There is a lot to admire about Waris Dirie and her story Raised in a nomadic Somali family apparently raped at age four and then mutilated in a female circumcision ritual at age five Dirie bravely ran away from home at thirteen to avoid being married off to an old man Dirie endured a great many trials and tribulations finding her way to Mogadishu and to her long lost relatives a string of unsuccessful living arrangements working as a maid in London and then as kitchen help in McDonalds with minimal English language or literacy Eventually in an amazing rags to riches trajectory Dirie embarks on a successful modeling career and then uses her success to speak out against female genital mutilation FGM It s a shocking story and it reads uickly despite the mediocre writing which detracted some Unfortunately I just couldn t warm up to Dirie as a narrator Some goodreaders perceived her as disingenuous which is something that occurred to me as well although that may just be general memoir skepticism thank you James Frey for stealing my innocence I think the real problem was that I just didn t like Dirie She s not someone I would ever want to meet or hang out with although I do respect what she s been through and genuinely admire her triumph over adversity and her activism Maybe it s cultural or part of growing up in a tough world and having tough experiences but Dirie seemed superficial self involved and Machiavellian to me using people when it suited her and discarding them when it didn t falling out with family members without taking much responsibility for her own behavior failing to respect people s wishes at times etc Plus I felt that some of her musings sadly lived up to negative stereotypes of models and modeling as superficial and vain Dirie redeemed herself somewhat in my eyes with her commitment to activism but I still felt I couldn t really connect with herI thought Infidel a memoir which covered similar ground was a far superior book with a much relatable and admirable narrator
