    "This paperback book is great for many different reasons. First of all, it is by the author of persepolis which was a great book and movie... also, I think that it is shocking to get a look into iranian women's sex lives and it really changes your perception! highly recommended"

    "This is a weird graphic novel. I mean, have you ever wondered what's going on beneath the veils and body shrouding wraps that women in some Middle Eastern countries wear? Okay, I did. But this story is probably written for people who live there, because I didn't get most of the humor. And the art style was a little strange to my taste as well. Some of it was interesting or funny, but mostly I was just turning pages trying to figure out what I was missing. Not bad I guess, but it left me puzzled more than amused or interested."

    "This book was really good. It's a graphic novel about Iranian woman and the subject turns to sex and men. It's a perspective I'm not used to seeing (myself being an American male.) but I enjoyed it. It was funny and insightful. The illustrations were great as well. Good read all around."

    "This author has some very compelling works to her name, but this particular book of hers is not quite as excellent as some of her other ones. It deals with some of the day to day experiences that women in her native Iran go through, and is sort of interesting as a slice of life type of work, but her other titles are just more ambitious. It's not bad, but it's probably not entirely representative of the author's true potential."

    "The untold world of iranian women is depicted nicely in this book."

    "The history students or the people who loves different culture this is the best solution for them From the best–selling author of Persepolis comes this gloriously entertaining and enlightening look into the sex lives of Iranian women. Embroideries gathers together Marjane’s tough–talking grandmother, stoic mother, glamorous and eccentric aunt and their friends and neighbors for an afternoon of tea drinking and talking. Naturally, the subject turns to love, sex and the vagaries of men."

    "Embroideries (Pantheon Graphic Novels) is one of the best women in the world. It is very entertaining and lets you learn about things you otherwise wouldn't know about. It is worth reading if you like books but warning, there is some sexy talk in it."

    "I have always been interested in the culture of Iran. As an American, that world is often closed to us. This book gives a great insight into the local culture of Iran when it comes to dating and love. It is sometimes sad and often times hilarious. I believe that women from around the world will be able to relate to many of the stories that the women tell. It also shows the difference in thinking between the older generations and younger generations in Iran. This book paints a rich picture of the lives of local Iranian women. It is well-worth the read."
