I also loved Moaveni's independence and courage.
I came away learning about how difficult it must be to have feet in such different worlds, but I don't think I learned what it is like to live in Iran for most people.
Azadeh is a very bright writer and did an excellent job of telling her story, great title too and very well chosen.
I have mixed feeling about this book. The writer is a reporter by trade and that comes across in the book. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sydney Croud
Wow, can Ms. Moaveni write. From page one I was completely drawn in thanks to the superlative writing (and also the subject matter, of course).Published 5 months ago by book lover
I wish that the author had concentrated more on her actual experiences in Iran and less on whining about how it failed to meet her expectations. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Biggles

It is a great electronic version of the book
I think it is wonderful that it is offered and more authors need to hop on board with the e book.
The book is a beautiful portrayal of what it is like to be a foreigner...in two countries. I think I would know as I had similar experiences myself.Published 16 months ago by turquise001998
