    My Accidental Jihad MOBI Ó My AccidentalKindle - accidental free, jihad mobile, My Accidental epub, My Accidental Jihad KindleLovely prose but not a likeable book The story of their relationship doesn't build or develop and the author is so consumingly self absorbed that we never really understand the love between her and her husband we never see or feel anything in the book outside HER HER HER She is admirably frank about her own selfishness but never engages with it or exhibits any sort of growth process which is off putting in a memoir that spans 15 years or so The beauty of her language would mean if it were matched to substance

    My Accidental Jihad MOBI Ó My AccidentalKindle - accidental free, jihad mobile, My Accidental epub, My Accidental Jihad KindleIt's challenging to write a memoir of your marriage while still married to your husband ostensibly happily and wanting to keep it that wayIn this memoir Krista describes her transition from all American young woman to wife and mother married to a Muslim man and even visiting his relatives in Libya at one point for the culture shock of her life Krista is a decent writer who is thoughtful and introspective in my view though others called her whiny and self centered My issue with this book wasn't so much the alleged narcissism memoirs are

    My Accidental Jihad MOBI Ó My AccidentalKindle - accidental free, jihad mobile, My Accidental epub, My Accidental Jihad KindleThis book really resonated with me and I believe this is a book that needed to be written As a self proclaimed feminist woman who is partnered with an Arab Muslim man it is good to see a story that is about two everyday people living their lives who just happen to be of different cultures There have been some commentary in previous reviews who uestion the book's authenticity of an Muslim man who is truly this good and because of that there need to be stories of people in relationships with Arab andor Muslim men that highlight the good Stories of woe and strife while real and relevant overshadow the lives of those who do not fit the stereotypical overbearing Muslim man who is set out to control the females in his life Even if Ismail is not perfect as highlighted in the book the fact remains that his imperfections

    My Accidental Jihad MOBI Ó My AccidentalKindle - accidental free, jihad mobile, My Accidental epub, My Accidental Jihad KindleIt is difficult to assess a book of this nature as it involves various issues like culture and belief with which one may not be familiar with But this book is honest and Krista Bremer has with all sincerity chosen to discuss her life and relationship as she embarked on a journey of unexpected struggle to open her heart and grow beyond herself and explore a world which lies beyond her comfort zoneKrista Bremer is an American author and the associate publisher of The Sun magazine She is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writer’s Award and a North Carolina Arts Council fellowship In short Bremer is no ordinary American My Accidental Jihad by Krista Bremer is her love story of being married to Ismail a Muslim who was

    My Accidental Jihad MOBI Ó My AccidentalKindle - accidental free, jihad mobile, My Accidental epub, My Accidental Jihad KindleThis is not a typical memoir of a young American woman and her Jihad person struggles She was not born into poverty she did not have to contend with and overcome physical or emotional infirmities Rather this is the straight forward telling of a young woman's journey from a typical young woman doing the things she loves as she grows into a beautifully mindful loving and open human being Much of her growth seems to have been triggered by her love for her Muslim husband from Libya but the actual transformations which she recognizes as on going is only facilitated by his gentle living of his own values as he allows her to live and share her own values It is easy to see how the relationship could at times be discordant but the love they share and their open mindedness and open heartedness which seem to have always been a part of each of them stimulate personal and spiritual growth in each of themThis is a very well written memoir a very interesting and eye opening peek into a cu

    My Accidental Jihad MOBI Ó My AccidentalKindle - accidental free, jihad mobile, My Accidental epub, My Accidental Jihad KindleI didn't expect to be so entranced by this book Her prose is romantic touching and soulful but brutally honest I loved that about this book Her frustrations at falling in love and marrying an older man from Libya was not what she had planned for herself Dealing with the realities of two vastly different cultures and trying to understand the Muslim faith from an arms length takes up most of this book She is unapologetic about her American egoism and grandiosity compared to her husbands humbler beginnings but over time with the help of their two children she comes to understand herself and her husband in a whole new lightHer first trip to her husbands homeland three months pregnant with a five year old in tow during Muammar Gaddafi's reign of terror is beyond brave or wise but agonizing I felt like I was in her skin Her struggle to overlook the degradation and despair of a country held hostage by Gaddafi while at the same time honoring her husbands family among the

    My Accidental Jihad MOBI Ó My AccidentalKindle - accidental free, jihad mobile, My Accidental epub, My Accidental Jihad KindleIt must be difficult to write about sharing a life with a person from another faith without seeming insensitive Bremer an American is married to Ismail a Muslim who was born in Libya She writes movingly about her difficulties understanding some of their cultural and religious differences I teared up unexpectedly as she wrestled with Libyan expectations for pregnant and nursing mothers uoting Gaddafi of all people versus American expectations which frankly can wear a woman out The end which shows how her daughter is getting older and coming into her own identity will stay with me for a while My two complaints about the book are
