Year 4, Book 52

52. Things I’ve Been Silent About by Azar Nafisi
This book is another memoir by the author of Reading Lolita in Tehran. This one focuses on her family, mostly focusing on her mother and father. She also of course touches on some of the things that were going on politically in Iran while she was growing up. I found this book to a bit tedious after awhile. As is true of many people her parents had certain ways of acting that carried throughout their lives. They never seemed to grow past these things and so it seems that most of the book is spent telling similar tales about the same fights and same problems over and over again. I give it a 5 out of 10.
