Persepolis Volume 2 by Marjane Satrapi

* Picture from Amazon *

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Memoir, Graphic Novel

Rating: 7 out of 10

Plot: This book is the second volume of the author’s Persepolis series.  This book focuses on her time studying abroad in Austria and her return to Iran and subsequent attempt to adjust to life in early 1990s Iran.

Opinion: I found this to be an interesting book and a quick read.  My biggest complaint about this book is that I found the author annoying at parts, particularly in the places when she was complaining about her life, and the whole period right up to her return to Iran.  Overall, I think that if you’ve read the first volume, you should definitely pick up this volume.  If you haven’t read the first volume, look for a bind-up of the two volumes because it’s cheaper to buy it that way, and it’s such a quick read you can read straight through the whole thing.

Next book: The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
