I enjoyed reading it very much, in particular the contrasts between the books they were reading and the life the real women of the story had to experience daily in Iran. I also absolutely love her analysis of Nabokov's novels. Small stories are intertwined with literary analysis of the work of four great European/American authors. But the stories don't need to be big. The absurdity of their life under the new Iranian regime is shocking exactly because of these small details the author shares.
