  1. Malala
    Ingrid , 3 november 2014

    En lättläst och konkret skildring av en modig flicka. Både Malala och hennes berättare Christina Lamb har gjort ett bra jobb. Man får en god inblick i Pakistans historia och kultur, vilket gör boken extra intressant. Malalas liv skildras på ett tydligt och ärligt sätt utan känslomässiga övertoner. Man kan inte annat än beröras av Malalas öde.

Malala's voice has the purity, but also the rigidity, of the principled. Whether she is being a competitive teenager and keeping track of who she beat in exams (and by how much) or writing about the blog for the BBC that catapulted her on to the international stage ... or talking about Pakistan's politicians ("useless"), Malala is passionate and intense. Her faith and her duty to the cause of girls' education is unquestionable, her adoration for her father - her role model and comrade in arms - is moving and her pain at the violence carried out in the name of Islam is palpable. -- Fatima Bhutto * Guardian * Malala's evocation of place, beautifully and lovingly described, and her paean to her father with his own passion for education, are fascinating. But so is her toughness. She describes seeing a young girl selling oranges, clearly unable to read or write: "I took a photo of her and vowed I would do everything in my power to help educate girls just like her. This was the war I was going to fight." This remarkable book is part memoir, part manifesto. I feel enriched from having read it. I also feel humbled. Our obsession with school performance is suddenly marginalised by a story in which education, quite literally, proves a matter of life and death. * TES * For sheer inspiration read I am Malala. -- Kirsty Brimelow * THE TIMES * This courageous and extraordinary young woman has become something of a world symbol. Her stand for education of women in her own native Pakistan was a courageous one, but it should not lead Western readers to think that such things only happened over there. She and her family now live abroad, but as her speeches and appearances show, she continues her campaign for the right of young people everywhere to fully realise their potential. * IRISH CATHOLIC * Malala has shown extraordinary courage in campaigning for the millions of girls who are still denied an education. Uplifting and inspirational. -- June Purvis * TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT * Honest, insightful and piercingly wise, this is the celebrity memoir to give your teenaged daughter this Christmas. -- Katy Guest * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * Did you see Malala on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart? If not, Google it, and then buy this book. It's hard to find the words to describe what this girl has done, not only for young women everywhere, but also for the world in which it feels like the bad guys always win. I'm choked up just writing this. * GLASGOW HERALD * Read the story of the remarkable young woman who refused to be silenced after she was shot in the head by the Taliban on a school bus in 2012. At 16, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. * BABY & ME * The book is equally Malala's story of love for her family and respect for her father who comes across as an inspirational figure. It is a book of courage and endurance in the face of tremendous odds. I am Malala should be read by everyone who sees education as an agency of liberation for both boys and girls and an indispensable weapon in the struggle against ignorance and oppression. -- Alan Gibbons * ARMADILLO * The inspirational story of the girl who single-handedly showed that the pen is mightier that the sword should be required reading for people of all ages. * ARMY & YOU * The Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban has astonished the world with her courage and determination to fight for education and equal rights for women. * FINANCIAL TIMES * In her inspirational and powerful autobiography, Malala tells her own extraordinary story. * GRAZIA * One finishes the book full of admiration both for Malala, and for her father, who has clearly inspired her. -- Andrew Holgate * SUNDAY TIMES * It's hard to believe that this intelligent, charismatic and very poised young women is still just 16 years old. There is so much hope and expectation resting on those inspirational small shoulders.

Övrig information

Malala Yousafzai, the educational campaigner from Swat Valley, Pakistan, came to public attention by writing for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban. Using the pen name Gul Makai, she often spoke about her family's fight for girls' education in her community. In October 2012 Malala was targeted by the Taliban and shot in the head as she was returning from school on a bus. She miraculously survived and continues her campaign for education. In recognition of her courage and advocacy, Malala was honoured with the National Peace Prize in Pakistan in 2011 and nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize in the same year. She is the youngest ever person to win the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE, taking that honour in 2014. She was shortlisted for Time Magazine Person of the Year and has received numerous other awards. Malala continues to champion universal access to education through The Malala Fund, a non-profit organization investing in community-led education programs and supporting education advocates around the world.
