I moved East, back towards my roots, only to discover how much of the West I brought with me. From Dunes to Dior is the story of my life as an expat South Asian woman in the heart of the Middle East.
I found this book so interesting that it was hard to put down. To read about differences between how we perceive the Middle East and what its really like was fascinating. Plus, in trying to dislodge an American stereotype, Mohana also allows those of us from outside the US to compare and contrast our own views of Qatar.
I also loved the little touches of humourous situations which crept into the otherwise serious account. Sometimes it was amazing to read about how everyday occurances could turn out so differently because of the context in which they happened.
The only downside is that the chapters sometimes jump about timewise, which can be slightly confusing.
A book for all those who want to discover another cullture, or just challenge their own perceptions of the Middle East.
Action Readers Action: Challenge your own views of a stereotype. Find out more about a culture or disability that you don't know much about.
