Persepolis 2

Stayed up an extra 45 minutes last night to finish reading Persepolis 2 by Marjane Satrapi. I liked it but not as much as the first one. This second graphic novel covers Satrapi's life from the age of 14 when she's essentially living alone in Austria through her return to Iran after high school and after to her marriage, divorce, and then leaving Iran again when she's 24.

This one was more difficult for me to read because the author spends a good portion of the book low and depressed. I completely understand why of course but it is hard because i'm identifying so much with the author and her situation that i start to feel low too. It is a good book though and i do recommend it. A 5.

Dewey's review (we miss you!), Alyce's, Bluestocking's, Alessandra's, and Ex Libris'.
