shaw posts on 1/23/2010 6:25:31 PM I just read the book, 'Sold' I am shocked. I sat on the couch today and read it from start to finish without stopping. I can't believe it. I felt so sorry for Zana and poor Nadia. The father should be put in jail for what he did.
Michaela posts on 1/23/2010 8:45:25 AM I would like to reply to the post that mentions how we have only heard one side of the story. I ask you to ask yourself why only one side of the story has been told? Try to think back to when you were just a teenager, how as teenagers we think we know all there is to know about life. This young girl was robbed of her life and her god given right to make choices for her self. The fact that she chose to stay with her children only shows to me that she was scared as to what would happen to them if she left without them. She has chosen to sacrifice her life for the love of her children. I am a great believer in the saying what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger. However, I also know that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and to allow us the freedom of choice. Nadia's choices were taken away from her the day she was sold to a man she had never met before, a young boy who due to his sickliness was unable to secure a wife for himself in the Yemen. Allah, God whomever you perceive Spirit to be most certainly did not exist within the soul of Nadia's father the day he chose to sell the 3rd of his daughters, nor anyone else who feels that she is still there out of her own choice.
Menekse posts on 1/22/2010 8:57:24 AM I have finished the 2nd book yesterday and I'm REALLYY SHOCKEDD..I really thought that at last Nadia would get back to England.I want to shoot Zana's fatherr and all the other sick people that keep Nadia in Yemen. I need to NAdia still in Yemen??? I really hope she isn't! I also can't believe how low English authorities are. I wish I could do something to help. But RESPECT to you and your mother Zana!! My prayers are with you!!

Helen posts on 1/14/2010 2:40:32 AM PLEASE can anyone tell me what happened to Nadia? has she had any contact with Zana? I'd really like to know!!
carmen serrano posts on 1/6/2010 2:10:22 PM Leí el libro de Zana "Vendidas", hay otro libro de ella? cuál es el título? Quiera saber si Nadia y sus hijos están en Inglaterra? Admiro mucho a Zana ya su mamá por lo valientes que son, en especial Zana que no se dejó amedrantar por la legislación de Yemen. Dios quiera que Nadia y sus hijos ya estén en Inglaterra. Reciban bendiciones. Espero sus comentarios, gracias.
Romp posts on 1/3/2010 3:01:47 PM Mariam can you please not post a message ever again? If you people like your lives as they are, pretending to follow your religion, then keep it for yourselves. Leave us, the civilised ones to go one with our lives. I doubt if any God of human beings would allow such systems and attitudes to exist in any country. Any God is a God of love and equality of everyone before him!!!!!
hayley posts on 12/28/2009 7:24:12 AM I have recently read both books and i am sick to the stomach that a "father" can go through life knowing the pain hes still causing. Fair enough if the girls had never lived a westernised life but ones still living the nightmare and i just want to say zana pray to your angels for nadia and NEVER give up the fight youll get there in the end.xxxxx
Bob Smith posts on 11/3/2009 1:16:28 AM I could not put a promise to Nadia down once I started to read, as a Christian I can only pray to God that one day Nadia will return to freedom, something we in the west enjoy everyday.........
Rosa Hassibi posts on 10/27/2009 12:29:41 AM Zana,you are such a strong girl/woman. I myself lived in an Arab country for 20 years, my ex-husband and children are Arabs. I suffered what I call a metamorphoses, I will never be the same again. Although my husband is from a rich family and I lived in a neighborhood like that of Abdul Walli, him and his family behaved almost as wild as your in-laws. I hope one day you will see Marcus again and that Nadia will survive and return to England; I am worried about her. My heart goes out to you and your mother.
Mariam posts on 10/18/2009 5:26:11 PM I have read both books and i must say that i quite agree with the woman who posted a message call Khadija. I am Yemeni and i am a muslim wife and mother of 7 children. And if my husband chose to live in Yemen then i would live there too! so what is all the fuss about? Do you people all know her side of the story? have you met her? just because she doenst lead a modern life does that mean she is not happy? you people only like stories with a sad ending, its always the same with you. Allah does not bear us with anything we cannot handle, Allah does not let people suffer in this way, if this is true then in her next life she will be in eternal paradise i am sure, but i am more sure that there is more than 1 side to a story, and we have all only heard one side havent we????
