    1. 3.5 stars is my rating for this novel.It was a lot of fun, the process of reading this book, it evokes a really important taboo that is really underestimated in our societies but that exists very widely : RAPE! It's not rape in itself that's discussed in this novel, but rather the state of the victim afterwards, especially in an Arabic environment that considers the victim as a teaser who brought that to herself, which is really unfair. Here the protagonist, Farida, faces her fears, and struggle [...]

    2. A story told in very simple terms and use of English. It looks at how rape victims are perceived in society in Egypt. How the females automatically assume that is the victim's fault and that Farida brought her troubles on herself. It is the men in the neighbourhood who feel sorry for her and reach out to treat her in a neighbourly fashion. After a year and a half of piecing herself back together Farida feels able to venture back to work and the majority of her employees are very pleased and welc [...]

    3. The subject of rape is always a difficult topic to speak out upon. It's something people prefer to shove into the back of a drawer, intent on forgetting that such a thing ever happened. This mentality extends to every reach of the world, not just in Egypt and the outlying reaches of the Middle-East. While this subject is often-times taboo, it's imperative that those who've gone through such an ordeal to take the time to address it. To tackle the issue head-on in hopes of being able to put it beh [...]

    4. I've read a lot of books over the years, but this is one book that has impacted my life. I was hesitant to read Ruptured at first and here is why. The book is about a rape victim named Farida, who faces a society that looks down on her. I normally read books about how blue the sky is, lol. After reading this book I was tosed back into reality and how evil the world can be. The author did a tasteful job of writing this heartfelt book. I wasn't aware of how different cultures treat victims of rape [...]

    5. Ruptured tells the challenging story of a woman coming to terms with her life after being raped. While Egyptian author Refaat talks of the differences in that society in his forward, the novel truly shows how universal such a story can be. The stages (I can only imagine) a woman must go through defies languages barriers or country borders. This male author has captured real emotion in the pages of his debut novel and one that should be read by men and women in cultures across the world. Stories [...]

    6. I came across the book when its author Tarek sent it to me to read. I finished it in a day but decided to write the review the next day I started reading the book and was immediately sucked into it and couldn't leave except when it is done and read. I started it with tears in my eyes but it didn't slip yet and ended it with a smile. I identified with the heroine and I understand very well her struggle but lucky her she got her happy ending which never happens in real life except rarely However I [...]

    7. 'Ruptured,' a novel by Egyptian author Tarek Hassan Refaat, isn't always an easy one to read. It tells about the emotional aftermath of a sexual assault. Its main character, Farida, is a strong-willed survivor, so she is able to triumph even in the face of a society that looks down on her for something that wasn't her fault.Refaat writes in his introduction, "In a Middle Eastern society, a woman who has suffered such a horrible experience as rape is condemned in the eyes and words of the communi [...]

    8. Farida's life is turned upside down when she got raped by a psychopathic predator. After a year and a half the justice is done, the perpetrator was put behind bars. That should be enough, but now she must face the harassment and discrimination of the community she's living in.Rape is a violent crime. Even if there's no scratch left on the body, rape cause a very serious trauma that no one should go through it alone. Farida was alone and needed support and friends for back up. But instead all she [...]

    9. The first thing i loved about this story is its simplicity. The author, Tarek, didn't use any kind of complicated expressions or metaphors with his characters instead he used simple expression which makes it easy to the eye and close to the heart and that was quite clever regarding the issue he had discussed The subject of rape is very difficult to discuss in any place around the world. It is very difficult to move on with your life after this horrible incidence. It ruptures the soul and deforms [...]

    10. I really liked this book. Farida is a girl who struggles with the sequelas of her rape. I like how she fight against herself, just to have her life again. We can see how, sometimes, when we have the most painful moments on our lives, wee refugee on solitude. And that's not right. We need our friends, our family, we need God to move on. Sara, her friend and boss, she help her and understand her a lot. I liked her so much. I think this book is beautiful. I just didn't like the last thing Karam did [...]

    12. Very touching and poignantThis story follows a bit of life of Farida who writes for Charisma which is a magazine in Egypt. As we enter the story she's been taking a bit of time off because of having gone through a rape and now she has written an article about the rape. I really felt for her as she sat down to write the article and she had to relive the entire rape that she had went through in her mind. It's very interesting to see neighbors and coworkers reactions to her and knowing a few Muslim [...]

    13. As I promised, even though it took longer than I thought, I have just finished reading your gem "Ruptured". I really enjoyed it a lot. Its language is simple and clear. I enjoyed the state you put your readers in with every reveal of incidents you smartly and wisely added. Yet, the end was quite abrupt to me, or maybe I just didn't want the story to end :) It seems like a fairy tale at some parts, and also touches the ground again in between. I guess this made it, generally, plausible to me. I a [...]

    14. I was extremely disappointed when reading this book. From the description, I was expecting and hoping to read a fictional story which formed a social commentary about the pain women have to deal with after being raped, particularly women in the Middle East, where rape is seen as being the woman's fault. The whispers and comments I expected to be the focus of the book were found on a grand total of four pages. The rest of the book was an odd mix of a rushed romance story and a drama about a woman [...]

    15. This book is a realistic look at the journey of a rape victim as she struggles to come to terms with the horror of what has happened to her. Farida lives in a society where a woman who has been raped is not seen as a victim, but instead becomes the scorned one; a defiled person who loses her status in the community.I was so impressed with this book. Tarek Refaat has so accurately portrayed this Egyptian woman's point of view that you feel her frustration, her shame, her pain, her helplessness an [...]

    16. This is one of those odd books where not a single star rating actually fits. The premise is about a woman whom is made out not as the victim of rape but the person organizing it. I loved the universal truth of this. However the ever changing shifts in the book, looking to step up in the world, dating once again etc. all of this confused the plot line and diminished the main plot line. Yes life goes on and it is fairly safe to say it is a chaotic process but this was simply confusing. Do not get [...]

    17. I am biased to Tarek as a friend I can't deny this fact , but in this book , he has tackled a critical issue , stepping on a field of bombs for a tale of a young woman in the middle east , in Egypt who was raped psychologically and physically . His neatness and simplicity has covered up a lot of how he handles a painful thorn It was an enjoyable read for me !

    18. Rape is an emotive issue and the effects devastating. It is known that the despicable act is about having power over another and regardless of opinion, it is never the fault of the victimeven if they think it is.However, what happens when society puts the blame on the victim?This book explores that question and challenges cultural thinking.An interesting read.
