty good!It was a major punishment for me to read the whole book, and was just hoping that it will finish as soon as possible. I would have thrown out the book way before half way through the book, but wanted to see what's the end with our Souad and her dreadful way of being as pessimistic as she possibly can.Being from the Middle [...]


    7. Since I am a reader with Arabic background, i see this book representing our Past precisely, where women used to be treated as slaves. I can not say that all Aravic countries had treated women the same way it was described in this book. But, i can say that most of it was true. What I did not like is that Souad did not mention the good things about being raised in Arabic County. Overall, it is a short story that will bring hate, anger & happiness to your heart at the same time.


    8. Does this ever happen to you?You're in a lull in time, bored, just thinking. And then your brain for no other reason than to be weird shoots a random memory or thought in your head. These little snippets are usually things like book or movie synopses. It always happens to me. As an afterthought I was thinking about a book I read a few years ago about a young girl in the Middle East who was doused in kerosene and set on fire to protect her family's "honor". So the day I am writing this, I was loo [...]


    9. This was a harrowing book to read! To think that in this day and age people can act so barbaric and commit unspeakable crimes against loved ones is truly horrendous. I am so stunned at Souad’s story that I don’t feel I could do her justice by writing my own review. What this woman has been through is atrocious, frightful, appalling and extremely sad. I wouldn’t want in any way to shame Souad or make her feel that I said something in my review to hurt her feelings so I will leave you with t [...]


    10. eu até que tinha gostado mais ou menos do livro até descobrir que são memórias falsas. Sou mesmo burrinha, tendo queimado 70% ou 90% do corpo é óbvio que ela não sobreviveria (dahhh :x).Acho desprezível escreverem uma história bem pesada, cheia de acontecimentos horríveis como se fosse uma história verídica.


    11. Ok I am a little confused and gave this book a 5 star rating thinking it was true but have come to find out that most likly this is not a true account so I am giving it one star. If it is true then its a five star.


    12. This is either a hoax or a badly written memoir, incompletely recalled by the subject of this story, or purposefully altered to protect her identity. Some details just don't add up. Although the dynamics of the rural patriarchal family are spot on and the cruelty of the honor code is indisputable, there is something 'false' here that refuses to be dispelled. My reactions are mixed. On the one hand I fully understand Souad's fate and the horrors of her experience. On the other hand, I feel that t [...]


    13. Even knowing there is a lot of controversy over whether this is a true story or not, due to this author bringing the "all too true" plight of oppressed Muslim women to our attention I give it 5 stars. That being said,I find it highly unlikely that anyone being burned over 90% of the body and receiving inadequate medical attention would of survived. maybe that part was exaggerated somewhat for the book (and could I blame her for thatwhat a horrible outrage) the rest of her story I do find believa [...]


    14. Superba carte. Nu ma asteptam sa fie atat de buna si sa transmita atat de bine emotiile, durerea, disperarea, toate sentimentele si incercarile la care a fost supusa aceasta femeie.


    15. Mi-a plăcut foarte mult această carte, mai ales felul în care a fost scrisă, sunt unele persoane care consideră că nu este o memorie adevărat și chiar dacă este fictivă sau nu ea este scrisă așa fel încât să te întrebi dacă este adevărată. Ce s-a întâmplat în viața lui Souad te poate întrista însă te și învață unele lucruri. Felul ei de-a lupta m-a fascinat. Dacă este fictivă sau nu această poveste este una foarte frumoasă ce merită citită, povestită și ară [...]



    16. Souad hears of a possible arranged marriage to a neighbour and after spying on him, finds him attractive enough to start contact with. As she falls in love with him she reluctantly agrees to have sex with him and falls pregnant, to the disgust and shame of her family. They arrange to have her killed by covering her in petrol and setting her on fire and only the intervention of other women saves her life. But a future of agony and fear await her as her family still want her to die, and her only h [...]


    17. Aku baru tahu dari novel ini bahwa ada budaya di timur tengah sana yang membakar anak perempuannya sendiri. benarkah nyata? masih tanda tanya bagiku. Membaca novel ini memang bikin miris. Kok bisa ada budaya yang sekeji itu. Namun menjelang akhir buku ini aku sedikit kecewa.Novel ini kurang mengupas di wilayah konflik batin souad untuk hidup. Perjuangannya dalam mengadaptasi budaya yang sangat berbeda. Perjuangannya menjadi mampu baca dan tulis serta berbahasa perancis, dan.terutama kisah perjal [...]


