Romance and restrictions in Riyadh

Girls of RiyadhGirls of Riyadh by Rajaa Alsanea
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It kind of reminded me of Pride and Prejudice, but set in modern-day Saudi Arabia (which made for an interesting story) and not nearly as well-written. Fun overall, but not great literature. I assigned it for my Middle Eastern history course, and it made for a good discussion with the student taking it for independent study.
