In many books what is written on the book jacket or the online description gives away what happens in the first few chapters In a Teaspoon of Earth and Sea that description makes up the entirety of its plot Not an action driven novel this is primarily a story of what it feels like to be a woman in Iran after the Revolution Though the writing is beautiful and evocative the story itself seems to drag I found the tone of the book and its main characters to be largely self pitying I might be whiney too in their circumstances but I like to have a worthy protagonist to root for when I read like I did in The Taliban Cricket Club or All Woman and Springtime I will recommend this novel to friends for its beautiful writing and sense of atmosphere but it won’t be at the top of my list
