Chicken With Plums is a story about Satrapi's great-uncle, Nasser Ali Khan. Nasser Ali Khan is a musician who decides to die after his beloved tar is broken by his wife. His marriage is pretty much a disaster, and as the novel progresses, we find out exactly why this is so - and it just so happens to be the same reason for why Nasser Ali Khan is so very upset o ...more
This is how the title makes you feel but believe me its far from it. Marjane Satrapi and her beautiful picture books can make even the most grim subjects a bag of laughter. She brings in the amazing human ability to laugh and live life even in the most hopeless situations.
This book is the testimony to it - as Marjane narrates 8 days before death of Naseer Ali Khan, his broken tar and heart. He lay there waiting for dea ...more

Desde el principio se revela cómo será el desenlace de la novela, sin embargo no es hasta el final que Sarapi nos da sorpresas que nos dejan un hoyo en el corazón.
This could have been a digress chapter in Persepolis as it concerns one of Satrapi's relatives in Iran in the 50s and continues her exploration of society and culture in 20th century Iran.
Its a short book at only 80 pages, but it tells a complete story abou ...more
The explanation Satrapi offers us is that he lived for his music. When his beautiful instrument was broken by his wife in a moment of rage, he never imagined his talent would abandon ...more
The story ostensibly covers eight days in the life of Satrapi's great-uncle and renowned tar player, Nassar Ali, but the use of flashbacks provide insights into the family and personal histo ...more
I enjoyed the story, it was interesting to read and surprising at the end (I didn't suspect the woman on the street to be the one girl the musician was in love with before). Also I like the realism of the characters, they are not stereotypically portrayed or forced into a typical story with a hero, antagonistic character, good vs bad, etc. It was a good plot to first introduce the character and his end, so readers were made curious on how the musician came to his end in ...more
Berättelsen om Marjanes mammas farbror Nasser Ali, som en dag beslutar sig för att död och sedan ligger åtta dagar och väntar på dödsängeln, blandar det biografiska med myt och folktro på ett sätt som verkligen tilltalar mig. Den narra ...more
This book is less sweeping than Persepolis but no less personal or touching. It's about Marjane's great uncle, Nasser Ali, and the events that lead up to his death. Satrapi's illustrations are e ...more
Marjane Satrapi's skills as a storyteller are amazing. There is humor throughout her books, as they tell the state of affairs. None of her books are light in matter though. While they are meant to be enjoyed, there are usually very important messages and social or political themes in them. Her Persepolis books - The Story of a Childho ...more
brpun dibilang buku ini isinya kisah org stres, g teteup kekeuh mo baca! in the end yg g temukan dari buku ini adalah kisah 'keteguhan' hati sang paman, Mr. Nasser Ali sepanjang hidup... demi cinta dan musik.
hidup seperti dlm penggambaran satrapi lainnya adalah perjuangan,
bagaimana menjadi seorang yg jujur dan berani.. suatu hal yg dipaksakan pada akhirnya tidak akan berbuah manis. Prasangka pun tidak akan melahirkan apa-apa selain sakit.
Satrapi grew up in Tehran in a family which was involved with communist and socialist movements in Iran prior to the Iranian Revolution. She a ...more
