Maus’s Review While reading the book Maus it has made me learn to hate the creative mind of an author of a drawing book with important history. It’s unbelievable that the author even sold copies. From one reader to another, don’t even want to remember reading these pages filled with ink. Why does the author Art Spiegalman want to kill the reader, all the reader wants is a good story but because of author’s like Art Spiegelman readers don’t have one . Artie is the author’s character in the graphic novle getting his father’s life story. and his father is vladek in the novle. Now reviewing history, Jews were humans not animals. In Art Spiegelman graphic novle he draw the Jews as mouses, poles as pigs, and the germans as cats. these were real people why did the author change humans into animals. It’s a disgrace to know that books like this even exsist. This doesn’t think of the real people but makes the reader think of animals because of the pictures, the meaning of history is because it happened in the past and no one can change the past in least they’re a time traveler and of cousres that’s impossible. The authors purpose was to tell his father’s story in a respectful way. He really should of considered that before publishing. When his son learns about his father’s life he discovers why his father acts so crazy. Everything that his father has been through has affected their father and son relationship. Think about it, this is relatiable and similar to many different books it’s nothing new except for the ridiculous drawing of the animals. The images had no purpose but for some unknown reason the author thought it would but obviously he wasn’t thinking straight. Now in MAUS the main character is a survivor from the war , his name is Vladek and his son Artie is an author in the making and wants to write about the things that happened in his father’s life. Of course during the holocaust jews were treated wrose than dirt and the Germans were to blame. The Germans believed they were better than the Jews so they ripped their families apart, their homes, and their life styles. They stripped them of their identity, no long were they called by their number instead by their name . “ they registered us in...they took from us our names. and here they put me my number.” The Jews had nothing left but hope that the war would be won by the americans and they would be rescued. Over all the book wasn’t able to give that ending and that made the book even wrose. MAUS isn’t a book for people who want history to stay important because this books makes history look like a joke and the Jewish race doesn’t deserve that, haven’t they already suffered enough. If writers think it’s okay to mess with the history then they shouldn’t be writers because it’s not their history to re-write.
