    This story is so overwhelming that reviewing it as a book is not feasible because this is not a book. It is a story told extraordinarily well and presents many lessens, one of the most interesting being the value of a religion, including those whose foundation and practices many would find strange. The author is a true hero whose life after her capture by ISIS would not be something anyone would wish on their w

    I read this thanks to the recommendation of a friend and am embarrassed I did not previously know about the Yazidi genocide in Iraq. I would highly encourage everyone to read this honest and well written account. I

    Nadia Murad is an amazing survivor. She describes in detail her life, her family, her religion and her village in great detail prior to the coming of ISIS, without being maudlin or weepy. And when ISIS comes, she details their deadly methods, their terrible interpretations of the Koran, and their beastly attitudes towards women a

    I heard about Yazidi genocide and tortures from
    News channels. But the first hand account from a survivor makes you cringe. It is not easy to talk about rape and tortures as well as the mass murder of most of the near and dear ones. Some readers pointed out, the initial portion of the book, the lives, the explainations of reli

    Nadia is smart, kind, thoughtful, beautiful, generous, funny, loving, patient, joyful, good, faithful, and pure of heart. She is proud to be Yazidi, and rightfully so. And everyone, no matter their faith, who seeks to be a person of deep character and integrity will do well to imitate Nadia. She is an amazing human being and this, her story,

    The Last Girl will stay in my memory forever. Nadia’s experience is profoundly horrific, sad and troubling.
    She is a powerful hero in the Iraqi and Yazidi war against ISIS. I couldn’t put this book down. I loved it and so admire the author.

    Another powerful memoir, another incredible woman, another indomitable spirit.

    The questions remain the same. How are humans capable to so much good and so much evil together? How is it okay to kill in the name of faith, when a

    This was a difficult read on so many levels. I think the underlying message is clear: sexual violence and genocide perpetrated in times of war, when victims are at their most vulnerable shows humanity's most despicable side. When a group of people decide they can do whatever they want with a community (in this case the Y
