a must read for today's times

by childofthe70s on Sep 18, 2007

I must admit, I can be a sucker for this type of autobiography (Angela's Ashes), but I can't recommend this book highly enough. As a college student, majoring in International Affairs at the time of the Iranain revolution, this gave another look as to the dynamics in the Mid East. Initially supporting the current war in Iraq, I 'd grown disgusted with our handling of it. After finishing this book, I'm again re-thinking my position. As in Hitler's time, how can we turn our backs on what's going on over there? Roya makes you feel like you're living her experiences with her, makes you understand how these events came to be. It makes you wish that people like her, had the freedom to goback to her homeland and bring about change. I feel like starting a book club, just to get more people to read this!
