Recommended for: absolutely everyone

This book depressed me more than the original but it's totally worth reading. I am amazed by how Art Spiegelman tells this story. Really, the pictures, the comic relief, the honestly, the raw and painful truth, I just can't believe it all comes through in this graphic novel. It's impossible not to be brought to tears. My own family went through this kind of experience (my grandfather was sent to Auschwitz and also survived) and even though I'm always such an emotional mess when I read stuff like this, I think we need to keep telling these stories and we need to read them so that we don't forget about this kind of stuff. It should never be repeated.
