Persepolis

Here in one volume Marjane Satrapi's best selling internationally acclaimed graphic memoir Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued 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 Goodreads 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 mechanism were in place I d use my six star review on this graphic novel It was lovely and clear It had a strong emotional impact without being sugary or uncomfortable It was eye opening without being preachy or didactic I read the whole thing in less than three hours and I can honestly say I am better for the experience

REVIEW Persepolis

By political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming both sweet and terrible; and finally of her self imposed exile from her beloved homeland It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar a young life entwined w Full review 45 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 VisaFavorite uote from the whole collection As time passed I grew increasingly aware of the contrast between the official representation of my country and people s real lives what happened behind doors approximate translation by me I don t own the English version to check because we re at the core of what makes The Complete Persepolis so interesting and I ll say it indispensable For me the strength of Marjane Satrapi s graphic novel relies on the insight it offers the reader where classic nonfiction books can easily end up as mere juxtapositions of historical events which is often boring okay The Complete Persepolis successfully breaks the codes by combining Iran s History with Marjane Satrapi s experience I for one believe that we need this kind of insight just as much as history books because as I said in my review of Rooftops of Tehran it s way too easy to dehumanize people we know nothing about to forget the much real people living in the countries that our leaders target This is what I mean when I say that there s nothing political any in strongly disagreeing with Trump s decisions especially when it comes to Muslims At this point it s not about agreeing on reducing taxes for the rich in order to avoid flight of capital it s about acknowledging that everything in Western culture participates in feeding our prejudices Really it s about acknowledging that these prejudices are real and that it s an everyday conscious work to fight against them What fighting prejudices does not mean It doesn t mean agreeing with everything It doesn t mean oh my god erasing western culture and that concept loved and spread by so many of far right voters is so fucking ridiculous given the fact that we have controlled the narrative for so long it s not even funny The great replacement so dearly loved by FN voters is merely another way for them to express their islamophobia and show their lack of basic education Forget me with this shit I m using western culture as a generalization here I don t believe that all western countries share the same culture far from it What fighting prejudices means it means accepting that different experiences are just as much valid It means educating yourself reading about and from people from different cultures It means rejecting any attempt of categorizing cultures as being good or evil as a whole It means a lot of listening and maybe less talking Trust me I very much include myself when I say that we have to educate ourselves The truth is I have a shit tons of biases I m desperately secular hopelessly Cartesian and very much on the Left spectrum I ve beneficed from my white privilege my whole life I m a straight abled woman from Europe I will never understand religion I am interested in religions but it s not the same thing and it never will As far as I m concerned though people can believe what they want as long as they don t try to convince me that I should believe and live my life according to thus beliefs And just to be clear right now the intolerant people who are being vocals about condemning abortion or LGBTIA rights in my country are very much Christians Nobody asks you to change what you are but to accept that others aren t the sameAm I going to screw up and fail to notice hurtful contents in the books I read Probably unfortunately Yet I think that in the end what baffles me and makes me so sad and so angry is the fact that so many people genuinely do not want to listen learn and do better Everything starts with education and I m not saying this because I m a teacher Nobody should ever forget that we know one thing that we know nothing For of my reviews please visit

    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
