    Overall, its a very interesting book, and a great look into Iranian life for those of us on the outside, but it cant help but pale in comparison to the more famous work by Marjane Satrapi. Persepolis managed to tell a similar personal story, but it provided historical sweep and context, making the book feel like it was about an entire culture rather than just one person. Bashi, on the other hand is almost solipsistic in her take, with everything filtered through her emotion and experiences. It still makes for an arresting tale, but one in which the reader has to remind themselves is not unique, rather than one that places itself within the context of a wider culture. But even though there are criticisms to be had, its still a vital, interesting work, and one that shouldnt be ignored in favor of something more popular. Read Full Review
