This story was written very well and some parts are very hard to listen to, my face was cringing. On the other hand it has made me very curious about the war in Sudan, something I really hadn't known about until I read the book Slave, which led me to reading this book, I just can't believe that this is still going on today!!!

What made the experience of listening to Tears of the Desert the most enjoyable?
I truly felt as if I was Halima while reading this. I felt her emotions so much and saw the images she described. It was really amazing how real and raw it was.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Halima's dad seemed like a really great man. He was invested in his children and never looked down on Halima for being a girl, but helped her pursue her dreams. He was very loving and caring. I truly appreciated hearing her fondness in her descriptions of him.
What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?
She just did a really beautiful job and had a soothing voice.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I did a bit of both because there were a couple funny stories, but most were very sad, especially when you listen to her stories of how she was treated in school and buy those who went out to harm her in various ways. It broke my heart.
Any additional comments?
This book explains FGM and rape. It is not easy to handle, so beware that you will learn things that might really upset you and make you mad.
