    Although this is a very important book that I think everyone should read, I could not give it a higher rating because the style was stilted, sometimes unclear The author mangled English idioms in ways that were too distracting to the reader and did not make any sense Still this book does serve as ...

    It is a devastating short book and illustrates why there exists a complete disillusion of many of Iran s youth for the Ahmadinejad government, and now probably for Khamanei as well Told through a disturbing experience of one of many young men who were unfortunate enough to be caught protesting against the government and having his youth and innocence raped in police custody.Seemingly all books written of Iranian politics are on a macro level This book s uniqueness comes from being writt...

    Dystopia After reading this short account of the demonstrations which took place in 2009 after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hijacked the Iranian presidential election, dystopia is the best word I can think of to describe Iran.This little book will show you just what it s like to live in an Orwellian society that is completely controlled by Big Brother In fact, having recently finished reading 1984, this story seems like a continuation of the same story or a sequel to it.Death Brutal beatings Bra Dystopia After reading th...
