Azadeh Moaveni is a clever and likeable person, definitely the sort of woman you might want to be friends with. She writes in a personal context as a female journalist and, through this perspective, the reader acquires a very clear idea of the inner workings of a fundamentalist religious dictatorship, it's political and social repercussions for women, Iran and the world. As an expatriate she longed to get back to her Iranian roots. She shares this longing with the reader by mixing her experiences and adventures with elements of ancient and modern Iranian history, religion and culture. The book is probably most appealing to thoughtful women because there is some romance but male journalists or students of political science/international relations could benefit as well. I would definitely pick up her other books after reading this one.
