This was an wonderfully written book with a shocking ending. I suggest you reread the first few pages after you finish the book.

This book was very interesting regarding the life in Iran after the revolution. If you enjoy classic literature such as Jane Austin or Henry James then you will love this book.

Don't let the title fool you. I had to read this book for my book group and I thought it would be a dry tedious book. It's not. It's a short book so I planned to read a couple of chapters then go back to reading another book, but I couldn't put it down. I finished it in an afternoon. The format is a bit unusual. The main character, a Pakistani, relates his experiences before, during, and after 9/11 to an unnamed American visiting his home town.
