City of Veils (Nayir al-Sharqi, #2) - Zoë Ferraris Life for women in Saudi Arabia =Burqa requiredBrain optionalBYOB(Bring Your Own Brother/Bodyguard/Bedouin) any time you set foot outside your home. I thought City of Veils, although perhaps overlong, was a much better novel than Finding Nouf. It explores the varying levels of compliance with religious law in what is considered an "open" city, from both a male and female perspective. I found it especially interesting to read how modernization might pose dilemmas for devout men, as we usually tend to focus on the strictures placed on women.
