In love and begins studying art at a university However the repression and state sanctioned chauvinism eventually lead her to uestion whether she can have a future in IranAs funny and poignant as its predecessor Persepolis 2 is another clear eyed and searing condemnation of the human cost of fundamentalism In its depiction of the struggles of growing up here compounded by Marjane's status as an outsider both abroad and at home it is raw honest and incredibly illuminatin. This is the continuing story of Marjane when her parents send her away to Austria where she has to live in a bunch of different places and doesn t understand a lot of what s going on It s still a really sad story I watched this dvd and my friends link will show some of the gifs from the movie It s a sad book and movie Anne s Review

Persepolis 2

In Persepolis heralded by the Los Angeles Times as one of the freshest and most original memoirs of our day Marjane Satrapi dazzled us with her heartrending memoir in comic strips about growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution Here is the continuation of her fascinating story In 1984 Marjane flees fundamentalism and the war with Ira to begin a new life in Vienna Once there she faces the trials of adolescence far from her friends and family and while she soon carv. Persepolis is the Greek name for the ancient city of Parsa located seventy miles northeast of Shiraz in present day Iran because I had been wondering about thatAlright the second half of this story 3 4 is less about the revolution and about a young woman growing up and discovering herself along the way Yes it s a fish out water story but most stories are when you re talking about that period of time between teenager and adultSatrapi has an extra layer of awkwardness because she s alone in a foreign country during this time Plus the upheaval that happened in her country during her childhood gave her a different outlook on things than most of the children teenagers in her boarding school Bottom line though Everyone wants to fit in at that ageSo she does what we all did during that time of our lifeShe experiments she rebels falls in love gets her heart broken gets her pride crushed loses herself and then makes her way homeUnfortunately Iran wasn t exactly the kind country that made it particularly easy to explore who you are or find yourself The blending of religious values with laws made it hard for her and other young adults to do the normal things that most of us take for granted as rites of passage And I m not saying the men in her country had it easy but being a woman in such a repressed society Wow It s hard to believe that there are still places like this in the world Ok while this was a really good story it didn t uite move me as much as the first book Still it s definitely worth reading And there were several things that surprised me about this oneThe biggest shock was that this was not a sad storyI thought it would end with bloodshed or something Nope There s no Happily Ever After but it leaves you satisfiedAlso Marjane s parents were pretty awesome I don t want to spoil anything for those of you who haven t read this but when I grow up I want to be like those guys I hope I have the guts to let my kids be themselves and make their own mistakes I don t think you need to be a woman to get this book either I think anyone can read this and find something of themselves in Satrapi s story because it s about finding out who you are and then being true to yourselfEven when it s not easy

Free read Persepolis 2

Es out a place for herself among a group of fellow outsiders she continues to struggle for a sense of belongingFinding that she misses her home than she can stand Marjane returns to Iran after graduation Her difficult homecoming forces her to confront the changes both she and her country have undergone in her absence and her shame at what she perceives as her failure in Austria Marjane allows her past to weigh heavily on her until she finds some like minded friends falls. Everyone needs to step off Geez This book is great It doesn t have that cute little panache of the first book because duh it s not about pre teen issues which are cute and naive it s about the world of impulsive effacement that drags a teenager to become a young adult She comes to be a part of the Western world she idealized and finds it colder in a subtle acute way than the repressive regime she escapes in the first book Because as violent and absurd as the regime is she still exists in a harbor of love She finds the West to be devoid of real faith in people Everyone is deceptive all points are theoretical The criticism she has is of the dullness and hypocrisy of rebellion arguing that the Europeans are selfish and mundane It s not as fiery as the first book because it s a rehashing in a different context i would even say it s interesting than the first book because of this Yet the cute little blips are still there take for instance the panel where she goes through puberty in a month and showcases the bizarre morphings that her body goes through going to her roommates farm in the middle of the mountains and her mother has a moustache and her sister is heidi there s not so much connection to the revolution and personal relationships effected by the regime Because this book is about her and her exile the formations of characters killed by the autocracy are kept out So that indulgence of catharsis is staid from besides her character But she feels so much In this tiny book she grieves and is frustrated time and time again and the pace with which she moves out of it it s compelling She doesn t form these heroic relationships really at all so to try to contrive them would be lame Though there is the point where she goes to chat with a legless soldier whom she knew from her childhood and the awkwardness is very thick until he tells a joke about a maimed soldier trying to get married and the passive exchange the white elephant is lifted Suddenly they can talk like souls If this book has anything to say independently of the first book it s in the contrast of the West to the East a cold and free menagerie versus a familiar zone of horror And still she dances through it like roberto benigni in Life is Beautiful Another thing i wanted to mention is this is a great documentation of supportive parents that i feel should be warranted The liberal values and hospitality towards adolescence they exhibit are warm and i feel like the novel is based on that that structural support of family which is the basis for her ability to grow out of both sides her punk european facade and the seemingly inescapable plague of fundamentalism So hurrah for Satrapi s folks eh

    I think what ultimately made this novel fall flat for me is that I was prepared for something along the lines of thought provoking and eye opener and instead finished this feeling rather disappointingly underwhelmedI thought the author's idea of writing her autobiography in the form of a comic to be an intrigui

    155 stars rounded downWell it has been awhile since a book made me so angry This was such a drastic change from Persepolis 1 I couldn't believe I was reading about the same person I really really loved Persepolis 1 It was poignant heartbreaking and educational It had a smart intelligent and strong heroine who asked the right uestions and had a heart in the right place I don't know where that person went in P
