Things I've Been Silent About
reviewed on + 5 more book reviews


This book was a real disappointment after "Reading Lolita in Tehran," which I thought was fantastic. Ironically, given the title of the book, I thought there were too many things the author left unsaid; after reading it, I didn't feel particularly enlightened about her or pre-revolutionary Iran. Also, considering this is a memoir, I felt the timeline of events was confusing in many places; I had a hard time figuring out what year the described events were taking place or how old the author was at the time.
