Reader's Diary #2182 - Huda Fahmy: That Can Be Arranged

Not being Muslim, and not having had an arranged marriage, it feels like Huda Fahmy's That Can Be Arranged: A Muslim Love Story was aimed at readers like me. 

There's a glossary of terms throughout, explanations about wearing an hijab and so on. This is not a criticism of any shape or form, and in fact, probably helped me. I got what I wanted from the book in that regard. The fact that Fahmy shares her positivity and sense of humor just made it all the more enjoyable and I was especially intrigued by the parallels to Pride and Prejudice

I wouldn't say the art is great, but it's simple and has the look of a pamphlet which sort of fits its educational goal.
