really liked it

I wanted to read this book after reading a review in People Magazine. I really liked this book. I feel like it helped me better understand the people of Iran, which I felt I wanted after all that has been said about them recently. It amazed me how such a normal college girl's life could instantly change. She is a protestor of the government (not technically illegal, but of course the government punishes the main leaders). The book is about her capture and time in jail...she is tortured so beware if you want to pick this up. If I remember correctly, it is not too graphic but of course is depressing. I would recommend this book though.
