This was really a fascinating book, expertly reported by Azadeh Moaveni, Times writer and author of Lipstick Jihad. It was funny, provocative and insightful. It gave me a bit of a picture into the complicated world of Iran and highlighted how vast the immigration experience is. Having spent a large portion of her life in the US she has come to romanticize elements of Islam while her fiance, raised in Germany and closer to Iran has a more negative view of the impact of Islam. I have to say, I was a bit confused by the political history lesson which sometimes overtook the story, and I hungered for more of her personal voice. But overall it was a great read.
