Picture
Not only is this book beautifully written with picture painting descriptions and intricately woven words, it is replete with deep emotion, history of Iran, understanding of classic books and poems, poetry from Iranian authors and staunch patriotism.

I liked several things about the story itself - I found inspiring Mr Nafisi's pursuit of love and a dream companionship. I found the patriotism displayed, the love and yearning for Iran & her progress very worthy. If all politically steeped families were like the Nafisi household, then many countries would be far progressive than they are today. I found the depth of Mr Nafisi's and Azar's understanding and knowledge of Iranian poems, their authors, universal classics and literature very admirable. I never related classics or poetry to life itself...simply a thing of beauty born of it. 
Lastly, the Iran painted in Nafisi's book is gorgeous in its history, in its struggle and in its culture. I cant wait to plan a visit to Iran someday. This notion itself should speak volumes about Nafisi's 'Things I've been Silent About'.

    I get lost in books and live their lives until I turn the last page. I ponder a while, carry the laughter, shed a few tears and sigh. Then the thirst for more arises.
