کتاب بسیار بسیار جالبی بود . اگر کسی به طنز اجتماعی علاقه داشته باشه و دلش بخواد از روحیات ایرانی ها سر در بیاره واقعا ازش لذت می بره .

کتابی بسیار جالب که روحیات و خلق و خو و آداب و رسوم و اعتقادات ایرانیان در زمان قاجار را نشان میدهد.برای من جالب است که ریاکاری، سالوسی، چاپلوسی و جانماز آبکشیِ آدمها در این کتاب به خوبی و صریح نشان داده شده و اینکه به جای عقل و خرد، در واقع جهل و خرافات و عقاید پوسیده در بین مردم خریدار داشته است. البته با کمی تفاوت در ظاهر امور، همین الان هم میشود همان مسایل را در جامعه دید و تشخیص داد که فقط رنگ و لعابش تغییر کرده.

Recommends it for: Those who are interested in Persian literature around Constitutional Revolution in Iran(1906)
Shelves: persian-fictions
The Story is rewritten in a very well formulated Persian language contains lots of satire and irony ...

The picaresque story of a Persian Tom Jones, written by an Englishman with his tongue firmly in his cheek. Morier is determined to elicit the right kind of laughter from the right kind of reader in 1937 (as you might expect from an English gentleman with the middle name Justinian), to wit

"Tell me, Mirza Ahmak [said the king], by what extraordinary arrangement of Providence does it happen, that we Mussulmans should be the only people on earth who can depend upon our wives, and who can keep them i

من متاسفانه نسخه تصحیح مدرس صادقی رو نداشتم و کتاب با انتشارات نگاه رو خوندم، که ویراستاری بسیار بدی داشت. خود سرگذشت، از این لحاظ که وضعیت زندگی و جامعه اون زمان رو خیلی خوب تصویر می کرد،برام جالب بود.

کتاب را نه از نظر روحیات ایرانی (که البته جا دارد این کتاب، حضور دارد این نویسنده) بلکه از حیث نثر باید خواند و از حیث یک جور ترجمه که در ایران قدمت دارد و خبر می دهد از یک نوع نگاه به متن و فکر و ترجمه
Alireza
هر ایرانی باید این کتاب رو حداقل 2 بار بخونه

کتاب جالبی بود مخصوصا ترجمه ی بسیار قوی داشت مثل این بود که داری متن اصلی کتاب نویسنده ی بزرگ ایرانی رو میخونی و همچنین استفاده مناسب از زبان طنزگونه بسیار زیبا و دلنشین بود!در واقع این کتاب آداب و رسوم ایرانیان رو بیان می کرد
Linda
Written so long ago, it only serves to further the Western stereotype of Arab mentality and customs. Interesting but not vital. Gulliver's Travels meets Aladdin.

فقط میتونم بگم کتاب فوق العاده ای بود.باید بخونید تا متوجه بشید.به زیبایی هرچه تمام تر عادات و فرهنگ ایرانی هارو به تصویر کشیده.

Certainly immerses you in another world, without going off the planet.
