Persepolis 1: Historia dzieciństwa A New York Times Notable BookA Time Magazine Best Comix of the Year A San Francisco Chronicle and Los Angeles Times Best sellerWise, funny, and heartbreaking, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi s memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution In powerful black and white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah s regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great granddaughter of one of Iran s last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country Persepolis paints an unforgettable

revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love Persepolis is a widely acclaimed memoir graphic novel, it was rated highly by several of my fellow readers and therefore I ve

memoir graphic novel, it was rated highly by several of my fellow readers and therefore I ve had my eye on it for a while Sadly, now, after reading this book, I am a little underwhelmed by it.As a graphic novel, it is a notable work The cartoonish style of the drawing is superb, the subject matter is very current, the combination of tragedy and humor is clever However, as a political memoir, Persepolis lacks I don t know exactly why, but I never got a grip on what Satrapi s personal views on the politics within her country are In fact, I am not even sure if she really knows what what was happening in her country Maybe it has something to do with the fact that this memoir ends when the author is 14 although writing it as an adult, she should be able to present her views clearly Or maybe it is because Satrapi herself never personally experiences any hardship in this book I find it very interesting that in times of turmoil, during the civil war for democracy, during the rise of religious fundamentalism, during the war with Iraq, Satrapi s family never seems to experience any discomfort Quite the opposite, when people die and suffer, the writer s most hardship is to hide the liquor at a party which they are not supposed to have , or to wear a headscarf, or to get an Iron Maiden poster through customs This narration from a perspective of a person in power is a little disheartening and has a bit of a fake tone to it, as if the author doesn t know what is really happening in her country and writes about from her million dollar mansion while being served by one of her maids.It s not a bad book, especially for younger readers who want to know a little bit about Iran and its current political events It is presented in a very appealing, easy format But for me personally this book appears to be too superficial to leave any kind of lasting impression I will however read the second part of the memoir Maybe it will have someinsight.Reading challenge 5 1 of 2 I knew a little about Iran Not much, but a little I knew it had been through a lot of changes, and that most of those changes had been steps backward when it came to personal freedom.Here s a cool little 1 minute video that gives you a visual look at some of the changes in style, if you re interested.Alright What I didn t know was the hows and whys And to be honest, it never occurred to me to delve much deeper There was a revolution, some religious nutters took over, and then everyone start I knew a little about Iran Not much, but a little I knew it had been through a lot of changes, and

started dressing like they were back in the stone ages.People in my country choose to wear burkas, so I just assumed most of the people in Iran thought it was a good thing Now, maybe my original views sound sort of stupid, but in my defense, I honestly don t understand why anyone does anything when it comes to religion So covering yourself head to toe doesn t sounds any weirder than not using birth control, avoiding certain foods, or refusing medical treatment And don t get me started on that My Husband is the Head of the House shitMy point is, if people willing do those things because of religious beliefs, why not clothing stuff Hello Amish, muchBut really this story is about muchthan just clothes It s about the slow and methodical war waged on freedom of any kind in Iran, and it s told through the eyes of a woman who lived through it as a child Since she comes from a wealthy and educated household, you get a different perspective than maybe you would otherwise Her parents are actively protesting the changes, while also trying to maintain a sense of normalcy in their home Growing up in a home like that made an impression on her, and you can see how she bucks and rebels as she approaches her teenage years She wasn t raised to be quiet and docile, so she chafes under her country s regime My son and I read this one right around the same time, and he thought it was an incredibly enlightening story, as well.Actually, he said something like this Hey, that was pretty cool I didn t know any of that stuff happened in Iran High praise from the teenager Anyway, I m looking forward to reading the second part of this story, becauseThat Ending Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi s memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution It was an eye opening,

Marji and her mother, also hit home for me.There was one instance in particular that stayed with me when her mother was willing to sew posters into her own coat just to bring them back to her daughter without marks It actually hurt when she thanked her father first And the feelings of fear and terror and bravery Marji felt during the war were captured in such an honest way that I couldn t help but feel them with her The incredibly supportive women and men in Marji s life were inspiring They all held a significant part in her journey, and it just made me tear up towards the end, especially when Marji left for Vienna I just I keep looking at that last frame and tearing up All in all, this graphic novel was a complete game changer for me, and I seriously cannot believe it took me so long to

when the Shah fled Iran in 1979 to escape There are thousands of reviewsBut I do have two things to share One is a personal experience The other is a detail in this book I was curious about that sent me to google I was in Iran in 1974 the good days my local Iranian friends tell me I actually ran into some trouble not an all out revolution , but it didn t feel good at the time in Tehran, a couple of trouble incidents but I often think about how lucky I was that I missed a bloody nightmare by 5 years When I returned home and saw Midnight Express I cant tell you how physically sick the movie made me I was in a close call situation in Iran, that could have landed me in one of those prisons just by being with a guy who had drugs in his pocket while crossing borders while being searched He quickly popped them in his mouth and swallowed them all Being with him for the next 24 hours was another story The other thing that interested me in this book BESIDES.the authors outstanding book
