Disappointing, I guess the author was largely entertained by his own poetic tone. An example, talking about the pre-Reformist era: 'Happiness was a worldly sin; laughter was a crime...The Islamic republic opposed and banned music, arts, and all cultural symbols of modern life' p.48. Come on! What kind of picture is this? How about all those movies, plays and traditional music? The comedy series aired by the national TV? The book is packed with this sort of faulty and exaggerated pictures.
