Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return by Marjane Satrapi
6/10/2007-6/11/2007–187 pages–non-fiction (memoir, graphic novel, Austria, Iran, Iran-Iraq War)
Borrowed from WCDPL
While it’s no fault of her’s, Satrapi’s life in Europe and after the Iran-Iraq War didn’t interest me as much as during her life while living through the war. Her style and drawings are still just as captivating as before, but the content was different. Maybe the first book was just new to me, and this book just represented a pretty normal girl.
I’m surprised how lightly marriage and divorce were taken. A bit of a culture shock through reading 🙂
