Maybe it is too real. After I read it, the bad dreams come back about SAVAK. Now I see my therapist again. It's OK. It needed to happen. I'm already better.
I feel much love from this book. Fari is my sister. I think she must to be a very special person. I hope I can be like her.
I am glad to read this to the end!!
God bless Iran. Hope to be free soon.
Sorry my English is not so good.
As a slice of history, "The Man Who Fooled SAVAK", shows us a part of the world that America was intricately involved yet few Americans know about. America's establishment of the Shah in 1953 via CIA organized coup is the thorn in the side of the Iranian psyche that eventually leads to the 1979 revolution and the taking of the 52 American hostages. SAVAK was the organization that America helped create so the Shah could initially 'weed out' the communist influence in his own military forces, but as the power of SAVAK grew the deadly mission extended to all threats against the regime both external and internal. In Roberts' book, we are still 8 years from the revolution but the seeds are sown. Another interesting aspect of this novel is the author/character's backstory. Before arriving in Tehran as a draftee, Doug Roberts is a student anti-war activist at Kent State University.Read more ›

Loved this book. I hated to have it end. A good mix of romance, suspense and history. Very well written. A page turner.Published on May 6, 2014 by Foewillis
I lived in Tehran in the 1970's, and the cityscape Roberts describes is familiar to me. However, the perspective from his personal experience was quite enlightening. Read morePublished on June 23, 2013 by Christine Westberg
Easy read...gives you a "back-door" look at Iran in the early years leading up to the Revolution. Robert's text places you in Tehran just as the pot starts to boil. Read morePublished on June 4, 2013 by Lew Shuman
A book you can't put down. Kept me on the edge all the way to the end. A story of romance and drama. A very good read...Published on March 15, 2013 by Laurie Smith
An enjoyable story and educational peek at a culture and a way of life abnormal to the majority.
We hope Roberts continues creating scenarios; witty, surprising and educating!
