PrisonerWell much like the release of Jason Rezaian from the Iranian rison I am not free to move to another book Rating a memoir is very difficult his recounting is only of 544 days so it is just a short eriod of time out of his life and of a time when he is frustrated frightened and terribly worried I did appreciate the honesty with which his memories are resented and I feel for him each of the days he lost but life is rarely fair in the long run If you work a safe job live in a safe city then you are likely to have a safe life But those who risk are likely to get and sometimes the is than they expected The issue at hand is how to rate the memories of someone so the writing was not anything special The memories were rather glibly resented although I am not sure what he could say to make them deeper and meaningful The book was interesting and really nothing It was not than I expected nor his reaction less than one would expect from someone who is angry and frustrated 35 stars Happy Reading A great book and not what I expected I am embarrassed to share that I did not know much about Jason Rezaian s story other than the fact that he was in an Iranian rison and was associated with the Iran nuclear deal I assumed that this would be a rison memoir in the category of Unbroken with the author enduring and overcoming the trauma of abuse in captivity There is no torture in this book and that is art of the terrible deception of Rezaian s imprisonment His captors often emphasized that their treatment of him was not that bad They didn t beat or Les Ténébreuses - Tome I - La Fin d'un monde physically abuse him After spending months in solitary he was given a roommate and therison allowed him regular kabob deliveries and conjugal visits with his wife But none of this erases the fact that he was falsely imprisoned for a year and a half of his life in a nation where he had a legal visa to do the exact work that he was arrested for with no due Karneval, Vol. 4 process was regularly interrogated for the duration of his captivity and was separated from his wife and family with lies being spread about him on an international level not that bad Rezaian maintains a tone of fearless contempt and ridicule for his captors regularly referring to them as clowns and calling his judge without exaggeration one of the dumbesteople I have ever encountered This is a reminder that fools can ruin lives just as much as evil geniuses or sadists It s also a reminder that the bar should never be lowered to did they get tortured as a barometer for hardship in any country False imprisonment can destroy The Hiding Place peopleeriod When someone comes up to Jason Rezaian throws their arm around him and wants to hear all the juicy bits about how he underwent torture at the hands of his Iranian jailers they are somewhat taken aback when they discover that he wasn t hysically assaulted but underwent trauma at an even deeper level of the soul To such a erson it is not as vicariously thrilling But to read this generous and at times humorous memoir is to experience what this man suffered for 18 months not knowing whether he was going to walk free or undergo worse And during the early art suffering the anxiety of not knowing what Yegi his wife was facing since she had been arrested part suffering the anxiety of not knowing what Yegi his wife was facing since she had been arrested the same time as he It takes nothing away from the age turning uality of this book to know that they both survived their ordeals and live in the United States In fact whole sections reduced me to tears The continued efforts on the part of yegi his mother and brother ali of Yegi his mother and brother Ali well as his Washington Post confederates were instrumental in securing his release but it is his spirit and his ability to find something to laugh at each and every day that has made his eventual healing The Elephants Journey possible As with most books written by reporters the writing here is clear sharp and to theoint Last night I had the Sklaven für Wutawia + Gauner mit der 'Goldenen Hand' privilege of seeing him in conversation with W Kameau Bell his wife and mother also in the room Hisersona is one of gentle humorousness intelligence and makes me all the happier that things have turned out as they did for him I feel like this book is a missed opportunity I had heard about it on Pod Save America and Jason was a guest The book sounded really interesting and I was hoping to learn It was good for about the first 5% After that the narrator became totally unlikeable It is hard to say that in a memoir about being a captive in "an Iranian rison but it s true The narrator s voice started to feel so inauthentic as he was "Iranian rison but it s true The narrator s voice started to feel so inauthentic as he was just aiming for Changing Face of the Hero praise He s like the cool kid in high school that never gets over it The entire book was full of name dropping famouseople who a lot of times had nothing else to do with the story besides being mentioned once There were SO MANY cringey moments Jason is a misogynist and a racist He will take any opportunity he can to disregard a woman commenting on what she s wearing and how she looks To be honest I The Undisputed Greatest Writer of All Time: A Collection of Poetry put this book down several times and never had a desire toick it up and keep reading like I get with good books I wanted to finish it though This. “An important story Harrowing and suspenseful yes but it’s also a deep dive into a complex and egregiously misunderstood country with two very different faces There is no better time to know about Iran and Jason Rezaian has seen both of those faces”     Anthony BourdainThe dramatic memoir of the journalist who was held hostage in a high security StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story prison in Tehran for eighteen months and whose release which almost didn’t happen became aart of the Iran nuclear dealIn July 2014 Washington Post Tehran bureau chief Jason Rezaian was arrested by Iranian olice accused of spying for