When I started reading Persepolis, I could not stop. It felt like I was watching a movie, the book came to life. I enjoyed it. The ending of the book left me with many questions. What later happened to Satrapi? What happened to her mother? Did she die? Did she pass out from being overwhelmed? Was she sick? I will be reading the continuation the Persepolis very soon.
This book would be great to use during the study of the Iranian and Iraqi War. It could also be used to assist students with writing their own autobiography. I now believe graphic novels are a great way to help readers comprehend stories that are usually written in a traditional format. It is great for visual learners. I probably would recommend it for grades 8 and up based upon the strong language used toward the end of the book.
