It's difficult to review this book when my comments are similar to what I said for Maus I. There is still a negative relationship between the son (author) and his father (Holocaust survivor). This made for some uneasy moments between the two, and still in this book I felt the son was selfish, though less so. The major difference between this and the first Maus is that this book looks back on the fathers' time in the concentration camps. There are amazing stories about how the father and his wife, Anja, were still able to communicate directly or indirectly, even though they were in different camps at Auschwitz. Their reunion after the end of WWII and freeing of the camps was amazing.

The fathers' experience, which these books are focused on, shows him to be such a survivor and quick thinker.
