    a must read!!

    Roxana Saberi brings home to many Iranians and other "stuck in between two culutre peoples" the ultimate struggle to be true to your heritage or stand up for what is right.Once again a person in a position of weakness stands up to the might of a system created to intimidate and humiliate a totally innocent person into submitting untruths for the sick and twisted games played by the Iranian regime.
    Any one interested to know what fate befalls almost all political and religious prisoners in Iran must read this book. I particularly enjoyed learning first hand about the traetment my fellow Bahai compatriots are having to deal with in jail and how they helped Roxana to be strong. Well done for penning such a well written account of your awful experience Ms. saberi.

    Saberi's account of her time in prison in Iran on mysterious charges is absolutely invaluable. She tells her story with great honesty and insight, not sparing herself anymore than she does her captors. She went through the looking glass and came back with this book. it isn't to be missed.

    An unplanned stay in Iran

    I enjoyed reading this book very much. I had followed her story in the news in newspapers and on television. I wanted to know what it was like in an Iranian prison and how inmates were treated. I also wanted to hear from her perspective what she was accused of. Her parents live in Fargo, ND and I live in a small town about 90 miles from there. My youngest son had a couple classes with her at Concordia College so I felt a little connected somehow. I also remember her when she was a reporter for one of the Fargo television stations. She always impressed me as a reporter. I wish her well in her future career as a journalist or whatever career she decides to pursue.
