I have repeatedly read positive reviews for Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis and I have repeatedly checked the two books out from the library to read them. Unfortunately, many times the due date sped towards me and I did not have the opportunity to dive into this unique memoir . . . until recently!
Satrapi shares her story with us and it becomes much more than just a graphic novel or memoir. It becomes a personalized history. It gives the reader a true peek into a country and its people, both the good and the not-so-good. It is the prime example of a book that can open our eyes to the world by a simple turn of a page.
All I can say is WOW!
Were you wow'd by Satrapi's work? What other books have that "wow" factor for you?
