Intrigerend "document - verhaal" over Ayan en Leila. Knap jouranlistenwerk van Asne Seierstad. Het laatste deel van het boek vond ik iets te lang, het is alsof de spanning uit het "verhaal, reportage" verdwijnt.
Had het boek op het einde een beetje ingekort geweest ik had het 4 of 4.5 sterren geven.
Maar het blijft voor mij een eye opener. Een aanrader ..... ( )

Bra skildring av hur två välartade norsksomaliska flickor radikaliseras i sin närmiljö att lämna Norge för att kämpa för Islamiska Staten. Boken bygger på vittnesmål från föräldrar, vänner, lärare, mail m.m. men helt utan flickornas medverkan. Föräldrarna anar inte vad som pågår men modern också ansvarig, som mot bättre vetande, anlitar en radikal koranlärare för undervisning i hemmet. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The riveting story of two sisters' journey to the Islamic State and the father who tries to bring them home. ?Asne Seierstad puts the problem of radicalization into painfully human terms, using instant messages and other primary sources to reconstruct a family's crisis from the inside. Eventually, she takes us into the hellscape of the Syrian civil war, as Sadiq risks his life in pursuit of his daughters, refusing to let them disappear into the maelstrom. This is a relentless thriller and a feat of reporting with profound lessons about belief, extremism, and the meaning of devotion.… (more)
