I can't say I was blown away by Marjane Satrapi's latest graphic novel, but I was entertained by it. The art is rather lovely and stylish, and the story rather intriguing, even if some of the elements were problematic (like the ugly sister and the issue of slavery being dealt with so flippantly - oh, and the awkward icky behavior of Rose's main love interest). Rose was a very strong, capable heroine whom I loved reading about. I hope Satrapi's next novel is also in his style, it really fits her prose.

Although let's be fair: will anything ever measure up to Persepolis? Well, it's true. You can't really get more powerful a story than Satrapi's own life in Iran.
