This book remind me of Anne Frank’s diary, an innocent account on the dark side of war history, and story-line quite similar to movie/novel Forest Gump, linking the biography with historic events…

This graphic novel is full of humor and sadness in the life of narrator Marjane Satrapi. First part talk about her childhood and second part talk about her school days or latter adulthood… This graphic novel is something you feel like witnessing Iran as Marjane’s family member. Quite honest and neutral opinion about situations in Iran and facts about life… This book also talks about culture, traditions, social structure of Iran…

Graphics are in black and white, very effective and to-the-detail required. Sometime we can see very good compositions, and brilliant usage of positive negative spaces.
