Reviews

'Explosive ... We look forward to the second and third volumes of the trilogy.' TLS 'Adama is not only a warm, funny and fascinating book, it is also a very brave one. It deserves to be read.' The Times 'Al-Hamad has written a charming and involving coming-of-age tale. Always humane and often humourous, Adama has much to say about the foibles of the adolescent mind.' Boyd Tonkin, The Independent 'This sweet almost whimsical novel was banned for its political curiosity.' Mariella Frostrup, Open Book 'I loved this book, which exposes the secrets of the inner and the outer life of the people of Saudi Arabia and made them vividly real to me; writing this book was a great act of courage.' Maggie Gee
