I will never again look at PersianIranian carpets in the same way This book makes me want to view many examples of such carpets so that I can now fully appreciate their artistryThis is a finely crafted first novel and I really hope that this author writes novels I love her writing style and storytellingI was completely immersed in the story characters and the time place of this book I loved the stories within the story the depiction of a particular woman s life and a look into the various life experiences of all the characters My only minor complaint is that possibly too much happened right at the end of the book it took a long time to get there I enjoyed the journey but it seemed a bit packed toward the end and even though I understand the reasoning of leaving the end partially up to the readers imaginations I would have loved to know about what happened next and far into the future for that matterSo this is the book that finally perhaps will break me of my habit of reading every single word on the cover and in the inside flaps and any reviews included We ll see As usual I read all the text mentioned before I read the book I therefore then kept waiting for certain things to happen rather than just enjoying the story as it unfolded and being able to be completely surprised as events occurred Even though I haven t yet followed my own advice I d suggest reading the novel first and then if interested reading the text not written by the authorHowever even though I read a hardcover edition which often doesn t include such extras I thought the book was greatly enhanced by the included author s notes at the end of the book I would have enjoyed the novel as much without them but the information was very interesting and along with the novel piued my interest in seventeenth century Iranian history especially as it pertains to women 性食鬼 1 get there I enjoyed the journey but it seemed a bit packed toward the end and even though I understand the reasoning of leaving the end partially up to the readers imaginations I would have loved to know about what happened next and far into the future for that matterSo this is the book that finally perhaps will break me of my habit of reading every single word on the cover and in the inside flaps and any reviews included We ll see As usual I read all the text mentioned before I read the book I therefore then kept waiting for certain things to happen rather than just enjoying the story as it unfolded and being able to be completely surprised as events occurred Even though I haven t yet followed my own advice I d suggest reading the novel first and then if interested reading the text not written by the authorHowever even though I read a hardcover edition which often doesn t include such extras I thought the book was سیاوش خوانی greatly enhanced by the included author s notes at the end of the book I would have enjoyed the novel as much without them but the information was very interesting and along with the novel piued my interest in seventeenth century Iranian history especially as it pertains to women
