Share your comments on: Persepolis 2

Review for :

Persepolis 2
Marjane Satrapiís story continues in this sequel to her graphic novel/memoir Persepolis. Using the same minimal black and white art style as the first book, she first tells of her new life as an Iranian expatriate in Vienna. Facing the trials of adolescence far from family and friends proves difficult: after four years she manages to graduate, but is homesick and returns to Iran. Re-adjusting to life at home is nearly as difficult as life abroad had been. She finds friends and begins a new life, but by the end of the narrative she has again decided she must leave Iran. Like the first book, Persepolis 2 is an honest depiction of the struggles of growing up, full of rich observations about society. Since there is no introduction or summary of past events, it would be best to read Persepolis first.
