Das von mir gekaufte Buch war eine Empfehlung eines Freundes und ich habe es fast in einem Rutsch gelesen. In einer sehr schönen englischen Sprache erfährt man vielschichtig die Zeit eines Kindes, welches in Zeiten des Umbruchs im Iran aus dem Iran flieht und sich im Londen der achziger Jahre zurechtfinden muss.
Vielschichtig, da mehrere Aspekte angesprochen werden:
- Umbruch im Iran, Leben der Exiliraner
- Eingewühnung eines Migrantenkindes in die Welt der Kinder ders Gastlandes (England)
- Aufeinandertreffen zweier verschiedener Kulturen
- alltägliches aus der Familie, Zusammenleben mit dem Bruder
- Kindheit und Probleme mit Erwachsenen

A great read, made me sad one moment and laugh out loud the next (read it on a train and got a lot of funny looks, since I kept giggeling). Shappi tells her life-story from the eyes of a child, which makes the often horrifying and unfair things adults do seem even more absurd. Still, she tells it in such a warm-hearted and honest way, that it draws you into her world and you can't help finishing the book in one go. Definetly recommend this book.

Das Buch ist interessant für Leser, die sich mit der Geschichte de Iran beschäftigen. Es bietet auch Grundlagen für eine Diskussion über Migrationserfahrungen. Literarisch ist die Kinderperspektive gelungen.Zum Teil redundant.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A vivid image of Iran 17. Mai 2013
Von Dina Sadek - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
AS much as the book might seem to some when you pick it up as if it a growing up reminiscing about irrelevant typical childhood stories, but it is hardly typical to grow up in a country that isn't yours, you don't speak the language, your color immediately tells the other children that you are different and you are essentially running away because the mullahs are out to get your father.

These aren't childhood stories; this is a very real and vivid image of the lives of the Iranian diaspora community during the pre-revolution and post-revolution era. However, the stories being told as if you are being told by a child adds to the emotions you are bound to experience reading this book, because you know that this book is being written by the author as an adult, but the emotions and experiences in the book, weren't. The author basically tells the reader that Iran is more than what you read in articles and watch on the news; it is people's life. The good times and the laughs, the cries and the suffering time; these are all Iran. There is a very human side to everything that is happening in countries like Iran that we sometimes we forget as we watch them on the news.

Shaparak Khorsandi, thank you for sharing your experience with the world.
3.0 von 5 Sternen A Bit Disappointing at First 1. Juni 2013
Von tom thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have seen Ms Khorsandi on tv shows and found her funny and witty. So I brought a lot of expectations to this book. I was disappointed initially because I had a hard time figuring out the time frame - i.e., when were they in Iran and when they moved to England. Notes on the background of her family and her well-known father indicated they had to flee Iran at the time of the rebellion. However, they actually moved to London when her father was assigned to his newspaper's London office a year or so before the rebellion. And while her depictions of how a child (mis)understands the adult worlds in both England and Iran are often charming, there is nothing new about these kinds of observations. Many authors do this in their memoirs. The book does improve as she grows older and is more comprehending. But I expected a bit more comedy.

Having written that, I must add that when the author gets to her father's return to Tehran and discovers that while he felt he was a child of the revolution, the people there were not what he was expecting, I felt a kindred soul. I had lived in Iran off and on over two decades and I was in Iran in 1978 and early 1979. I was somewhat taken aback when I realized that while I personally was supporting the revolution, no one was interested very much in what I, personally, thought. They had already dismissed me as irrelevant. As a journalist, Hadi Khorsandi was not, of course, irrelevant but I saw too many Iranians who had looked forward for so long to a country without a dictator become quickly disillusioned and totally disappointed when the Islamicists gained the upper hand. The rest is history - none of us can go back.

This is the first truly personal, "insider," Iranian viewpoint I've read and I had a great deal of empathy for the author and her family.

One last note on grammar/usage. I would have thought that perhaps the author would make some mistakes - the persistent use of nominative "I" when the object "me" is required following a preposition but her editors should be severely chastised.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Very Talented Woman's Story 21. Juli 2010
Von Julia A. Andrews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As my Brit husband and I turned on the Graham Norton Show the other night we were delighted to see a fave actress Toni Collette as a guest. The other woman on Norton's show has a stand up comedy act in the UK and is Iranian. (I bet I will NEVER use those words together in a sentence again in my life.) She was an unknown talent to us, but her humour and crowd chemistry was easily noticed. This particular night made it one of Graham's best with much of the accolades going directly to Shappi. Charming, funny and witty we would love to see Shappi on US television again. When this memoir was mentioned I immediately went to Amazon UK and USA but it had a 3 month delay to be shipped.

It was worth the wait.

Her story is remarkably touching, not the usual radical comedic send up. A very pleasant surprise. Told through her childhood eyes her family's exile into England to escape Iran after the fall of the Shah is delightfully innocent and full of love for all her family, home country and newly adopted one. Of course she would not be Shappi without a humorous take on life, but it is a gentle, delicate and sincere one.

Enjoy the read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fascinating tale that captures the essence of human comedy 20. Februar 2011
Von J. Olin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
UK comedienne Shappi Khorsandi's autobiographical story on her family's departure from her home in Iran to London during the fall of the Shah. It was a random chance to have seen Ms. Khorsandi on the BBC-America when she was a gust on the Graham Norton show. She was an articulate and quite literate humorist and off-handedly referenced her book that was coming out soon. A few days later I found it on Amazon and was reading away.

It is a bittersweet story that Ms. Khorsandi tells - and as a parent who has moved our family a few times, one forgets that the views of our children are certainly different from the adults who control their lives. I heartily recommend this well-written and well-told story for anyone who is interested in a personal look at how major events in our society shape individuals.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting child's perspective non-fiction read 22. November 2010
Von Jen Bakes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I ordered this based on seeing the author's appearance on the Graham Norton show on BBC America - she does comedy now in Great Britain and it promised to be an interesting story about how she went "on the run" with her family after the upheaval in Iran in the '70's (I'm greatly simplifying). It's told largely from her recollections as a child and really comes from that perspective. If you enjoy non-fiction this is a different story and not self-serving at all. It was more about living away from your homeland than being on-the-run, and was a good window into Iranian culture.
