Item description for The Fortune Catcher by Susanne Pari...

Like Jean P. Sassoon's Princess, this emotionally charged debut novel offers a penetrating look behind the curtain of secrecy that shrouds modern Iran, exploring the dreams of the women there and telling the dramatic story of an American-Iranian woman whose once-perfect life and love fall victim to the battle between old and new ways.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Fortune Catcher?

Hard to put down  Dec 24, 2005
I love this book, I hope she has others that explore that culture. I also wish she'd kept all chapters in third person.
I LOVE THIS BOOK  Aug 27, 2002
I loved reading this book! It's intelligent, action-packed, and enlarged my horizons. I learned so much about what life is really like for women living in the Middle East from this book. A great and suspenseful love story, which kept me on the edge of my seat. Edgework Books released a new edition in 2002, so it is easily available for readers. I recommend this book for anyone who likes to read intelligent fiction set in exotic lands.
A great fiction novel and well written!!  Aug 4, 2002
Although this book is technically fiction, it has many factual elements within it. Not only is it a fast paced love story, drama/thriller filled book that keeps the reader's attention, but it also incorporates integral facts about the Iranian culture as a whole while giving it's reader's cultural understanding through it's well thought out characters. I am an avid reader this is a good one!
The book that made me travel in time  Aug 29, 2001
I opened Suzanne Pari's novel "The Fortune Catcher" and immidiately found myself back in Iran. Smells and noises, colors, the trembling hot air on my cheeks, a bubbling samovar, the beauty of the saffron mountains, they all appeared in front of me, surrounding me with the one and only atmosphere, the "ab-o-hava" of Iran. Ms. Pari created wonderful characters, such as that of Maman Bozorg, a cunning and manipulative family matriarch, who in her urge to control her loved-ones will not stop at anything. The book is beautifully written, so we forgive certain discrepancies, deftly concealed by the voil of the author's imagination and her profound knowledge of the country and its people. The touching story of Layla and Dariush follows in footsteps of traditional Persian literature with its romantic love poems and epics.
Truly one of the best I have read  Feb 6, 2001
I came across this book quite by accident and I am glad that I did! I was fortunate to meet Ms. Pari herself when she introduced me to her book back when it was first published. I worked in a bookstore when I came across The Fortune Catcher. Ms Pari had come in to offer to sign the copies of her book.

Up until that moment I had not known about her book and when she left after signing her books, I curiously opened the front flap of the book and proceeded to read what the story was about. As a Persian-American, I quickly became excited about this book being a novel about a Persian couple.

I took it home that night and read it all the way through. To this day, I always go back and read my favorite parts and read the book all over again. She truly has captivated her readers with her writing. You feel Layla's pain. You feel Maman Bozorg's hate. You feel Amir Hakim's lust. Truly one of the best that I have read....

Eagerly awaiting the next novel.... =)
