Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This graphic nonfiction novel- my first graphic novel- is amazing. It was so entertaining to read that couldn't put it down until I was finished. It's incredibly moving, and I learned so much about Iran from the perspective of young Iranian girl from the Shah, to the Islamic Revolution in 1979, to the Iran-Iraq war. Part I of story covers her life from 1979-1984, from about when she was 9 to 14 years old.
I'm really annoyed at myself for not getting The Complete Persepolis because now I have to wait to check out Part II.
