Brigette Reviews Embroideries

Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi


Describe it in 25 words or less. A little peek into the sex lives of a group of Iranian women.

Any particular reason for choosing this book? Pete had read Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis and really enjoyed it, so I thought I’d give this one a try. Unfortunately I did not feel the same about this book.

Genre: Graphic Novel

Who was your favorite character and why? Parvine because she was a strong, modern woman with heart.

Who was your least favorite character and why? Grandma because she was the opposite of a sweet granny.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? It was immediately entertaining; almost like you were listening in on a very personal conversation.

What did you think of the ending? Harsh.

What was the moral of the story? Be careful who you marry.

Favorite quote: “One isn’t born courageous, one becomes it.” – Parvine

Who would you recommend it to? Women who like frank, slightly disturbing gossipy discussions about sex and relationships.

Number of unknown words: 0

Craft/Activity: Learn to make tea in a samovar.

How much of your sex life do you discuss with friends and/or family?
