Hello American Lady Creature Book Review

If one was to believe the picture that the media was painting about what it is like to be a female living in the Middle East, one might believe that these women are forced to live as if it was still the 12th century instead of the 21st century.

In the early 2000’s, Lisa Kirchner took a job in Qatar. Her job was to help establish the overseas wing of a prominent university. She details her life there in her new memoir, Hello American Lady Creature.  Lisa was then in her late 30’s and married only a few years.  Trying to balance her work life, her home life and adjusting to her new surroundings, Lisa’s emotional journey is a very interesting one.

Did I like this book? I don’t know. There was just something about the book that didn’t click with me. Do I recommend it? Not particularly.
