Marjane Satrapi ß 0 Read

Out a place for herself among a group of fellow outsiders she continues to struggle for a sense of belongingFinding that she misses her home than she can stand Marjane returns to Iran after graduation Her difficult homecoming forces her to confront the changes both she and her country have undergone in her absence and her shame at what she perceives as her failure in Austria Marjane allows her past to weigh heavily on her until she finds some like minded friends falls. Persepolis the First was touching Persepolis the Second was not The teen aged Marjane is sent to Vienna where she is bounced from place to place by both circumstance and her own big mouth Marjane abandoned and isolated turns to drugs and uestionable friends and lovers to get through this time Though she is apparently bright she barely gets through school After she catches her boyfriend cheating on her she spends three months on the street and then returns to Iran Once in Iran it really gets jolly and fun Marjane is depressed She attempts suicide There are some ups but a lot of downs I won’t list them all and spoil it for everyone else but REALLYAll of this bad sad and terrible stuff is going on and I didn’t feel anything Nothing Maybe it’s because a lot of the sadness was caused by her own actions It should be noted that I generally have a low tolerance for stupid teenagers Maybe it’s because it was told in a detached way Maybe it’s because I’m heartless In any case it didn’t feel personal It didn’t feel as though the events in the book happened to the author I didn’t relate to Marjane and I didn’t sympathize with her Also the graphic element in this book didn’t really add anything for me I don’t know This book just left me coldA couple things did work for me though Marjane turns to reading at lonely times in her life and remarks that “one must educate oneself” True True One other item rang true to me when Marjane gets to Austria one of her first purchases was scented laundry detergent It wasn’t available in war torn Iran She mentions that even today she keeps a dozen or so boxes of scented detergent in her houseI wish there had been a few of those personal moments in the book

In 1984 Marjane flees fundamentalism and the war with Ira to begin a new life in Vienna This review contains spoilersIt’s been so long since I’ve had that feeling of wanting to read a story long into the night but Persepolis brought it backI felt this indescribable pull from the very first page and I just knew that this book was going to hold a special place in my heart Persepolis feel so personally important to me that I’m stunned they didn’t appear into my life until these past few daysEverything featured within; leaving moving coming of age family relationships motherly love— was just captured so personally well I really really missed Marji’s family especially her mother at the start of this volume I kept hoping for her to talk about or with her motherBut the conversations she had with Julie were also pretty interesting to read about This book had surprisingly many laugh out loud moments when Marji started out in Vienna And the beauty of this story for me was that one moment you’ll be laughing and the next your laughter will turn to tearsFor instance when she finally got the message that her mother was coming to visit Watching Marjane grow and accumulate on her own was honestly both heartbreaking and heartwarming I’m in tearsagainThe time she spent with her mother made me feel that closer to both of them The love they hold for each other punctured me deeply And it made her departure that painful From there we follow Marji’s journey living and working on her own And we get introduced to great and not so great Markus characters along the way Svetlana was a great surpriseBut Markus seriously how insensitive can one person be I was so angry when he had the nerve to say “it’s not what you think” And everything that went on afterwards left me speechless from sleeping on the streets of cold wintery Vienna to returning to Iran and still feeling helpless to not knowing how to share everything that went on during the 4 years she spent away from her family and then the road to recoveryShe went through so much in the span of four years and it made me that upset when people took advantage of her situationBut Marjane allows her past to weigh heavily on her until she finds some like minded friends falls in love and begins studying art at a universityAt her university Marji said the following that’s been on my mind ever since I loved this volume both because I saw Marji coming of age and also because Persepolis' depiction of the struggles of growing up was raw honest and incredibly illuminating This book opened up my eyes and gave me a new perspective and I am now forever grateful And then all too soon the storyline came to an end and I was left with eyes full of tears both happy and sad It was brilliant poignant memorable and just utterly fascinating Note I'm an Affiliate If you're interested in buying Persepolis 2 just click on the image below to go through my link I'll make a small commission This review and can be found on my blog
