A graphic novel about the author’s childhood in Iran during its war with Iraq and the Revolution that forced women under cover. The author felt true to a youngster, who is headstrong but somewhat stupid and doesn’t understand her own lack of wisdom yet. She’s just a year younger than me so I tried to imagine myself in her shoes and it made me quite sad. We are so fortunate for our freedoms and should never take them for granted. ( )

My daughter was given this book, and I decided to read it too. It was neat to learn about some of the history and culture of Iran that I was ignorant of. I didn't love the illustrations, though I understand it's a style and that she's an artist. ( )

My first foray into graphic novels and I was very impressed with it. Satrapi knows how to tell a story, especially with minimal words. Her illustrations are fantastic - simple, emotional, just perfection. I truly didn't have a lot of background on the Cultural Revolution in Iran, and still have some questions, but I didn't expect this book t be a history lesson. It was Satrapi's story about being a young girl during this time period in Iran and she portrays all of the humor, violence, sadness, joy, anger and confusion that she must have experienced. I ran through this in a few days and just loved everything about it. ( )

“Persepolis” is a comic written and illustrated by Marjane Satrapi. It follows a one or two year period of Satrapi’s life at the beginning of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. It was first published in 2000 and has gone on to sell over a million copies in many European languages (though not in Farsi, the language of Iran).

“Persepolis” is a good piece of literature; however, it is more like an illustrated book than a comic. There is a small narration followed by a picture that demonstrates the small narration. This technique is somewhat outdated. Being Satrapi’s first comic, I would not expect “Persepolis” to have the artistic richness that combines words and images to create a verbal and visual masterpiece. Librarians who don’t follow the medium absolutely love this style, though. It is easier for the non-comics fan to digest and the Spartan pictures are appealing because they are “adult.” There is no need to contemplate the art. There are no difficult visual cues or graphic themes. It’s just a simple narration with pictures.

“Persepolis” is self-indulgent at times, as are all autobiographies. The protagonist enjoys discussing her rebellious ways as she tries to figure out the Iranian Revolution. While you would think that a ten-year-old would be naïve and pitiable, Satrapi is able to discuss revolutionary theory with the best of them. Her ironic demeanor outsmarts her parents and teachers. Perhaps this is not an unrealistic character trait. Perhaps it is a national flaw: at a time when Iran was delirious, the child remained sane.

“Persepolis” is a librarian’s dream. It is a quick, easy read comic that provides a look at one family’s view of the Iranian Revolution. While it might not be the comic critic’s most beloved format, it is certainly important because the style reaches a wide audience. ( )

If you want to understand more about Iran in the 70s and 80s, read this book. ( )
