A graphic novel sequal
Pursepolis 2: The Story of a Return
By: Marjane Satrapi
Genre: YA biographical graphic novel
4.5 0ut of 5
This sequel was just as good, if not better that Pursepolis 1. It was educational, entertaining and even funny. I am surprised at Satrapi’s ability to write and illustrate such tragic events and still entertain the readers with some humor. It is much needed as a relief on the very serious story she tells. I had no idea that these events were occurring in Iran and during my own lifetime. Surprisingly as well, Satrapi is close to my own age. It was a true eye opening experience. Anyone who has read and enjoyed Pursepolis 1, definitely needs to read this sequel. If you haven’t checked out either DO IT NOW.
