This book should be read by women in western countries, if only to shut our mouths about how pathetically easy our lives are and how easily we take our freedom for granted.
Nafisi is a beautiful writer and she broke my heart numerous times with this book, specifically when she writes about the bombings and the mirror feelings of knowing it is not you who has died, the happiness of not being blown up, but knowing that someone else has been, and the sorrow and guilt you feel because of your own elation.
