Why do all of you say such negative thing about the book and things like "It's written this way to make readers sympathize Betty"? Why is it so ubelievable for you that it really is a real story. Everybody knows that women in Islamic world is treated way differently than other religions.

I get that she had the in-laws from hell, but her book goes out of its way not only to slam them for every little fault like spilling sugar when getting some in their tea , but also describes them in pretty derogatory terms, saying they were dirty, that they left unhygenic messes all over the place, etc.
If this is how they really are, maybe they have different standards in their family than she did. She sounded a bit anal-retentive in describing her efforts to maintain immaculate homes in the US at all times. She writes off teachers as brainwashed drones. They probably saw a mom who was fighting to keep her kid uneducated and tied to another country's culture to her detriment. Think about it like this: if your friend was married to a woman from Iran who refused to send her child to elementary school and fought letting her child learn English or start to integrate into the US, you would probably think that woman had a screw loose or two.
Also, when she extrapolates her in-laws behavior to everyone in the country, she treats people who helped her as simpletons and exceptions to the rule. Are there limitations there for women that restrict freedoms I and other women enjoy? Yes, but America also restricts behaviors or freedoms they would find just as barbaric. Her husband was an abusive jerk, but so are a lot of white American husbands, unfortunately.
The focus of the book should have been on "I married an abusive man whose family supported his behavior, but thankfully escaped to make a better life for myself and my daughter. When I read the book, I was reading an individual experience, not a comment on Islam or the women of Islam; or even Iran. It's Betty's experience, and the hatred she describes towards her in-laws is stemming from her plight.
I totally get it. It's a story, not a revolution. Good Read, and a great movie. See all 8 questions about Not Without My Daughter…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews.

This story completely took my breath away. There aren't enough words to describe the suffering and heartache of the human condition in Not Without My Daughter.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the story, I'll provide a very brief overview. Betty Mahmoody agrees to visit Iran with her husband, Moody, and daughter, Mahtob, despite niggling thoughts to the contrary. Once there, Betty finds herself suffocated among a repressive environment that devalues women.
Looking forward to their return home, Betty and Mahtob are shocked and dismayed when Moody reveals they will not be boarding the plane as planned. In fact, their new home, will be in Iran. I will never forget this autobiography. Betty Mahmoody showed an astounding level of courage in the face of adversity.
I can't imagine being in her shoes. She was truly an example of a "Mama bear. She endured violent abuse from her husband, isolation, and horrible culture shock; all the while, she never stopped planning and plotting. I'm simply amazed of what one can accomplish when truly forced up against a wall. I think.. As Betty's father said.. There's a way". View all comments. May 11, Beaman rated it did not like it.
The untruths begin with the cover of the book, which features the image of a woman who is dressed in a manner which is decidedly not Iranian. So, even before you have read a single word, you have been given an image that is not authentic. The book is carefully packaged to cater to the American people's fears and prejudices. Also, the book isn't an isolated phenomenon. It's a product of a veritable cottage industry of horror stories and black-and-white portrayals of Muslim societies Persepolis, R The untruths begin with the cover of the book, which features the image of a woman who is dressed in a manner which is decidedly not Iranian.
It's a product of a veritable cottage industry of horror stories and black-and-white portrayals of Muslim societies Persepolis, Reading Lolita in Tehran, etc. Turns out the author wasn't even in Jordan; it's a complete fabrication. Google Norma Khoury. Why would anybody fabricate or, in the case of Not Without My Daughter, embellish such horror stories? Because there's a market for it.
These books wouldn't sell as well otherwise. If one of countless Muslim women who live fulfilling lives of achievement wrote a story in which religious Muslims didn't come across as demons, it would be simply discounted as propaganda; there would be no market for it.
Only that which is considered true that conforms to the prejudices and stereotypes. View all 42 comments. Apr 05, Denise rated it it was amazing. I have read this book twice and it is my all-time favorite book. I first watched the movie - one of those you catch by chance on a rainy day. I thought it was good. Then one day I saw the book and could not put it down! I could not believe some of the things I was reading.
I was in shock! I still loved the book and this time I knew a whole lot more about the cu I have read this book twice and it is my all-time favorite book. I still loved the book and this time I knew a whole lot more about the culture. There are many things the author wrote about that are very typical of Iranian behavior, things that I have grown to love about the culture the best food, the love of tea, the strong family unit, the way they seem like they're arguing when they're talking.
Not Without My Daughter
In August , Michigan housewife Betty Mahmoody accompanied her husband to his native Iran for a two-week vacation that turned into a permanent stay. To her horror, she found herself and her four-year-old daughter, Mahtob, virtual prisoners of a man rededicated to his Shiite Moslem faith, in a land where women are near-slaves and Americans despised. Their only hope for escape lay in a dangerous underground that would not take her child. Betty Mahmoody born June 9, is an American author and public speaker best known for her book, Not Without My Daughter, which was subsequently made into a film of the same name. She is the President and co-founder of One World: For Children, an organization that promotes understanding between cultures and strives to offer security and protection to children of bi-cultural marriages. Her book, Not Without My Daughter, is an account of her experiences in —86, when she left Alpena, Michigan to go to Iran with her husband and daughter for what she was promised would be a short visit.
My daughter dozed in her seat next to the window of a British Airways jetliner, her red-brown curls encircling her face, tumbling haphazardly below her shoulders. They had never been cut. My darling child was exhausted from our extended journey. We had left Detroit on Wednesday morning, and as we neared the end of this final leg of the trip, the sun was already rising on Friday. My husband, Moody, glanced up from the pages of the book that rested upon his paunch. He pushed his glasses up to his balding forehead.

В XVI11 веке некий английский купец приобрел у севильской церкви три десятка бушелей апельсинов и, привезя их в Лондон, обнаружил, что фрукты горькие и несъедобные. Он попытался сделать из апельсиновой кожуры джем, но чтобы можно было взять его в рот, в него пришлось добавить огромное количество сахара. Так появился апельсиновый мармелад. Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке. Деревья были очень старыми, с высокими голыми стволами.
- Я… я не понимаю. - Я не могу, - повторила. - Я не могу выйти за тебя замуж. - Она отвернулась.
Потому что Стратмор обошел систему Сквозь строй? - Фонтейн опустил глаза на компьютерную распечатку. - Да, - сказала. - Кроме того, ТРАНСТЕКСТ уже больше двадцати часов не может справиться с каким-то файлом. Фонтейн наморщил лоб. - Это по вашим данным.
Она не могла припомнить, чтобы когда-то отменялось дежурство, но Стратмор, очевидно, не хотел присутствия непосвященных. Он и мысли не допускал о том, что кто-то из сотрудников лаборатории узнает о Цифровой крепости. - Наверное, стоит выключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ, - предложила Сьюзан.
