Description

Are you ready to start this conversation?         

Kamran Hadid feels invincible. He attends Hampton school, an elite all-boys boarding school in London, he comes from a wealthy family and he has a place at Oxford next year. The world is at his feet. And then a night of revelry leads to a drunken encounter, and he must ask himself a horrific question.

With the help of assault counsellor Zara Kaleel, Kamran reports the incident in the hopes that will be the end of it. But it’s only the beginning....

Powerful, explosive and important, Truth Be Told is a contemporary courtroom drama that vividly captures today’s society. You will not stop thinking about it for a long time to come.

An engrossing, fast paced brilliantly written tale

I loved Ms. Abdullah's Take It Back and was delighted to find that Truth Be Told was equally captivating. An affluent Muslim family going through the motions of living a privileged life in London with two talented sons being educated in an exclusive private school. The idyll is blown wide open when the elder son has a drunken encounter with a homosexual student and seeks the support of Zara, a counselor dedicated to getting justice for the victims of sexual abuse.
The novel is so much more, however, the dynamics of the "perfect" Muslim family with the overbearing father, the compliant but frustrated mother, and the dragons that Zara as a modern Muslim woman has to slay all come into play in this tightly woven novel with a powerful twist at the end.
I highly recommend this book and the previous one by Ms. Abdullah, I think she is an exceptionally accomplished writer and I'm already looking forward to her next novel.

That was tough

The ending really was unexpected. The narrator was amazing and the writing not half bad. The characters were ok. I mostly listened to the end because of the performance but would 7.5/10 would recommend.

Lots of Misinformation and Zero Resolve

The narrator was excellent. She's the reason I was able to finish the story.
The reason I call this misinformation is because of how she portrayed Muslims and Islam. I do understand that in India, Pakistan and some countries of the Middle East, there are loads of cultural rules that's so shitty. But that's just it, it's cultural. Islam doesn't teach men to suppress emotions and the whole toxic masculinity narrative. Islam teaches men and women to both be soft and be very much in touch with our emotions. This is evident in prayers when the men bawl while praying and reciting Quran.
And towards the end of the story she said that her brother would think that making tea is feminine or something like that. Meanwhile in Islam, Prophet Mohamed PBUH used to wash his own clothes, clean his household, spend time with his children etc. I wish the author specified that all the things they were talking about is cultural and not religion. And she also implied that wearing clothes that were loose was oppressive or something. This is very close minded and rubbed me the wrong way.
Zero Resolve as in nothing was solved in this story. Nothing changed. Almost 12 hours later, the father didn't learn that he's spreading toxic masculinity. Neither did the main character. He did finally ask for help, so there's that. But other than that, absolutely nothing changed. Too many lose ends and absolutely nothing went right in the story. There were such important issues in this story that could've been presented well, but they all fell short, ironic cause the book is so long.

Another hit

This is the second book I read by this author & again I was left impressed. It took a bit for me to get into beginning of the story but soon after I was engrossed in it. This topic should be talked about more & how it affect boys and young men. The characters were sympathetic & ending shocking (just like the first one). I look forward to read more from this author
