It is a good and light read, but the author has a problem with Islam. Her writing is biased, and I didn't really enjoy it as I expected.. let alone my deep hate to talkative women.. and she was very talkative in this book!
The 3 starts for her review to interesting books.. A new perspective was added to them.

Azar Nafisi
“You get a strange feeling when you're about to leave a place, I told him, like you'll not only miss the people you love but you'll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you'll never be this way ever again.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran

Azar Nafisi
“Do not, under any circumstances, belittle a work of fiction by trying to turn it into a carbon copy of real life; what we search for in fiction is not so much reality but the epiphany of truth.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran

Azar Nafisi
“It takes courage to die for a cause, but also to live for one.”
