Then They Came for Me: A Family's Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival by Maziar Bahari
Then They Came for Me: A Family's Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival

SarahAnn, January 1, 2012

I saw Maziar Bahari on The Daily Show and heard him on Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and found him to be a fascinating person with a delightful way of telling stories, and when I picked up his book, I was not disappointed. This book tells his story of life in an Iranian jail, how he got there, what it took for him to survive, and how he sustained his morale. It was a great read, I spent many a night up later than I intended because I was so engrossed in this story. Definitely worth a read, it was a really interesting look at Iran and Iranian politics in the modern day.
