If you don't have tough skin, if the truth hurts you, don't pick up this book or you'll feel the same way that "a reader from UK" felt. I personally enjoyed her poems and am glad that a Bangladeshi woman finally came out with something like this because it is long overdue. People who expect the timid, self-sacrificial, submissive attitude from women will not be happy with these poems. Nasrin spoke about many issues that Bangladeshi women face but are afraid to or have been prohibited to talk about. Some people don't like reading things that don't conform with the backwards traditions that they grew up with, and if you are one of them, this book isn't for you.
