The Complete Persepolis

by Marjane Satrapi


A graphic novel that tells the story of a young girl's childhood and young adulthood growing up in Iran during its Islamic Revolution. This is the first graphic novel I have ever read and at first I was a bit skeptical. However, I quickly became interested in it and read it much faster than the rest of the class. The illustrations are great and really add to the tone and emotion of the storyline.

Excellent portrayal of a life Westerners wouldn't usually get access to, as well as a great history lesson about Iran. Quirky, interesting smart and funny.

A unique perspective and insight into a world so foreign to Western readers. Marvelously written and paced. A joy to read for both the young and old.
