Satrapi's unique illustrations make the Iran of her youth come to life. Sen Türkiye'den değil, baştakilerin zihniyetinden ve bu zihniyet doğrultusunda değişen fikirlerden nefret ediyorsun.
Any one who is interrested could borrow it from me if you are in Jeddah that is! Piensas en las víctimas y te invade otro tipo de angustia.

Sure, they're both graphic novels whose subject is generally similar. As in all graphic novels, the images are just as potent, if not more, than the plot itself and this is no exception.
How can media fake facts. It was lovely and clear. And, I agree with Marjane. So, how could Iranian middle class intellectuals and professionals in the late 1970s have been so different than me and my family? As the war intensifies, Marji rushes home one day to find a long-range ballistic missile has hit her street. Why did she have to go to an all-girls school?

Maybe I should just give up on literature and try harder drugs.
So in an effort to diversify my reading aka read something other than romance for once I joined the Goodreads group Our Shared Shelf, a feminist book club run by Emma Watson.

Her high school life period was not in Iran but in Austria.
You need time for that kind of change though. What a brilliant and so very important little book. And I was feeling quite disillusioned by the whole thing. It's both amusing and emotionally real.
