The positive: I really enjoyed when this GN was a meditation on how the person we are now relates to the people we used to be. Best part of the book.

The summary: It's unfair, but I couldn't stop comparing it to Persepolis, and it lost that comparison. Much of her life felt like it was skimmed over or lightly treated, in favor of looking more at her own conflict about her development (this isn't bad, but did lessen my enjoyment).

The negative: Good, not great. I'd recommend Persepolis over this one, but had I read this one first I would have enjoyed it more.
