Laughing with "Funny in Farsi"





















I laughed really hard at some points during reading these two books. To me, Firoozeh Dumas-with no doubts- is a stunning story teller!
My number one favorite character in these books is her father, my "vote" this time goes for himself if you know what I mean. :D

I read funny in Farsi long ago and it was really something!
As well as you, I loved that funny father very much...
I am gonna find some time to read the other one; it is worthwhile trying!

I've only read "funny in Farsi" and I loved it. It was not only funny but sweet. Firoozeh Dumas is an exceptional writer with a very good sense of humor. Also what I admire about her is the way she acknowledged her parents (not directly) in several parts of the book.

I should read these two, I never heard of it ;)

I've only read Funny in Farsi, found the beginning hilarious and the rest perhaps a little repetitive. But it made me discover that a number of things I thought were particular to my family were actually pure Iranian, like rating restaurants by the cleanliness of their washrooms!
I will get the second one, thanks Behi!
