    I was really disappointed by the ending in this book But I loved the story and I loved her character so I went with giving it a 4 I'm a little surprised by some of the comments about the protagonist I thought the things that happened to her were well worth the self pity and I found her to be a strong woman and mother despite this This book truly represented motherhood and sacrifice to me and I saw zero weakness in that until of course the last 30 pages or so

    This book was indeed a 5 stars oneIt shows you the power of sacrifice at its highest pick the mark of a war of traditions of community for families and especially women in Iran Made me realize that things that I get for granted in my life could be so hard to achieve for others I couldn't stop reading it Truly recommend

    It wasn't the first book I read about the hardships of that era of Iran's bloody history weather it was a memoir or a fiction the other books narrated how the lives of their characters were affected and shaped by the years of war fear executions and separation they expressed a certain political opinion towards the Shah's fallen regime or the Islamists condemning or praisingBut this book was all about Massoumeh herself than her life shaped by Iran's political transformations I didn't like almost all of the characters in the book except for Parvaneh I hated Massoumeh's fanatic brothers her whining nagging character I didn't like that typical storyline where she united with her lost love after like forty years she widowed and he separated like a low production movie and to make it typical and annoying she just give her youth dream up the one she tried to kill herself over for no logical reasons real life just doesn't work like that real life doesn't offer such chances I can't see why this book was banned in Iran a book like children of the jacaranda tree can have such banning or things I have been silent about but not this book that was of a life story than a nation story I didn't find it good because I started reading it with different expectations than it has offered to me I had hard time finishing it unlike children of the jacaranda tree which was hard to read because of the emotional burden it imposed this one was sometimes too boring

    THIS REVIEW IS FILLED WITH SPOILERS READ AT YOUR OWN RISK Extreme mixed feelings about this book I loved it while at the same time I hated it The entire life of Massoumeh is spent with her working so hard not for her happiness but for the sake of survival and for her children's happiness She deserved an awful lot than what she got What bothers me so much and what I just can't seem to wrap my head around is the ending After all that time she still didn't end up with poor Saiid Whom would've been nothing but her key to a happy and fulfilling life This book has been etched into my mind since the 2 days ago when I first began to read it Massoumeh suffered too much her brother Ahmad's death was not as horrible as it should have been I had wished to see some character development on his part MAHMOUD WAS THE BIGGEST PISS OFF Honestly what saddens me most about this book is how Hamid failed to realize the importance of family and his duty s not only a father but a husband as well The second thing that makes me swell with sadness is how Massoum never ended up with Saiid SIGH However apart from all things I didn't like I did enjoy many aspects of this book It was truthful and excellent in portraying the unfortunate events of Iran's political situation during that time era and evenstill to this day I liked how it demonstrated how politics even affected the young someone who wasn't involved at all Lastly I loved the character development of Massoumeh She was a shy proper teenager whom grew into an exceptionally strong intelligent and selfless individual Her self sacrifice was painful to bear I also loved her lifetime friendship with Parvaneh Exceptional book with many heartbreaks however this is how life works Our destiny is written the day we are born and I guess there's nothing for us to do about that fact except to endure our hardships to the best of our ability and enjoy with all our might the goodtimes we are given Massoumeh is definitely one of my most favorite characters I just truly wish she had ended up with Saiid that woman deserved some self happiness in her last few years

    Despite being banned twice in Iran “The Book of Fate” is a bestseller and a book that will change your perspective on life Complex and easy to name it intense the story will make you read it in one go I was passing through lots of emotions during each page turn so I totally recommend it to anyone The author Parinoush Saniee is subtle when it comes to revealing painful facts about Iran You will discover a hidden world through the book’s linesMassoumeh a strong character that you will hardly forgetIf you love strong women characters “The Book of Fate” is inspirational and a life lesson Here is my full review Book of Fate should be in all librariesEducational inspirational and a great lecture even for the picky ones The Book of Fate will go straight to your heart I cried I was angry but also understood Masumeh’s decisions This book truly represented motherhood and sacrifice to me Iran’s women were the perfect example of power and sacrifice for the family’s honor Also it makes you realize that many of the things you have taken for granted are so precious for someones

