After 20 years
First time I read this book I was 11 years old in the midst of Iran-Iraq war, my country suffered so much of two major event back to back, 1979 revolution and war. This book was among forbidden books you could never find as a school boy. My friend and I found an old library and saved it from destroying. The owner were about to sell it for nothing. I can remember the smell of those old pages. Today I was surfing on the book store on my iPad, found this book again and started to read it. What a pleasure! What a pleasure! What a pleasure!
I had to read this book for a school assignment so this came in handy! This is a great version of the book as well.
