Anita Amirrezvani has a way of writing, and I am captured by the book, and the girl with no name. But I do think the sex scenes were a little too many, and they made me dislike the girl. I have read other books with girls who fall so suddenly for someone in that way, and I never did like it. Other than that I liked this book and I couldn't put it down. I loved the history, and glimpses of an age gone. I never thought I could be that interested in how carpets are made.The book has a rhythm, and she weaves the threads into a beautiful story. Worth noticing are the 8 old Persian stories that are told in the book, either by the girls mother or by herself. The create a sort of magic that isn't lost.I do want to read more of her, but this is a her first book and hopefully more are coming. If they are set in that time and place the better. She is an author to look out after.
