really liked it
bookshelves: finished

The second book in the Persepolis series. The last time we left off Marjane was leaving Iran to live in Vienna and away from the repressive regime. However, teenage Marjane now finds herself on her own. Great follow up to the first book but definitely more bleak. My heart went out to Marjane who gets kicked out her first home, sent to live with nuns, kicked out again (after calling the nuns whores), lives with friends, finds an apartment and eventually starts living on the streets after her landlady accuses her of theft.

Its a tough story but well worth reading.

Jaderunner98 Ellen! I love this book as well! This is the book of the year for me.

message 2: by Rusalochka (new)

Rusalochka (a.k.a Zashen) "Bleak" - Yes, I think she was setting the tone so the reader could feel how her life felt during those years of her life.