    18. Not sute if it is a true memoir of the said author or a fiction work based on some culture and tradition.Honour killing is nothing new though, and there are cases happening in some cultures and belief. But for this book itself, till what extent it is true or a real memoir is unsure.


    19. Be thankful if you do not live in the country where Souad grew up!! It's shameful how women are still treated in some parts of the world.


    20. Stunning;Powerful! How the human spirit can overcome. A wonderfully upsetting book that everyone should read.


    21. Baisu, bet perskaičius man peršasi mintis:"štai kaip atsiranda fanatikai, teroristai ir visi kiti, kurie dabar šiurpina pasaulį išpuoliais". Ir tikėjimas čia niekuo dėtas, jei žmogus nuo pat mažų dienų auga žinodamas , kad nužudyt seserį visiškai normalus darbas, kaip kad suvalgyt sriubos šaukštą, tai kas yra jam žudyt kitų tautybių žmones dėlto , kad ne alachą garbiną, ar odos spalva kitokia. Trūkumas išsilavinimo, netikę, iškraipyti papročiai, besitesiantis amž [...]


    22. A staggering number of women and girls are killed each year, by members of their own families, in a practice collectively referred to as honor killing. Common characteristics are the wide range of 'rules' by which females must abide (to avoid being killed), family agreement to commit the act, and attempts to make the killing look accidental. Souad (at 17) was condemned by her family when she became pregnant by the 'boy next door,' which occurred because she fervently hoped and believed that he w [...]


    23. I stumbled across an article by Thérèse Taylor, an Australian historian, who debated the authenticity of Souad’s memoir by pointing out numerous medical, historical and cultural inconsistencies in the book.She writes, “An important point to note is that Burned Alive is a work of “recovered memory.” None of the reviewers who praised this book found it worthwhile to mention, but it is a very pertinent detail. Souad did not always know of the events she recounts.” The more you read Tayl [...]


    24. I was very interested in this book, until I read the reviews and realized it is fake! Why would I waste my time reading a fake memoir? Ugh. I also found this: "According to the book, Souad forgot about the incident for two decades until it was recovered through repressed memory therapy. Thérèse Taylor, an Australian historian, has pointed out numerous medical, historical and cultural inconsistencies in the book that put its authenticity in doubt.Souad claims to have survived the attempt withou [...]


    25. This book was so horrible to the soul! So heart-wrenching, so tear-worthy, with a realistic view on a the life of dear Souad, who only wanted to be loved more than anything in the world.I finished this book with tears sprawling, adoring the way SOUAD wrote so cleverly, so deeply, retelling the life which no one could have ever known without this book.I am relieved to say that, as a twelve year old, I took so much away from this book; politics, the corruption of some families, and the lives that [...]


    26. Okay, I don't want to seem rude, but I don't like these kind of books very much: it's always about a woman who falls in love with some guy, they have sex/run away together, she dishonor's her family acording to the laws of her country, he doesn't really care and disappears, the parents get nuts and try to kill her. All these kind of books seem to say the same thing over and over again. And don't get me wrong: these women really suffer and I actually think this is barbarian and something should b [...]


    27. It amazed me how Souad, the Palestinian victim of the so-called 'honor' crime, proudly disseminated her story, wanting it to pass from one country to another. The story of a girl who was punished by her own family for simply seeking 'Love'. Luckily, she received the aid needed from a Swiss organization to survive. Even though I found the book interesting to read, some details were unnecessary. The writer was a bit discursive in some parts. Yet, it did not really affect my curiosity throughout my [...]


    28. Finished this book yesterday.I liked it but mostly the beginning.I had a lot of questions and was interested in how she would cope in Europe, but suddenly she was married and such. It felt like big parts were skipped.This book also made me angry cause right now we have problems with people from Arabic countries who immigrated to our countries but despise us.


    29. "The shocking, true story of one woman's escape from an 'honor ' killing"A truly heart breaking, heroic story of a Palestinian women who suffered a lot by her family due to customs. She now lives somewhere in Europe with Antonio, her Italian husband, her son and her two beautiful daughters.I strongly recommend it
