      SPOILER ALERT Farah Pahlavi, former known as the Empress of Iran, and widow of the last Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, intended for her book, An Enduring Love My Life with the Shah, to be a memoir The piece delivered on that promise and provided details I had not read in other documents pertaining to Iran s history This was not just the story of Farah Pahlavi ne Diba , it was a deep dive into the complex dynamics that led to the overthrow of the Shah, the manipulation of Iranian citizens, [...]

      Farah Diba Pahlavi, the shahbanou of Iran, wrote down her life in Iran, her marriage to the shah and their ouster as a family after the Islamic revolution It is a gripping story and despite some aspects perhaps being glossed over she has chronicled the demise of Iran at the hands of Islamic fundamentalists There is one thing that I have taken from this memoir and that is that the queen has unrelenting love for her country, culture, people and history.

    4. Shirin Afrasiabi on said:

      I am so greatful for reading this book It gave me a fresh and great perspective of the Iran I thought I knew It changed my understanding of the Pahlavi Dynasti I now regret believing all the garbage they made up about these people All I can say to this person is THANK YOU for your services to our country, and SORRY this country betrayed you.

    5. Sincerae on said:

      I would not say that An Enduring Love is written with as flowery and beautiful language as Daughter of Persia that I read some years ago, but I do like Farah Pahlavi s effort and her life story.The Iranian hostage crisis and the question of what would become of the extremely ill Shah of Iran, the author s husband, and his family was all over the news when I was seventeen years old and finishing up high school It was the first political crisis I really paid any attention to, and the first Middle [...]

      Its an interesting personal account of a person whose life had been full of controversy and considered to have a part in failed policies of Shah s regime Apart from politics, its touching how she defends her deceased husband and his policies though they are blamed of corruption and evil use of power against adversaries even demonstrators And its a fascinating narration of Iranian way of life, culture and valuesy be affluent class only I would love to read about post revolution conditions that l [...]

    7. Ayeshazainal on said:

      The Arabic version of the book is well translated, which allowed me to enjoy reading the book and the empress s account of her life.The book is well written, and gives you insight on Iran since beginning of last century until the Islamic Revolution, for a change, reading her side of the story on Iran pre revolution, and all projects and efforts the Shah and herself made to the development and growth of Iran, and her narrative of the years before the revolution can give the reader insight on the [...]

      I have no doubts that some incidents are glossed over, downplayed if you prefer, there isn t a country in history or it s rulers that are perfect and without question I do believe that the Pahlavi s worked hard and with much effort to bring Iran out of the so called dark ages and into modernity and wholly wanted a self sufficient and academically challenging country.It s sad, depressing, and demoralizing that a few, many, fanatics can bring a country to it s knees and destruct the good in the na [...]

      I have read Leap of Faith by Queen Noor of Jordan and this book looks strikingly similar So far, so good Stay tuned for my final opinion when I finish May be my last book for fun that I ll be able to read this year ____________________________I thought Queen Farrah Diba had her own story to tell and told it well It was quite interesting to read about how Iran was becoming modernized and then all of a sudden does a 360 and started to become what it is today Given current events and that Americans [...]

      A Dutch king once wrote to his son and heir No one is born to the throne without paying the toll Farah s story offers a touching glimpse at the human face behind the powerful monarch of post war Iran, whose ambitious modernisation evolved faster than his people s mind could The only reproach the reader can lay at her feet at present is an underestimation of the popular mood s turn for the dark, the consequences of growth that benefitted the population unevenly Nevertheless, her love for Iran s b [...]
