    One thought on “A Hundred Veils”

    1. As an Iranian, I was attracted to this book by the beautiful picture of our Mount Damavand on the cover and by the title, a phrase from a famous poem of Rumi. This is a novel about a young American living in Iran when the anti-Shah forces were just beginning to gather strength. I now live in the States but lived in Tehran at the time when the story is set, and I find the picture of the people and culture very accurate. This is a moving story of an inter-cultural love affair, but it is also very [...]

    2. Rea Keech has written a novel that informs, inspires and delights. A Hundred Veils is a love story that takes place in 1968 Iran. The protagonist is Marco, a young American teaching English at the University of Tehran for the International Teachers Association. As Keech served with the Peace Corps in Iran at the same time, his novel necessarily draws much of its verisimilitude from his experiences there.Of all the books Peace Corps Worldwide’s editor offered me to review, I immediately chose t [...]

    3. above average romance story of a young male American teacher in Iran just prior to Iranian overthrow of Shah who falls in love with the cousin of his Iranian roommate. Explains a lot about the difference in perception of culture and society between Western and Iranian.

    4. I picked this book up as part of my effort to read more diverse books. It centers on a young American English teacher who falls in love with an Iranian girl at the University of Tehran in the 70s. It wasn’t until I’d finished reading it, and finally read the About the Author, that I discovered the author is actually local to me. And I mean VERY local. As in my county library system had an event starring him THREE DAYS PRIOR to my reading the book! So I’m a little annoyed that I missed that [...]

    5. DelightfulI absolutely misjudged this novel, but I'm glad that I did - that made the touching moments that much better. The straightforward, almost removed lens through which we look allows the writing and imagery to work for itself, without sensationalizing. I loved it.

    6. A Hundred Veils by Rea KeechThe first chapter drew me into the story. The author’s depictions of Marco’s initial impressions from the time the plane landed in the Shiraz airport to finding himself on the balcony of the Pahlavi University dormitory captured my attention immediately. This young American teacher has incredible, believable cultural experiences complete with friendship, humor, sadness and ultimately love in a country that started out to be so foreign to him. It does not take long [...]

    7. I loved this book. It was great to read about the experience of an American in Iran when the revolution was just getting started.

    8. I enjoyed reading this first novel. I had many other heavier readings to do this week and kept expecting a negative to come in this story. I read this novel with no advance info about the author or the book. I think I expected a usual Nicolas Sparks ending. When the endings were not that way I felt lighter and happier yet wondering if it was a real Iranian ending.

    9. Well worth reading. The story captured my interest and the details reminded me of what life was like back in the 70s in the Shah's Iran. The reality pictured here might be a surprise to the western reader.
