    read!!

    The book i read was Persepolis 2 The Story Of A Return by Marjane Satrapi. This book spoke to me that not everything is
    easy as you may think it is. People have a hard time living by themself and wouldn't have the best time there could be. Many people would say oh it would fun living by yourself and it will be great parents not telling you what to do all the time. Like for example persepolis she had a hard time she was in war and didnt see her parents as much. Before that happen she started to hang out with people you wouldn't expect her hanging out with.She did drugs and started smoking. One this that i was very inspire by was that even though she did drugs and smoke she studied very hard and passed her test.
    Something that I was very curious about was that she didnt know as much as i thought she would. It must of feel weird not knowing something at a older age. The one thing that I think that I didn't really understand was that a women and a guy couldn't be seen with each other without marriage papers.
    I like this book it got me very interesting and i was very surprised. I would of never imagine me reading this type of book I as very glad that i did. This book had a lot of things she went though.like some of her ex-boyfriends were more unexpected then I thought, she found out that one of her ex-boyfriend was gay and one cheated on her.

    AP World History Review: Interesting view

    Persepolis one and two were outstanding books because of the opposite views of Western society that are posed by the author. Marjane Satrapi, as a young child, felt a strong sense of nationalism and urged her parents to engage themselves in politics not only politically, but physically as well. As she grew older, however, Marjane drifted away from her close bonds to the ideas of Iranian freedom and slowly took on the vague image of a Westerner. From her travels throughout Europe, she established a viewpoint from the difference regions of the world and she learned many ideals that had once been foreign to her. However, after her travels and misfortunes in Europe, she once again developed a hungering for her old nation, Iran. Through trials and tribulations in Europe, she had come to appreciate her home country, even though problems lingered with the government. Still, however, marriage at a fairly young age took a toll on her life. Her viewpoints, despite being altered slightly in Europe remained, for the most part, the same. Thus, I would recommend these books to anyone who is wishing to learn not only more about Iranian history, but also about the views of Middle Easterners about Western civilization.

    A reviewer

    I really enjoyed the graphic novel 'Persepolis 2' because it is a book that would grab your attention. it was basically about a teen age girl named Marjane that was sent from Iran to a boarding school in Europe because of the war in Iran. Marjane was kicked out of the school and was homeless for three months and went to a friend house and spoke to her parents. she went back to Iran and meet a guy named reza she married him but left him behind and went to France

    COOL

    This book is crazy it talks about a girl named Marjane who lived during the Iraqian War. It was funny to me how she lived her life. But she shouldent have gone past the limit and doing drugs to have pleasure in her life. This book was really good and I would recommend this book. :]

    A Woman of the world for the world

    This piece of literature is almost fundamental to the persons living in war and especially for those who live in absence of war, but feel the blows. Throughout, I came away with the sense that Americans and Easterners are not as cookie-cut as the media makes out. We do not belong to one group that classifies us, we belong to the world in it's entirety. Marjane takes us to this ultimate feeling and to a place deep in her heart for all to see and hear.
