Revue de presse

"Compelling drama... fascinating, if disturbing... a moving story of one person's fortitude, courage and faith" (The New York Times Book Review)

"The horrific situation in which Betty Mahmoody found herself would give any loving mother nightmares. Here is an amazing story of a woman's courage and total devotion to her child that will have you rooting for them along every inch of their treacherous journey" (Susan Oudot Woman's Own) --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

'You are here for the rest of your life. Do you understand? You are not leaving Iran. You are here until you die.'

Betty Mahmoody and her husband, Dr Sayyed Bozorg Mahmoody ('Moody'), came to Iran from the USA to meet Moody's family. With them was their four-year-old daughter, Mahtob. Appalled by the squalor of their living conditions, horrified by what she saw of a country where women are merely chattels and Westerners are despised, Betty soon became desperate to return to the States. But Moody, and his often vicious family, had other plans. Mother and daughter became prisoners of an alien culture, hostages of an increasingly tyrannical and violent man.

Betty began to try to arrange an escape. Evading Moody's sinister spy network, she secretly met sympathisers opposed to Khomeini's savage regime. But every scheme that was suggested to her meant leaving Mahtob behind for ever...

I would advise you all to read her follow-up book to "Not WIthout My Daughter" called "For the Love of a Child". Betty WAS NOT LYING in any part of her book. She has proof of all her experiences and the way she escaped, namely, her stamped passport in Ankara, Turkey. Her ex-husband Moody, recently published his own side of the story is his book "Lost WIthout My Daughter" where he says Betty lied about everything, but he offers no concrete proof of this. Betty has her bus tickets, passport stamps and valid witnesses to the proof of her escape from Moody's wicked claws. More proof? Mahtob, her daughter, who is now an adult has repeatedly refused to acknowledge her father because her trust was betrayed as a child. Surely, as a grown woman, Mahtob is able to make her own decisions and her decisions stand as proof of what both she and her mother went through to get away from this madman (who has lied repeatedly). Also, this book (and the movie) was not meant as an affront to the Iranian culture. Quite the contrary, Betty goes out of her way in the book to relate the fact that it was the kind and compassionate Iranians who helped her escape from Moody's clutches. She received NO HELP from the U.S. state departments. People should remember that this is an honest depiction from HER standpoint and what SHE WENT through. She is only speaking for herself and no one else. As for Moody, well, he is obviously a bitter old man now. Perhaps he does feel loss and anguish for Mahtob, but he did bring the situation upon himself. If Mahtob refuses to have anything to do with him, it is her decision and who can blame her? It is time for people to realize that Betty's book was factual and not exaggerated in any way.

**AN EXCELLENT BOOK** 9 juillet 2000
Par JGC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
NOT WITHOUT MY DAUGHTER is one of the very best books that I have ever read. My only regret is that I can't give this book more than 5 stars. Betty Mahmoody is very courageous for telling her story.

This is a story about an American housewife who goes to Iran with her husband and daughter. Her husband decides to keep her in his homeland against her will. She is a virtual prisoner at the mercy of her corrupt husband. Her basic human rights were violated, rights that any ordinary person takes for granted. She finally finds help to get back home but the journey isn't easy.

This book gives a really positive message which is that there is good in people all around the world. There were many Iranians who were willing to help her no matter what the consequences were.

I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in equality and human rights. Also, on the same topic I recommend any books by Jean Sasson.

it boils down to one thing 12 mars 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I loved this book. I have read through it a bunch of times and I always find it just as compelling. In a later review, I will get into that one more. In the meantime, I want to comment on the criticisms I see over and over. You accuse her of being biased. Let's consider some facts. Betty Mahmoody went to Iran with her daughter. That is a fact. Her husband would not let her leave. That is a fact. She was held against her will. Yes, I know she could have theoretically forced a divorce which would have gotten her deported but her daughter would have been stuck there. She was not allowed to leave freely and on her own terms simply because she was a woman. That is a fact that is written into the country's law. Criticize her if you feel you must. But just remember that she was held against her will just beacause of her gender. There is no justification for that. Please, tell me. What defense could her husband possibly have?

Gripping tale of a real life experience 17 septembre 2010
Par Andrea K. Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I'm sure this book is biased, since Betty Mahmoody is writing about her own experiences as an American woman in an unfamiliar culture with a husband who by her account changed drastically in personality while they were there and became abusive and refused to allow her to leave with her child. Even if it is biased or sensational, it should be read as a tale of a culture clash and what can happen when a marriage goes bad between a western woman and an Islamic man.

Most Islamic countries will automatically give custody of a child to the father. If the mother is allowed to keep custody of a preteen girl, it will probably be only within the Islamic country, only if she doesn't remarry a non-Muslim, and only if her behavior fits with a strict Islamic code. Boys are taken away from their mothers even younger than girls. Even in the past five years there have been several stories about women whose husbands or boyfriends have taken their children to Saudi Arabia or Bahrain or Jordan or various other Islamic countries and the women couldn't get them back or mothers who have visited those countries with their children and been refused permission to leave because the father or father's family won't allow it. Women don't have the same rights to their children in Islamic countries as they do in the United States or other western countries. These kids will usually have passports from the father's country so he can travel with the kids using those passports even if an American judge has ordered that the child stay in the United States. This is the type of situation that Mahmoody ran into 25 years ago when she wanted to leave with Mahtob and it hasn't changed much. Any woman marrying a man from one of these countries should be aware of the differences in child custody laws and go into the marriage clear-eyed. If the marriage stays good, she won't have to worry, but if it goes bad there is some risk. Likewise, a man marrying a western woman should be aware of American custody laws that usually will require him to share custody of a child with a woman and will give her equal say regarding religion, schooling, and every other aspect of the child's life until the age of 18.

Not Without My Daughter 30 novembre 2005
Par nelly - Publié sur Amazon.com

First of all, let me just say to ANYONE who thinks Betty Mahmoody is a racist, you can't play the "race" card here my friends, she married the guy, so if she was racist then explain them being married in the first place, not to mention the fact she named her very own daughter "Mahtob". I also have read numerous reviews thinking she had in some way fabricated her story and it could be "onesided". Here again you may have to display just an ounce of common sense; that whether or not her treatment was as bad as she says , she was being held AGAINST HER WILL. Even if he had not abused her physically, keeping her HELD HOSTAGE is exactly what he and his family had done to her. Dr. Mahmoody knew what he was doing when they left the states and knew the laws there as well, once she is in Iran she has NO RIGHTS.Whoever thinks she is scamming the situation with lies needs to think straight. Noone would up and leave their entire home, family and friends and decide to stay where women are treated like animals and not forgetting the fact her daughter was enduring the same thing. Yes, she has made alot of money from this and the movie and I say good for her. She "earned" it. Anyone envious of her financial situation, maybe you will get lucky and be trapped in a third world country somewhere against your will for 2 yrs., have to ESCAPE 500 miles on foot in some of the most dangerous lands known and with the all mighty dollar in mind, slip back into the US and make tons of money from your horrible experience. After doing so, some of your own Amercian people calling you a liar when you get back.

Bottomline, this is a great book and a great movie and I have become even more proud to be an american since reading it.
