Customer Review

Reviewed in India on 4 May 2019
When I began reading, I really loved it and enjoyed. But as you continue reading it it might get a bit monotonous and the typical diasporic life complications and teenage issues. It's not anything unique. Except for the humour, which is quite nice and fresh, the book doesn't have anything new to offer. It's a fresh and light read for the lazy readers in graphic novel format, so you don't have to read much. But I didn't really have much to take back from the book. It's extremely cliche and also gets boring and predictable after one point of time. Everything seems to be obvious. But keeping that aside, it's a good coming of age novel and the comic element is good. Iranian lifestyle is portrayed well in it as well. Political references are also well established. I would go with three stars as I had heard very highly of this book but didn't find anything very great.
