This book really touches the heart and soul in a big way. It is hard to put down. You want to keep reading one more page, one more page."
I was amazed with the information I got about Iranian revolution and how people gave their lives in a hope for better tomorrow.

What I was mostly touched with was Nader's character. Nader was a very spiritual and passionate person. He had a rare connection with the world that most people don't have - some might be doubtful that it even exists. But, through the telling of his tale, I believed in it. His spirituality and passion for his country and his one true love were heartwarming and inspiring.

I remember that I was in tears several times when I was reading this book. The love that he could not forget from childhood to man hood, the family that he loved so, and all of his journey through his life to get him here and make him the caring person that he is today.
