The most wonderful book I have ever read, 25 April 2006
I read this book in Persian when I was about 12 and must have read it more than 20 times over for the past 15 years. There has not been a time when I have not laughed and cried with the Jose.
It's very touching and very diffrent to all the typical childeren's books you would get these days. It's harsh, beautiful, cold and romantic all in one.
