Default Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi

I so badly wanted to love this book. I feel like I shouldve. My gram gave it to me. I appreciated it, but it took me a while to get through. Over 2 months.

I think it would have resonated with me more if I were interested in the literature she constantly dissects throughout the entire memoir. I found the memoir to be choppy and disorienting, but I enjoyed parts of it. Gaining insight to what the educated women went through during the Islamic Revolution was saddening. I wish she would have let us connect more with her students.

"hot and tasty" sounds a little bit dirty to me.

I read it a loonnnnnnng time ago and while I liked it, I was a little bit lost since I haven't read Lolita, and I don't think I ever will.

Read it a long time ago. I was interested in the literature. I still felt like you did.

One of the books that I felt I should have loved but never connected with.

I feel like you had to have read Lolita, The Great Gatsby, Madame Bovary, and a couple of others in order to connect with what she was trying to say. I felt like skimming a lot of the parts where she just droned on and on about the literature, and I *never* feel that way when I read.

I read most of the works and I still had a hard time connecting. Literary criticism aside she offered only a few glimpses that stood out for me on how brutal the regime had become for women and you had to dig deep to get to what I thought the book was going to focus on.

It also could just have been that the professor rubbed me the wrong way.
