I really loved Reading Lolita in Tehran and after a few chapters of this book I'm totally hooked. Wonderful writer, fascinating life. Can't wait to read more!

I absolutely loved. loved this book. It is true that truth is stranger than fiction and this book is really fascinating. Hard to imagine in a real fictive book a character like Azif's mother, she was just way too over the top but somehow you just had to sympathise with her. And Nafisi can write and bring alive all the clours, flavours and feelings of her childhood, the beauty of reading. At the same time she tells vividly about her native country, the turbulent and violent events and this all the time with immense love for her country and its rich history.

I'm so looking forward to reading this! Thanks, aava!

Edit Jan 6th 2015: I've tried to read this book a couple of times, but never got past the first 50 pages, so it's time to let it move forward. I'll meet some bc friends today and I'm hoping to find a new reader for this book!

I had planned to release this book tothe bookswap shelf at Helsinki airport when leaving for a trip to Greece. But it so happened that although we were at the airport early, there was some trouble with the check-in and luggage, and as our gate was in the other end of the airport, I didn't have time to run to drop the book at the swap place. So it traveled with me to Athens and the lovely island of Lemnos, and then back to Finland, where I finally remembered to release it before taking a bus back to Tampere. So, this book has traveled a lot even though you can't see it on its journal. :)
