    1. Those kinds of novels answers the question that is always asked u are a Muslim and u are afraid of Sharia law this doesn t make sense,may be ,but the problem is not in Sharia law,it is in those who define it and how their thinking is Deviated.People s opinion especially those Islamic politicians should never be reflected in the making the lawsey destroy Islam s image as a religion of peace and justice could Osama bin laden be following the same religion of Rumi in a a male dominated society ther [...]


    2. I liked you a lot, Aqa Jaan.You were there when it all began, and you trusted that everything would turn out well for all your relatives.Little did you know how much your world would change, and most of your countrymen were as clueless as you From growing political dissatisfaction to political turmoil in only ten years and from one strict ruler to another, only the head dress were different You remind me of people I met in Iran Some who thought that after all the change were for the better and m [...]





    3. I have used the word unique a few times to describe a novel, perhaps I did not know the true meaning of the word Or perhaps, it was that I had not read The House of the Mosque, nor will I ever read a book of the same calibre, style, or story, I can t imagine.At first I was sceptical, as any boy would be after being recommended a book by his father, who, frankly, has bad taste But then I had nothing to read, and this had a vibrant coverImmediately I was absolutely absorbed I was almost surprised [...]


    4. C era una volta una casa, una casa antica, che si chiamava la casa della moschea.Bellissimo ed emozionante Un romanzo indimenticabile che rester nel mio cuore Scritto dall iraniano Kader Abdolah, esule in Olanda, La casa della moschea racconta un pezzo di storia recente della Persia attraverso le vicende, ora liete liete ora drammatiche, di una grande e rispettata famiglia, custode da generazioni di un antica moschea in una cittadina della regione centrale del paese Dalla fine degli anni Sessant [...]



    5. This book is written with so much affection for the people and the land In the early chapters, it s often very funny so that when the characters lives begin to be affected by political and then revolutionary events, it s much shocking Much of it is beautifully written I picked it off the shelf in the bookshop because I liked the title and the cover There are better ways of choosing books but I couldn t be delighted that I chose this one One thing I have to mention though The dust jacket says t [...]



    6. De historische roman rondom de familie van Aga Djan, beheerder van een moskee en tapijthandelaar in de lokale bazaar speelt zich af in de roerige jaren 70 en 80 van de vorige eeuw De eerste maandlanding die eigenlijk niet op televisie bekeken mag worden, de vrijheid tot aan 1979 onder de sjah, het regime van ayatollah Khomeini en de Iraans Iraakse oorlog die daarop losbarstte Abdolah schreef het boek voor Europeanen om hen een blik achter de schermen te gunnen van de milde vorm van de Islam Tijd [...]


    7. This book begins calmly as a story about a family in a religious city in Iran Abdolah zooms in on the figure of Aga Djan, who thoughtfully manages both his larger family, the mosque and the bazar of his town and is respected by every one This specific, rather exotic world is outlined in a very sympathetic, sometimes touching way with great attention for humanly details But gradually things change modernity penetrates, as a conscious result of the policies of the Shah and his American allies the [...]


    8. Bello Pi riuscito, forse, di Scrittura cuneiforme, per trama e personaggi, tuttavia meno intenso e sentito, quasi che con l aumentare della padronanza della lingua del paese ospite l autore perdesse un poco della propria identit Del resto si invecchia e si cambia, forse anche il dolore dell esilio dopo un po si acquieta, e diventa se non tollerabile almeno gestibile.Libro pieno di belle figure, permeato della magia di una Persia immaginifica che non riesco a definire Iran, anche se ne condivide [...]

    10. I ran out of reading material while we were in Italy, and found this in a bookshop that had a collection of English books I wasn t sure what to make of it to start with it was written in a very simple language which may or may not reflect the Dutch original I don t know which reminded me of Paulo Coelho s early work e.g The Alchemist But as the story gathered pace, I found myself drawn further and further into it The book revolves around the household of Aqa Jan, respected leader of a small Iran [...]





