One thought on “The Mother of Mohammed: An Australian Woman's Extraordinary Journey Into Jihad

  1. Laura

    Very interesting story Well written too The main character is so unlikeable, you just want to throttle her for her hypocrisy.

  2. Ann Tonks

    Completely fascinating story of Robyn Raniah Hutchinson, an anglo Australian who converted to Islam and spent periods of time in Pakistan, Egypt, Indonesia and Afghanistan during crucial periods of the last couple of decades Insightful and explanatory, it s a great book to read if you want some insight into the attraction of Islam.

  3. Felicity

    This book is diligently researched and full of interesting bits of history However, Rabiah Hutchinson s dogmatism left me cold towards the end and I had to make myself finish it.

  4. Leah

    Despite the fact that I do not sympathise with the beliefs or believe in the motivation behind the life choices of Rabiah this book made for an interesting read and is well written.
