mmm not my favorite, found it hard to get through although I will try the next in the series.
this was a very funny book that gives the reader an enjoyable glimpse into the Sedaris Family. It was a lot of fun, and made me laugh out loud.
I always wanted to add this book to my collection both volumes while I was out of country and when I got back I conducted an extensive search and found 1 of the 2 volumes esattamente.
A harrowing if at times dispassionate account of the concentration camps survivor clearly portrayed the ultimate emotional death which is more haunting then any physical suffering described.
When I was 3 1/2 my family moved to Iran. It is the first place that I have real memories of. I still remember the smell of the bazaar, the sound of the music and the feel of the heat. I remember jumping over fires on Nowruz, riding my bike to the main road to see the Shah drive by, and playing in the ruins of Persepolis. In 1979 we were evacuated, and my world changed. The dust and the heat of Iran worked their way into my heart and I will forever love the country and the people who live there. Terence Ward was also raised in Iran. His family left long before the revolution but they never forgot Hassan, their cook. Decades later they decided to return to Iran to find Hassan and his family. Terry's memories of his happy childhood are sprinkled in among the family's recent experiences in post-revolution Iran. The result is part travel guide, part history book and part love letter to a beautiful and magical country. I could not put this book down. If you love Iran as I do, this is a must read. If you want to know more about the country and the Iranian people, this is a must read.
Good, easy read. Intreaguiging
This was certainly a lesser Antrim work. Apparently he saw fit to jump on the bandwagon of novelists phoning it in with memoirs, a la Franzen. While we get Antrim's sui generis prose style, the book itself is a solipsistic mess without revelation or climax. Stick to his novels.
I have to read this book for my English class and so far I have gotten into it and would like to continue reading...Just no more homework for me!
Reasons I got drawn in: 1. the main character is named Wendy. 2. The first chapter starts with a attempted murder. 3. It was easy to read (no words longer then 7 letters). But then it became clear........ I just got myself hooked on another teen lit series!!!! Spazzola di!!!! So yes, I finished this first book and now I refuse to finish the trilogy, as I am not 16 and should be aspiring to reading something more advanced. Don't make the same mistake.
