Picked up a copy of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s new book “Nomad” today

Haven’t gotten very far into it yet. So far, pretty good. It seems in some ways to be a bit of a rehash of Infidel,, a retelling of the story but with more of an emphasis on the mental part of the journey. So far, I feel like, if you’ve read Infidel, maybe you’ve heard the best bits already, but, if you haven’t read Infidel, maybe you ought to read that before reading this book. So, kind of a “damned by faint praise situration,” in which the take away is, “read Infidel instead or at least first.”

But I haven’t read the whole thing yet, so this may be a bit premature to say. And, if this kind of thing is up your alley, then you don’t need me to tell you to get the book and read it.

The book does dwell on the thinking going on within the heads of Muslims much moreso than Infidel did, I think, so for that alone, it may be worth the price of admission.

Don’t buy or not buy the book on my recommendation though.
