A invaluable personal account of revolution
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes I wouldThis book recounts the intimate events of the life of the author around the time of revolution. However, the author's well written analysis of the events that lead to the revolution and immediate aftermath of it in addition to his thoughtful description of the personalities that he encountered during those years provide an invaluable insight into the mind and philosophy of those currently in power in Iran. This is a must read (listen) for anyone who is interested in making sense of the iranian revolution and its inner workings.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Tales of Two Cities?
The authors account of his incarceration and encounters with interrogators and prisoners.
What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He mispronounced most of the persian words but his soothing and effective English reading was more that compensated for that.
