This is my last post for the GINS so I would just like to end it with my thoughts on the book Prisoner of Tehran. I think that this book is a great candidate for the GINS because it really goes into detail about what is going on and how she feels. The topic is right what this is all about a global issue. Many people are unfortunate and are being held as political prisoners and live in the same conditions that Maria lived in or worst. So it sheds light on to the issue that needs to be addressed to.
As it good for the character development. I say this book is one of the best. This is because blog post four say that you need to re-write the book in the perspective of a niche character. I think that Ali is the best person for this because you really get to see why he does everything thing to Maria. It’s just I think that his heart is in the right place but he doesn’t know how to do it.
As for Maira not only you get to see how she survived Evin but you will also see her pasted. You get to read how she ended in Evin. While reading this book I suggest that you will need to take some break when reading because of it's really rough and you have sympathy got Maria. I guess I felt happy when she was happy and when she felt sad I felt it too. That is also important because if you can’t sympathize with the book you won’t be getting as much as from this project.
If you are wanting to read this book go for it. It is more of a slower pace book but it is worth the wait. You will know more about the details of what happened in the book for better or for worse. Which makes it powerfully written. Each world made me feel like I knew Maria better. You will not be able to put it down until the very end.
If you are looking for a book for something similar to this like I would suggest Bud Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis. This book is a short and easy read and does the job. The writing and the story is well told by the author and it tackles some of the harder topics like racism and poverty in the great depression.
This concludes my GINS project thanks for stay with me with this. Overall read this if you are doing GINS. If not it’s just a good read in general. If you are looking for something similar that is an easier read Bud Not Buddy is a really good book to go.
