Read If You Could Be Mine

If You Could Be Mine Review õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Be a crime but to be a man trapped in a woman’s body is seen as nature’s mistake and sex reassignment is legal and accessible As a man Sahar could be the one to marry Nasrin Sahar will never be able to love the one she wants in the body she wants to be loved in without risking her life Is saving her love worth sacrificing her true self Find this and other Reviews at In Tori Lex Actual Rating 35 StarsThe subject matter of this book gave great insight into how homosexuality is treated in Iran Being hung imprisoned or beaten by the police are horrible conseuences for expressing your love of the same sex Sahar and Nasrin were opposite in many ways but somehow found a way to fit together Their lesbian relationship is compromised and further complicated when Nasrin gets engaged Sahar seriously considers sex reassignment surgery so that she can one day marry Nasrin that came off as strange and naive to me As careful as Sahar tries to be about being found out as a lesbian I couldn t see her even considering such a drastic decision Smile and don t worry so much See the swinging bodies in the suare Smile and don t worry so much Can t be with the person that you love because it s against the law Smile damn it The characters were realistic but the naivete of Sahar and Nasrin frustrated me alot while reading Alix Sahar s older cousin and Parveen were refreshing personality s who did balance some of that frustration out Nasrin was my least favorite character because her selfishness and vanity was brushed off too many times by the people around her Sahar grows up in this book and becomes like able because of it The novel is illuminating because it gives you insight into a different culture and place I ve learned and thought about how difficult becoming and living as a transsexual is That s what kept me reading and what I enjoyed the most

If You Could Be Mine Review õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Nounce that they’ve arranged for her marriage Nasrin tries to persuade Sahar that they can go on as they have been only now with new comforts provided by the decent well to do doctor Nasrin will marry But Sahar dreams of loving Nasrin exclusively and openlyThen Sahar discovers what seems like the perfect solution In Iran homosexuality may Although this book contains important representation of what it is like being gay and having an intimate relationship that is perceived as wrong and sinful in society s eyes there were a lot of things in this book that did not sit well with me Follows Sahar an Iranian teen who is in love with her childhood best friend Nasrin and their complicated and tenuous situation when Nasrin is engaged to a man I think the exploration of internalised anti gay sentiment and the experience of being gay in a place where being gay is not accepted were important The book also examines cultural values navigating cultural values that clash with what defines you as a person and the weight of sacrifices in a relationship However I felt really uncomfortable with the trans subplot view spoilerPlease please correct me if I m wrong or if I m speaking out of ignorance but Because being trans is regarded to be an illness in Iranian society Sahar out of desperation and love for Nasrin sets out to leverage society s perceptions of trans people and transition to a man so she hide her sexuality and can be with Nasrin and that was just so icky to me More so because I felt like there wasn t enough development or nuance or any depth In addition the trans characters in the book weren t developed enough so that mixed with this didn t sit well with me hide spoiler

If You Could Be Mine Review õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Seventeen year old Sahar has been in love with her best friend Nasrin since they were six They’ve shared stolen kisses and romantic promises But Iran is a dangerous place for two girls in love Sahar and Nasrin could be beaten imprisoned even executed if their relationship came to lightSo they carry on in secret until Nasrin’s parents an This was very different from anything I ve read before A very short book at only a little over 200 pages If You Could Be Mine examines not only life in Iran but life in Iran for a young girl in love with her best friend Nasrin From a very young age Sahar knew she wanted to many Nasrin and spend her whole life with her they ve been in a secret relationship for years now and being found out could mean imprisonment at the very least for these two This was my first book set in Iran and I found the culture and laws uite intimidating Even though I m not blind to what life is like in that country especially for women it was still shocking to find out the extent of it all that still exists to this day For instance a woman can get arrested sent to prison to be raped and abused all because she showed her elbow in public This part of the story held my interest completely I wish it had gone further in showing Iran though the beliefs and culture the ways of life I feel like the setting had so much untouched potential Don t get me wrong the book does give off a decent feel of its country it simply isn t explored as much as it could have been or as much as I was hoping at least The main topic in this novel revolves around what it s like to be gay in a country such as Iran the dangers and obstacles that are encountered are appalling As it s against the law to have a relationship with the same sex except if you get a sex change sex changes are common amongst young and old They re even encouraged when someone finds themselves uestioning their sexuality Sahar thinks this is what she needs to do to get Nasrin to cancel her engagement The love she has for this girl burns so intensely that it was almost unbearable at times She was willing to throw her whole life away for a girl who doesn t even seem to be on the same page Not that I blame Nasrin either with laws and her family hanging over her head She s taking the easy road the majority would take It s an incredibly difficult situation I felt sympathetic towards them both Sahar is an especially likeable character with a sometimes sarcastic always passionate personality Nasrin burns with confidence and a happy perfect life is all planned out but we come to see her facade for what it is A few side characters play a big part in this story as well and become Sahar s support group throughout I enjoyed Ali the most his god like status amongst his people is kind of awe inspiring and made me very much curious as to what he was up to I m a little disappointed that this part of the story was never really explained however other than a few assumptions made in passing Though I understand that his story was meant to stay in the background Maybe to lend a bit of an extravagant vibe while at it All in all If You Could Be Mine is a uick read that has a surprising amount of character depth an exceptionally uniue premise and a realistic ending that is greatly appreciated I do feel like the story missed the oomph factor it needed to make it truly extraordinary Even so it s one I predict I will not forget so easily An advance copy was provided by the publisher for reviewFor of my reviews visit my blog at Xpresso Reads
