Persepolis is the true story of a girl growing up in Iran during the early 1980’s. What’s awesome about this book is it’s in comic book format. It made for easy understanding of the government’s transition of power and how life was during that time  (seen through the eyes of a 12+ year old). I read this in a few hours and went to the bookstore for Persepolis II.

 

If you want to read a book that will pull at your heart strings, this is it. I was crying by page 8, underlining passages, giggling through parts and then crying some more. This story is told from the dogs viewpoint which is funny, sweet, and full of wisdom.

Could Not Put This Book Down

309 pages in 48hrs. I bought this book in honor of October and Halloween. I wanted to read something scary. The book implies scary, but it’s really a mystery/thriller. Regardless, I literally had a hard time putting the book down. It reads like a movie (which according to the back of the book is in the making) and  I was engaged at the get go.  I found myself reading faster and faster toward the end because I couldn’t wait to find out who did it. Two thumbs up!
