I would not try another of their books.
Spoiler Alert - A large part of it was fictional! I was furious when this was revealed at the end of the book.
I loved the individual interviews and personal quality of the questions. Very insightful.
The most important thing to know about this book is that it is a book of vignettes - not a novel with a story line that follows through from beginning to end. That being said, the stories were witty and sometimes quite funny. I had not read the first book but I don't know if that is why I felt like I was constantly missing something (a bit like leaving the theater to buy popcorn and coming back not knowing what happened).
The author reads the book. She is a novice but, at the same time, the language skills required to read a book of this nature are rare. I don't think it would have been the same had someone else attempted it.
What I enjoyed most was the insight in to life in Iran (pre-revolution) and the little bit of insight in to life for Iranians living in America during the hostage crisis.
I wish I had read the first one prior to reading this one.
Nope. Current public sentiment in the US is too ignorant to accept something like that.
