Persepolis

persepolis

I read another graphic, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. It was decent to read, but seemed a little rushed. The graphics were nothing special, but I kind of liked that aspect of it. Simple story of her life depicted in a simple way, I guess. Anyway, after having read The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, I feel like other literature about Iran doesn’t impress me too much. Those books were AMAZING to me, so this was only mediocre. But I did like her perspective about religion and I liked seeing how her opinion changed as she got older and better understood the state of her country. I also really liked the ending. It wasn’t happy, because she wasn’t happy. I think it made everything come to a nice close when she turned and saw how unhappy her parents were with the current situation. It was a better depiction of her having to grow up and mature than reading a hundred more pages about her growing up in Vienna.
