It took place in Iran and deals with a lot of cultural aspects. I recommend this book to anyone interested in Iran and stories around it. "

    "This is a good book. I like that it did a good job of showing what it is like for women living under Sharia Law. It will give westerners a glimpse into a world that can be hard to understand if you haven't experienced it. A lot of people take our freedoms for granted and this story will help you to appreciate them more."

    "My Uncle Napoleon is a twist on typical Iranian Fiction. It is a comic book, that peels back the layers of what Western cultures may think is stereotypical of the Iranian culture. The comic is fun and witty. It is full of social satire that expresses what Iranians think Westerners think. "

    "This is a gripping tale and an ambitious attempt. I felt like I was swept into Iran of the Shah and that was very good, but something is missing and I can't quite put my finger on it. Would still recommend."
