    1. It's an engaging read and if I didn't have 3 monkeys to run after, I would have read the book in one shot!I even intend to pass it along to my nieces who are a bit struggling with the questions/comments they are faced with while wearing the headscarf in Montreal. The book will definitely be resourceful to equip them and myself answer those questions. The book's ideas are concise and very well formulated yet not boring to read. I feel I am reading a friend's personal journal. Sahar put on paper w [...]

    2. First of all, I'll share one of my favourite quotes from the book: “There's an overwhelming tranquility that comes from knowing you have found your centre. I felt that way when I found God and understood what he wanted me to know about the world he created and my place in it. I discovered that it made me happy to practice those values. My restlessness disappeared as I became at peace with myself and with the universe. I remember saying to a friend in a phone conversation: ‘I feel as if I had [...]

    3. I've been a follower of Sahar's Facebook page for many months, during which I enjoyed many of the debates on her wall, I've been enlightened by many posts and comments, and I've been moved to re-think and re-feel many things that I take for granted as I go by in my life, or don't get a chance to pause and reexamine them. Last night, I finally decided to read her book! I'm still less than halfway through, but I couldn't hold myself from commenting on it. I never actually sat down and wrote a comm [...]

    4. Wow this is an awesome trip in s book :)I just finished reading it now, it is almost 4 am in the morning :) I think this demonstrates how much I enjoyed the book. Soon isA will add a detailed review with quotes isAThe detailed review:The most interesting point that I found throughout reading this book is : I choose to be Muslim!I question, think, judge and decided after that to a Muslim lady.This is what was so amazing to me.I was so happy that Sahar is my friend when I found finally someone els [...]

    5. Very well written book. I loved how the author presented the basics of Islam in the form of a personal narrative. In addition to being a comprehensive guide to the basic beliefs and practices of Muslims, the book offers valuable insights into the intersection of culture and religion and the similarities and differences between Islam and other cultures. It covers a variety of topics, from marriage to business, to science and many others, all through the lens of Quranic verses and teachings of pro [...]

    6. Sandcastles & Snowmen was a wonderful read. It is a wonderful book suitable for both Muslim and non-Muslim audiences to learn and explore the Islamic faith through the author's eyes and spiritual journey.I enjoyed reading Sahar El-Nadi's personal, work and travel experiences as a modern day Muslim woman in her field, the road to her rediscovering Islam, and her personal desire to become a practicing Muslim. She covers a diverse range of topics including, religion, science, arts, culture, pol [...]

    7. It's beyond a book; it's a long journey of rediscovering Islam's principals and values from an exceptional perspective. The book is concerned to present these values three-dimensionally rather than just using the typical speech to convey the message of Islam. You can compare evidently the perception of western and eastern mindset for the core rituals and values that we take for granted. I'd recommend "sandcastles and snowmen" for those are eager to enrich their impoverished soul and mind in para [...]