    11. Voi resterete fino a quando tutti saranno partiti e tutti saranno arrivati I libri spesso vengono letti perch subiscono un grande lancio da parte delle case editrici o per il cosiddetto passaparola e spesso restiamo delusi, questo racconto di Kader Abdolah per niente popolare, una perla rara, la storia una di quelle che ti restano in mente per un bel po , ci racconta usi e costumi di un popolo molto lontano dal nostro, ci avvicina ad una terra, quella iraniana, troppo spesso teatro di guerre e l [...]


    12. It s Iran in the 60s and 70s Under the Shah, progressive Tehran ladies have abandoned the chador for loose headscarves which show their hair But in a small provincial town near Qom, Iran s centre of Shi a scholarship, where several generations of carpet merchant Aqa Jaan s family live together in the house of the mosque of the book s title, the march of progress is less advanced When rakish Uncle Nosrat, a photographer and film maker, visits Aqa Jaan and the others, bringing with him a trendy gi [...]


    13. Recieved this from librarything early reviewers last week and had to read it straight away.This is a beautifully written novel, about some of the most turbulent years in Iranian history The book opens in 1969 at the time of the moon landings the back cover says 1950 I assume that is an error Immediately we become introduced to the family and servants of Aqa Jaan who have lived in the house of the mosque, and been custodians of the mosque itself for 8 centuries We follow the fortunes of the vario [...]


    14. The House of the Mosque was both deeply moving and informative The many Iranians I have known have all been very secular It was very interesting reading about the changes in Iran from the perspective of a conservative family, where the woman all wore chadors, thad no television in the house and believed going to the cinema was sinful Although they were so different from my own experiences and beliefs, I ended up both really liking and sympathizing with Aga Jahn and his family The pacing was good [...]


    15. This is an amazing book The writer weaves the tale of an extended family in a remote town with the political and social events in the world beyond and how each of them is affected The revolution ursurps into the household and changes peoples minds and their thoughts, breaks up relationships between parents and children, brings out the worst within the community, challenges ancient traditions and changes the perspective of religion The meek and subservient are empowered by religious leaders, the [...]



    16. Tegen een historische achtergrond vertelt de auteur het verhaal van een familie in Iran gedurende de laatste twintig jaar van de vorige eeuw Doordat een echte protagonist ontbrak en ik weinig houvast had aan de vreemde namen, was het soms lastig te volgen over wie het nu ging, maar dat deed niets af aan de prachtige en inzichtgevende vertelling die je aan het denken zet Integendeel, ik moest hierdoor sommige passages herlezen en dat was bepaald geen straf In de sfeer van en vergelijkbaar met de [...]


    17. Ge kunt dat zo hebben h , dat ge een boek start met hoge verwachtingen, waarvan je niet eens meer weet vanwaar ze komen, maar dat dat boek dan totaal blijkt tegen te vallen Wel, dit is er zo eentje Ik begrijp het cht niet, vanwaar dat 4 sterren gemiddelde komt Ik vond dit boek zo teleurstellend, zowel qua verhaal als qua schrijfstijl Het klikte op geen enkel vlak en ik deed er dan ook 5 lange weken over om het uit te lezen, hopend dat ik het liever zou lezen naarmate het verhaal vorderde Helaas, [...]


    18. Wat een prachtboek is Het huis van de moskee van Kader Abdolah Bij deze beveel ik het een ieder aan Het boek beschrijft een familie die in het huis bij een moskee woont, ergens in Iran Het boek start in de tijd van de Shah en eindigt in het nu In een stijl die typisch is voor Abdolah, sprookjesachtig alsof het gaat om de onschuldige vertelsels van Sherazade, schetst hij het leven en de veranderingen daarin in de Iraanse maatschappij van de afgelopen 40 jaar.De kraai die de trouwe vriend is, de v [...]