    There are no words to describe this bookI didn't expect to be such a life changing book I must say that I lied about ALL the books I said they were life changing This ONE is LIFE CHANGINGIt makes you believe that women have power and in the end you discover they don't You discover that for every decision you make you must look for others opinion Just something you can't describe in words If I were to draw a painting I would draw birds because they are free but they can't reach the universe It's not a book for boys but it's a book for strong and determined women and I just can't find my words to describe this amazing Can't call it book It's a masterpiece

    One of the reviewer on GR called this a masterpiece I couldn't agree I was hooked from the first page My only disgruntlement is that the book isn't thick enough As I reached the final page all I could think of was 'Where are the rest of the pages?? It cannot end like this' When you feel that way even after reading 450 pages and you still cannot get enough of it you know you have found a real gem; a story that is worth reading and will be in memory for years to come

    What can i say about this novel It was an easy read I felt I could identify with it in every way as the society I live in is not so different from other eastern societies in terms of culture and norms I have read before and had some idea about the revolution in Iran but this novel gave me insight into what happened to the simple individuals and people in the country and shed some light on to how different societies suffer from the same political and social hypocrisies I could really identify with the main character's struggles Massiumeh and suffering to just lead a normal and simple life It hurt me how she was always sold out as she says from one person to the other First by her brothers who saw that she wasn't a humanbeing just like them then her husband who in the name of freedom oppressed her in different ways then her children in the end who treated her like she was exclusively their own property and some kind of statue that has no heart or needs or feelings This is how women are always oppressed not in the name of religion necessarily but sometimes in the name of some university book ideologies that call for the rights of women but in reality oppress them in different ways It really shocked me how she described Iran after the revolution and it brought back so many memories of my own How all these people who were once together have committed atrocities to eachother and how in the name of religion everything was distorted and real freedom has become of a mirage of beautiful slogans that had nothing to do with reality It shocked me that we are living the same catastrophe as though we humanbeings never learn from the past and are always committing the same mistakes other nations and generations have committed like we never ever learn Or perhaps we are too hopeful and think we will be somehow different from othersI like Massoumeh because i could understand her religious affiliations and her feeling of resentment towards using religion for personal gain and how her husband Hamid who supposedly believed in Communism and freedom was just as bad by letting his family down one time after the other and being so indifferent and irresponsible towards them I noticed also how she has shown the double standards we suffer from in our socities where her son was to lead a very westernized approach when it came to his life but when it came to his mother's he suddenly acted differently eventhough she was not going to commit a crime or do anything wrong according to religion but just because of some stupid traditions and in the name of honour for a dead man who has brought nothing but misery to her life as well Also how women oppress eachother sometimes by giving in to some chauvinistic nonesense that they become worse than some men themselves I expected her daughter Shirin out of all to feel for her and understand her needs but she was the worst amongst her children in denying her mother from her basic right after all the sacrifices she has made for her them over the years I guess i didn't like the ending eventhough it was very realistic because it made me feel that in the end Massoumeh gave in and didn't resist to obtain what's lawfully hers It seems all her life she had to be grateful for the little she got eventhough it was her basic right It broke my heart that she didn't fight till the very end and she was expected as usual to sacrifice her own happiness for others as if it was her dutyOne of the things I really liked is how balanced she was in everything She portrayed an honest and beautiful image of her society and this balanced image is never welcome anywhere in the world i guess Finally the only thing i didn't like was the ending and some parts which were a bit dramatic but i guess it is normal in some novels

    Heart wrenching and painful at times I lost count as to how many times I cried still I enjoyed this book very much If you are familiar with the culture and history of Iran pre and post revolution you can understand that this story can very much be real Set against the backdrop of pre and post revolution Iran the narrator and heroine of the story is faced with obstacles that are beyond her control and rooted in an oppressed culture Thought provoking and constantly suspenseful my only gripe was the last 100 pages which at times felt contrived and out of place Also the sudden disappearance of key characters from the story felt odd If you are looking for something different and enjoy history read this book
