Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood & The Story of a Return - Marjane Satrapi I have a hard time with graphic novels/comics. They are just not my thing! Part I is a bit about the Islamic Revolution, but I wanted more real information. Part II is more of a coming of age story and about how it is to be an immigrant in a new country. Sure the pictures did sometimes really show the horror and/or surprise of the characters, but good writing lets each reader draw their own visual pictures. I prefer that.
