In the Land of Invisible Women: A Female Doctor's Journey in the Saudi Kingdom by Qanta Ahmed

adventurous informative reflective medium-paced


I enjoyed this book and the peek into the author's life in Saudi Arabia as a physician and the dynamic of being a female in a male dominated society yet still in a leadership position at the hospital.

However, I found some of the details about name brands of clothes and other items to be shallow and didn't really add to the story except during the first mention when she noted that she found it fascinating that these women appreciated luxury items even thought they can not be seen to the outside world. Continually harping on the designer labels felt unnecessary.
