The Stationery Shop is easily one of the prettiest books have ever read, but has taken me by surprise with its poignant human drama. In an exotic setting set against the dramatic upheaval of 1953, find out how ordinary people react to events that change their history and the future of two young lovers who enter a stationery shop together and fall in love. “The Stationery Shop” is a sweeping historical account, brilliantly interweaved with the story of two people growing up in Persia in the modern era. Although written in simple, accessible language, this novel takes on many meanings and aspirations for the modern reader who wants to know what history was doing at that time, what is going on today, and what will happen in the future. “The Stationery Shop” feels very important to the modern reader because it is written in someone’s shoes, as if the author had been there themselves.
How Stationery Shop Made Me A Better Salesperson
Ali Baba and Ruth Hefting are stationery shop clerks who grow up during the time of the Islamic Revolution and the establishment of the Islamic republic. When the Shah is reclusive and the new government does not interfere with their personal lives, they are both attending college in Shiraz, a well-decorated city which is full of rich history and cafes where they enjoy the company of other students. But things are not as easy to cope with when they find themselves caught between the government and the masses in their small, private stationery shop. Their friendship and romance with Moustache Robiche are threatened by the radical students who want to burn down the shop, so they concoct a plan for its destruction using a highly inflammable substance. But their plan goes wrong when a bomb planted by the revolutionary students explodes during a demonstration, leaving both boys horribly burnt and their friendship broken.
Ali Baba and Moustache Robiche are two idealistic teenagers living in Iran who barely survive the Islamic revolution and barely escape death thanks to a chance meeting with the beautiful Shahnameh. The two friends form an unlikely but romantic relationship and then find themselves fighting for their freedom against the remnants of the old regime. The story includes many historical events that occur around the world during the 20th century that have an effect on future generations. This novel is therefore extremely recommended to readers interested in a good read, especially one dealing with the current political and social issues that are so relevant to our times.