America The charges were absurd Rezaian’s reporting was a mix of human. Book is the definition of nonfiction that reads like fiction The author Washington Post Tehran bureau chief Jason Rezaian was arrested by Iranian Pure Chance police in July 2014 He was accused of spying for America which was and is absurd He details the initial arrest which tooklace in his and his wife s apartment and the thoughts that were going through his head Is this for real this sound like a movie The Lady and the Lionheart plot and It was so implausible but it was happening He s blindfolded way before BirdBox fa Update I ve a had a few months to sleep on this and I thought it s fair if I reduce my rating to 1 starI feel like a total asshole for giving this book a bad review But let me explainI m an Iranian and I deeply hate the Iranian government and how they treateople They are unjust brutal and terrifying at best and I would never ever ask someone to go and visit Iran while the current regime exists I ve left Iran 5 years ago and so far I ve heard of many of my friends being imprisoned like Jason for things they have not done I m sorry that Jason went through that and I think I can understand the terror and anger he must have felt and still does to this day But I need to talk about Jason himself in this book because several things bothered me I listened to the audiobook and he himself was the narrator This was not a good idea because now I know that I haven t imagined his tone His sexist and racist remakes the constant rofanity and smugness being roud of weird American things like McDonalds and rivate jets the name dropping making fun of eople s accents attire and looks thinking that he s above everyone and everything because he s an American citizen commanding his elderly mother constantly to do and many other small instances of his douchebaggery in this book really Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church put me off The ugly city that he saw from thelane when leaving Iran was the same city that made him famous before being imprisoned that is the same city he was bragging about living in like a king in the beginning of the bookI really wish that he had thought a bit about the words he chose when writing this book I mean I understand that he s angry and he wants the world to know what he s been through but this is not the way It hurts to give a memoir a bad review and even so a memoir of captivity So let me A (kinda) Country Christmas preface this review by saying that I have nothing but respect for Rezaian and all he endured I am sure it was even difficult and complicated than he detailed in this book and anything negative I write here is directed toward the book and how heortrays himself and events in it not him on a ersonal level or his lived experiencesI told Jeremy early on that this book was really good Then today I told him I finished it and that I didn t like almost hated it What changed Well it s simple I got to know the author You see this memoir is one of those books where you find yourself not really wanting to spend time with the author s overt resence But guess what this author s overt resence is on every age because a it s a memoir of b his time in National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 prison There is no escape to be had and he is insufferableLet me be specific in this book he comes off as culturally insensitive at bestracist at worst He is misogynistic He isetty He is mean And he takes every opportunity to be sarcastic or to show contempt You know it s getting bad when you start noticing these things and then say to yourself well but he IS unjustly imprisoned in Iran and then you reply to yourself but stillSo yes but still Here is an example of cultural insensitivity that made me gasp out loudDue to a difference in the number of days between the Islamic lunar calendar and the accurate one that the rest of the world the world that has long understood and accepted that the Earth revolves around the sun uses My dude I don t even know what to say to thisHere are some examples of him never missing a chance to Disparage A Woman In a woman in roomWhen he meets his wife and her friendssisters It wasn t long before the door opened and a bunch of branded shopping bags entered the suite accompanied by three young Iranian women two with fair complexions and lacking any kind of discernable energy and one whose skin seemed to glow from being in the desert sun s rays Why the mention of skin color here Why complain about a woman s lack of ertness in his resence Why the shopping bagsWhen he meets the Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism prosecuting attorney The other attorney had been replaced by a young wiry and uppity mustached female in a black chadorShe kept going livid suawking like some kind of rabid bird He haslenty of bad things to say about the male attorneys too but none of them are uppity and they never suawk And the mustacheI justwhy This woman excuse me FEMALE is doing her lawyer stuff the best that she can and she s doing it in a CHADOR Maybe she couldn t be bothered to wax her upper lip before Showing Up In CourtHe Makes up in courtHe makes of the way his Iranian guards speak and Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory pronounce English This hurt my heart I have read books where such teasing is done in a funny endearing way that adds color to Interest stories andolitical analysis He had even served as a guide for Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown Initially Rezaian thought the whole thing was a terrible misunderstanding but soon realized that it was much dire as it became an eighteen month Charming the Firefighter prison stint with impossibly high diplomatic stakes While inrison Rezaian had tireless advocates working on his behalf His brother lobbied olitical heavyweights including John Kerry and Barack Obama and started a social media campaign #FreeJason while Jason’s wife navigated the red tape of the Iranian security apparatus all while the courts used Rezaian as a bargaining chip in negotiations for the Iran nu.
