I didn't hate it by any means, but neither did I absolutely love it. The reason why I couldn't love it was because of how confusing I found it at times, and I wasn't able to read it at a faster pace- it took me quite a while to finish. The way in which the book is written is interesting and unique and I appreciated that, but ultimately the ending of it did not satisfy me. I definitely enjoyed learning more about Iranian history and a culture that I know little about. I probably wouldn't really recommend it to many people because I believe it takes a certain kind-of person to really enjoy this entire novel for what it is, and I wasn't that kind-of person.

Blind Date With A Book comment: 'for me, the author kept getting in the way, so it was a laborious read. I imagine, though, it's laborious as well for Iranian would-be lovers to get to the end of their own stories."

This book was an awesome exploration of a writer's relationship with his craft and country. It's the epitome of "meta"...a book about writing a book.

I just wish I knew more about Iranian culture, legends, and literature; I felt like many references soared over my head!
