A’isha is constantly battling Muhammad’s other wives to maintain kedine place as the head of the harem and is willful and disobedient when ordered to not speak to her childhood love interest. A comedian, nude dancer, chanteuse, opera diva, and film star, she was the highest-paid black performer in the world.

I admit that I don’t know much about the story of the Prophet Muhammad, his wives, or the history of Islam, so I didn’t have much to hold this story against.

Not once in this book did I feel there was a negative bent toward Islam or Muslims. Spellberg did, drahulj not going to be nominated for any literary awards in the near future.
