    One thought on “The Zanzibar Wife

    1. Toast on said:

      I found this a really enlightening tale about two main places Oman and Zanzibar, peoples, cultures and religions I know nothing about all wrapped around a story so female led it was refreshing There was a lightness to the writing, a go to approach to the story, a directness to the characters that didn t hinder the tale or drag it down with baggage that could so easily have done Don t get me wrong there is a strong difficult story to tale here but it is not weighted down with all the usual stuff [...]

      Rachel takes a job travelling to see the crafts made in Oman She comes across several problems, not just with her fixer who is supposed to make things run smoothly.There are three main female characters Rachel, Ariana the fixer and Miza who is a Zanzibar wife Their lives become entwined when they all find themselves in Oman at the same time There are issues they are all trying to resolve in their personal and working lives.Rachel s photographic assignments keep being foiled and she is very frust [...]

      I felt this book was slow to start I am not a huge fan of this genre and if I m totally honest it was the pretty cover that had me pick it up The blurb did it no justice once a quarter of the way through I could not put it down.The characters were real , relatable and you were buckled in for their journey.I won t give any thing awaybut as a Muslim it was fascinating to read from a non Muslim writer about jinn Very well written.Pick it up and give it a go I want to know what other people think ab [...]

      I was a bit worried going in to this There seem to be a lot of reviews saying that it is not as good as Coffee Shop I was pleasantly surprised I like this book and enjoyed reading it I was hooked at the beginning maybe not so much the end I wish it was a bit longer.

    5. The Barefoot Crafter on said:

      An enchanting story that feels like being swirled into a sandstorm and then dumped in the heat of Oman, The Zanzibar Wife was a delightful look at how our spirituality affects our relationships, experience and self perception We see three very different women form unlikely bonds of friendship through shared experience, and get to dip our toes into the mysticism of the Jinn, and the inexplicable I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it for a nice easy holiday read A few darker, meatier [...]

    6. Sasha on said:

      So I have never read any others by Rodriguez but I am aware that particularly her Little Coffee Shop of Kabul is fairly well regarded So while I wasn t expecting anything earth shattering I was expecting at least a decent story I was disappointed Rachel is a photojournalist who suddenly finds herself burnt out after one too many warzones Offered a short stint with a travel magazine she heads to Oman in search of artisans and craftspeople Ariana is a British national living in Dubai Recently let [...]

    7. Joanne on said:

      This is a story of 3 women from 3 different background, Rachel, an American photographer that want a change, Ariana, a pakistani British that got employ as Rachel s fixer, and Miza, the Zanzibar woman who married to a Omani Man as second wife Their life Criss cross in Oman while Rachel looking for something interesting to photograph, for her spanking new employment as a travel photographer for a glossy magazine In this book, Rodriguez brings her reader to Oman, a beautiful country with beautiful [...]

    8. Birgit on said:

      Well thank goodness that is over I really enjoyed The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul but I m beginning to think it s a one hit wonder as I didn t like the sequel.Oman, the ancient land of frankincense, windswept deserts, craggy mountaintops and turquoise seas Into this magical nation come three remarkable women, each facing a crossroad in her life this came from the back of the book It s true all three women were at a crossroad in their life, but they were anything but remarkable, I won t go into d [...]

    9. Nicola McGunnigle on said:

      Weaving three women s stories as their lives intersect in Oman, this story has great potential but didn t quite meet my expectations of a cultural immersion Rachel, a burnt out American war photographer just seems too impatient, Ariana, a little too lucky, and Miza, the Zanzibar wife not quite the protagonist that the title suggests The ladies lives do intertwine, but it all seems a bit rushed and unreal, and I am sure Rachel would not have stuck with the plot so long in real life before going o [...]

    10. Leslea on said:

      I was seduced by the cover and the fact that I have loved all of Deborah Rodriguez s other books when I bought this Alas, it doesn t quite live up to her previous works and our Book Club gave it 5 out of 10 Such a shame as it was a really great story line It was about 3 women drawn together in Oman, but too much attention was given to Rachel and Ariana when it was Miza we wanted to know about after all she is The Zanzibar Wife

    11. Sarah on said:

      I really wanted this book to be gripping but it didnt at all The characters are nice and tolerable and the writing is good and descriptive but it took a while to get in to a storyline And when it did it wasnt enough It was short and easy and not a page turner I judged this book by its lovely cover and was disappointed Wouldnt read again and wouldnt suggest to someone to read.

    12. Corey on said:

      I have always enjoyed her previous works, however I found this one hard to start and to maintain interest in the three main characters.

    13. Namrata Saigal on said:

      I like the kind of freshness this book lends to fiction and how it brings alive the geographies of Oman and Zanzibar The QnA at the end is very informative and engaging.

    14. Helen Marquis on said:

      Having thoroughly enjoyed both the Little Coffee Shop of Kabul stories, I was intrigued in seeing what Deborah Rodriguez would serve up in a different country This time around she set her story mostly in Oman, with a few trips to Zanzibar thrown in.The story revolves around three women Rachel, an American photojournalist desensitised and jaded by the horrors that she s seen Ariana, a Brit living in Dubai who recently lost her job in finance and who is desperate to find work to avoid going back h [...]
