    1. I sat down to read a little of this during lunch, and ended up sitting in the restaurant for an hour after I was done eating Eventually I felt guilty and left, but my plans were shot for the afternoon, as all I could think about was finishing this book I wish there were some mechanism on to occasionally give a book than five stars Something to indicate when you think a book is than merely excellent Like for every 100 books you review, you earn the right to give one six star review If such a me [...]

    2. A masterpiece of graphic novelsThis edition as the name indicates, collects the complete run of Persepolis.Creative Team Creator, Writer Illustrator Marjane SatrapiREVOLUTIONARY WORKI remember the days when we traveled around Europe, it was enough to carry an Iranian passport They rolled out the red carpet We were rich before Now as soon as they learn our nationality, they go through everything, as though we were all terrorists They treat us as though we have the plague.Persepolis is the masterp [...]

    3. Full review 4.5 starsThings I didn t know before The Complete Persepolis was originally written in French Way to feel dumb as shit in the French bookstore, I assure you Things I know now Marjane Satrapi, as a French Iranian, can t enter the US now But hey, it s for your security , all that shit I just learned that French Iranian had been authorized to go to the US with a Visa.Favorite quote from the whole collection As time passed, I grew increasingly aware of the contrast between the official r [...]

    4. Visiting Spain for a conference earlier this month, I impulsively decided to do something about my almost non existent Spanish I began by reading the Spanish edition of Le petit prince, which got me started nicely Now I wanted to try something harder I had in fact read Persepolis in French not long after it came out, but I remembered very little of it this would be a proper test of whether I had actually learned anything I was pleased to find that I could read it I m still having to guess a lot [...]

    5. This was brilliant a graphic novel depicting the coming of age of a young Iranian girl living in Iran during the Islamic Revolution, who is eventually sent to live in Austria for 4 years for her safety It shows the horrors of living in a war torn nation, as well as how terrifying it must be to live in a country run by religious fundamentalists fanatics The Muslim leaders recruited 14 year old boys in the war effort, closed down schools, targeted intelligent people and women wearing jeans and nai [...]

    6. Hace poco le el cuento de la criada y me pareci un libro de distop a inconcebible en la actualidad Sin embargo, leer Pers polis me ha abierto much simo la mente, para una mujer occidental es f cil olvidar la realidad que se vive en los pa ses como Ir n e Iraq que est n sometidos a reg menes religiosos extremistas donde las mujeres no tienen ning n derecho Ni siquiera pueden correr en p blico, maquillarse, ense ar los tobillos o las mu ecas es que es tan surreal para mi pensar que eso pasa en el [...]

    7. Ugh I am deeply ambivalent First, I found the political side fascinating If you re interested in Iran s history, the graphic novel format is really accessible However, I really disliked Marjane I feel a little guilty about this, as she s a real person While she and her family were proud that she was outspoken, I found her rude and obnoxious They believed she was raised to be free I certainly appreciate their hugely liberal views in such a repressive environment, but their version of free felt l [...]

    8. 4.5 5My first memories of Iraq and Iran consist of mixing the names up, having nothing than the vague knowledge from television talkers that someone was fighting someone and we, the United States, were fighting everyone Persia was where my best friend in first grade was from, a place she once told me didn t exist any before she changed schools in third grade and we completely lost contact with each other The intervening years between then and now filled up with reports of war and terrorism and [...]

    9. I keep promising to write a full review for this but never get around to it Basically, I read Persepolis for my Gendered Communities course and I think it s one of those rare reads that actually gets better when you study it for the historical, cultural and political context There are depressingly few Middle Eastern women whose books are read on a large scale so the insight which Persepolis offers into this part of Iran s history is very important It offers a perspective we don t get to see too [...]

    10. One of the things I loved about this book was Marjane s very individual voice and how it transformed from the start of the book when she is 10 to the end, when she is 22 Ten year old Marjane, by the way, is about the most awesome kid I have encountered in print She reminded me of Harper Lee s Scout, except Marjane was cuter and hilarious Also, political.Most readers are unlikely to be really conversant in 20th Iranian political history and it is absolutely fascinating to be introduced to the t [...]

    11. Books such as this and The Complete Maus remind us how powerful the medium of comics is It is not all Walt Disney and Tom and Jerry, folks.

