I made it to page 130 of ~400 of Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi before I decided, with much chagrin, to put it down. As such, I don’t feel it’s fair to give this book a starred rating. Instead, I’ll attempt to write about my initial impression of the book and how it made me feel.
Why choose to read Reading Lolita in Tehran now? It was first published 12 years ago, and has won numerous accolades from critics and ordinary readers alike.
