Purchased at Miami's library book sale.

I didn't expect this to be such a serious read, although had I read the backcover, I would have seen the words: "perfect blend of political commentary and social observation". No mention of romance. The author also employs a very formal style of writing, maybe because she writes for Time magazine: "we settle on a fancy stroller that appeased my pregnancy consumption needs", "Dr. Majidi seemed to have resolved his personal travails", "the converse is not true", "my mood labile from the hormonal swings of early pregnancy"... so even funny incidents don't generate a chuckle. I almost put the book down early on, except that a little voice in me said that I should occasionally read something more substantial.

It turned out to be a good read. The political part (election and power change) did get a little over my head, but it was an eye-opener of how life is like in Iran from a very insider view (the author is Iranian American).

And oh, I went to have a nice lunch buffet at a Persian restaurant - always like to do a bit themed eating with my reads.
