I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the TalibanI come from a country that was created at midnight When I almost died it was just after middayWhen the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan one girl spoke out Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an educationOn Tuesday October 9 2012 when she was fifteen she almost paid the ultimate price She was sh. Reading this book reminded me of how much I take for granted every day Freedom of speech Freedom of religion The freedom to go to the store without needing a male escort And the ability to get an education regardless of genderI was a girl in a land where rifles are fired in celebration of a son while daughters are hidden away behind a curtain their role in life simply to prepare food and give birth to childrenMalala who is now 16 is an outspoken advocate for girls to have the same right to go to school as boys In her native Pakistan she lost that ability when the Taliban took over I was 10 when the Taliban came to our valley It seemed to us that the Taliban arrived in the night just like vampires They appeared in groups armed with knives and Kalashnikovs They looked so dark and dirty and that my father's friend described them as 'people deprived of baths and barbers'The Taliban started bombing schools and decreed that girls couldn't get an education Malala's father was a school principal and encouraged her to speak out She was only 15 at the time but threats were made against her and her family And in October 2012 when she was riding the school bus with her friends a man with a gun climbed aboard the vehicle and shot Malala in the headAmazingly Malala survived the bullet and was able to recover She and her family currently live in England but Malala writes about how much she misses her home country and wishes she could return to be with her friends Her graciousness was such that she did not wish revenge on her attacker and instead prays for peaceI thank Allah for the hardworking doctors for my recovery and for sending us to this world where we may struggle for our survival Some people choose good ways and some choose bad ways One person's bullet hit me It swelled my brain stole my hearing and cut the nerve of my left face in the space of a second And after that one second there were millions of people praying for my life and talented doctors who gave me my body back I was a good girl In my heart I had only the desire to help peopleMalala's story is both heartbreaking and inspiring I admire her courage and her tenacity and also hope that her country will one day find peace Why are we Muslims fighting with each other We should focus on practical issues We have so many people in our country who are illiterate and many women have no education at all We live in a place where schools are blown up We have no reliable electricity supply Not a single day passes without the killing of at least one PakistaniThe book is lovingly written and I also appreciated her stories about the history of Pakistan and her people the Pashtuns While reading the book I realized that I knew about the history of other countries in the region such as Afghanistan Iran and India than I did about Pakistan and it was very informative I would highly recommend the book to anyone interested in women's rights current events history or inspirational memoirsToday we all know education is our basic right Not just in the West; Islam too has given us this right Islam says every girl and every boy should go to school In the uran it is written God wants us to have knowledge He wants us to know why the sky is blue and about oceans and stars The Taliban could take our pens and books but they couldn't stop our minds from thinkingUpdate October 2014I was thrilled to hear that Malala had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work I have recommended this book to numerous people in the past year and am still amazed by her courage Three cheers for Malala

characters I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF è I come from a country that was created at midnight When I almost died it was just after middayWhen the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in PakisOt in the head at point blank range while riding the bus home from school and few expected her to survive Instead Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York At sixteen she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the yo. These days it seems like our world is a giant game of telephone Any news story or online gossip you hear is hard to believe because it has been skewed so much since it left the source It is refreshing and enlightening to hear a story straight from the source especially on the topic of life in the Middle East which is always uickly demonized in America By experiencing Malala's story it gives a true face to the people of Pakistan who are mostly wanting peace and prosperity not oppression and terrorI highly recommend this book to anyone who only has views of the world from the news and social media Seeing how the war on terror in the Middle East was experienced by a child on the front lines is pretty amazing I thought my teenage drama was hard here in the United States but what Malala and her countrymen and women went through is humbling In fact I think the story of this book can be of value to anyone living today who feels like they are far away from the terror or that they are better than people from other countries For every terrorist there are hundreds of people just like us5 stars all the way let's just hope other books like this stop having to be written because people are being terrorized and having their rights threatened The people that read this and don't take it with a grain of salt the closer we will all be to a better world

I could not be bothered with negative comments So get on with your life Just ignore the review if you think I write negativelyI don't want to raise some sentiments here so if your comments got deleted like I wrote earlier get on with your life Edited to include what I have wrote earlier in my comments on 4 December '13I do feel that this autobiography should have waited for a few years for Malala to have a much distinctive voiceUnfortunately this was muted by the co author25 starsOK shoot meI actually hated this book because the co author named Christina Lamb actually used 34 of the book and sensationalise everything EVERYTHING That is why I am giving 2 stars for the 34 of the first part of the book And this co author put on dates and tragedies and events and it was like I am in war all overI actually enjoyed Malala Yousafzai retelling on her father's dream on her school on her daily life But when the other author start saying Pakistan is bad all over oh hey I got uite a few friends who are studying for their ualifications in the UK and they turned out uite well And they are men and not TalibansI know Talibans are wrong because they stop the girls for going to school and be educated But there are some people who are not bad The way Christina Lamb painted that all Pakistanis are violent that's the vibes here makes me want to smack her I am a Muslim BTW and this co author who is living in London is trying to say Muslims are bad oh heckBut for the second part 14 of the book it will be 3 stars This is because Malala's voice has become prominent later in the book And I do love and enjoy her stories after she survived that Taliban shooting in her school busOK if I can survive this auto biography maybe I will survive other horrid books
