52 in 52 Week 49: Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
While I had a hard time with the beginning of the book because I have never read Lolita and was afraid the author would spoil the book for me. I am glad I persevered. This author is so insightful about the changes that took place in Iran after the Shah fell in 1979. I love how she weaves literature into the narrative. It is an excellent book
I didn't really care for the narrator. Her accent really annoyed me. Couldn't they have found a Persian to read the book? I think that would have been much more effective. Other than this, I loved this book.
