Recommended for: fans of travel literature and/or those interested in Iranian culture
Read in April, 2007

I definitely decided after reading this book that I'm not interested in visiting Iran anytime soon. I don't think I would deal well with the restrictions and the government's control that dare not be questioned. But the book was fascinating--and Ian's identity was a really funny twist. I think it's actually perfect to read travel literature about countries you're not interested in visiting--that was you learn about them without needing to visit--and come away richer for it, monetarily AND intellectually.