    12. Marjane Satrapi nos cuenta su historia en Persepolis , una poderosa autobiograf a que transmite diversas y profundas emociones nos introduce a un escenario ca tico y dram tico pero a n pudiendo tornar su obra depresiva y desolada, evita la victimizaci n por medio del humor y algunas veces, el sarcasmo Nos narra su perspectiva, y tambi n su ideolog a que evoluciona constante y progresivamente conforme se avanza en la lectura.La historia se divide en cuatro partes la primera nos narra sus a os ing [...]

    13. I learnt so much reading this Around the Year in 52 Books Challenge Notes 41 A book about a major world event The Islamic Revolution

    14. A question I heard a lot while I was reading this book was how does it compare with Maus and if I were to answer that question, I would say, I suppose, that I thought that Maus was compelling, with classically heroic characters, detailed, careful artwork and I mean come ON it was about the holocaust, haven t we all agreed that s the official trump card but I m not sure that it actually makes much sense to compare this book with Maus Sure, they re both graphic novels whose subject is generally [...]

    15. Graphic novel was the perfect medium for this story I am not saying I would not have enjoyed it if it had been prose, but Satrapi s words and images together drew me in right away and I flew through the story This is another important story from a region with lots of important stories to tell The theme is that we are all people even though we are often defined by our government, media, religion, etc We cannot truly know who someone is without meeting them in person It is also interesting to see [...]

    17. Special and enlightening.It was delightful to learn about Iran and the Islamic Revolution, something so far away from me, through the eyes of a character to whom I could so easily relate.

    19. Persepolis is the memoir of Marjane Satrapi, who grew up in Iran during and after the years of the Iranian Revolution in an affluent middle class family Given the setting you would expect this graphic novel to cover some seriously heavy subject matter, which it does, but it s also surprisingly humorous and sprinkled with many light hearted moments For a book that deals with such dark themes and refers to so many character deaths, there is a surprising amount of joy to be had from it I enjoyed th [...]

    20. I am afraid that I might not be able to tell anything good or great from my limited knowledge of what went wrong or what kept her going Is it the oil which once was a natural resource Is it her smoking cigarette Is it her hooded veil Is it the never ending war Is it her make up Is it her defiance Here it is, I think that it is appropriate that you hear from someone who knows Elham s review of The Complete Persepolis

    21. I think this is will be response than review Satrapi s Persepolis fulfills its purpose as a memoir, but I will tell you right from the start, that it is indeed overhyped, particularly if you have read the rave critical reviews Perhaps, since the field of graphic novels as memoirs is relatively new, a work like this could be called ground breaking Persepolis as a memoir is an interesting read I say this only as a result of having read Part Two of this book, The Story of a Return If I had read Th [...]

    22. 4.5 stars Spoilers Brilliant, this was so much than what I expected I knew I d enjoy Persepolis but I had no idea that I d find a story about a girl Marji growing up in Iran at the time of the Islamic Revolution so immersive, gripping, relatable and moving It was simple yet powerful Marji s struggles in Iran were portrayed so well, I believed everything I was reading One of the main issues I have with fact based or autobiographical novels is that I always feel things are exaggerated, hidden or [...]

    23. Life is too short to be lived badly I finished this book in one sitting I normally don t write reviews but this book is amazingly good and is worth all the hype It has a lot of humour, compassion and heartbreaks I absolutely loved Marjane as the little rebellious girl who spoke her mind, as the girl who lost her way and couldn t hold her dignity, as the girl who came back and proved herself, and also as the writer who has written this book so beautifully To have lived in such oppression then liv [...]

    24. A semi autobiographical book, this book offered such great insight into the history of Iran, particularly during the 1950s all the way through to the 80s, covering the Islamic revolution, the war with Iraq and the invasion of the West It s a story about a young girl growing up during that particular time period and it follows her journey throughout The language is simple, blunt and effective It highlighted the danger and recklessness when religion Islam, in this case is interpreted in ones own w [...]

    25. Okay, I have finally finished this magnificent book and I am really really really glad that I chose this to read It worth every single second of my time Marjane Satrapi, the author has presented her childhood to adulthood here as a graphic novel But it must not be confused with any comic or a mere book with cartoons This is something powerful, something really powerful There is a line War always takes you by surprise Yeah, true For a girl of twelve, religious rebellions are nothing but a surpris [...]
