Nothing too serious. Okay, that`s totally a lie.
This is my 37. CV-review. You don`t even care, do you?
What I like.
This is a black and white-book with clear art.
It`s by Marjane Satrapi!
It`s a relatively quick read. It may take an hour or a half of it read it. Or maybe 45 minutes. Or 55. Or 23. Even if it`s over 12 pages long. Or something like that. I didn`t count it accurately enough.
Since it`s an autobiography, it`s realistic, and you can count on the fact that it`s also true.
This is simply hilarious! No matter how serious things this has, there are also alot of comedic parts.
There are alot of "I can`t believe this"-moments.
Cultural differences between the western world and Iran. Fascinating.
The art, page lay-outs, lettering ( handwritten ) and writing are true Satrapi. It doesn`t hide anything, it`s simply gorgeous and it`s not too serious. At least, not this book. Persepolis is lot more serious...
What I don`t like.
Because this is an autobiography, you can be sure that every bad thing in this book has really happened...
The writing is sometimes very difficult to read, since it`s written in cursive. But, it`s my opinion, so maybe it`s more easier for you to read.
What`s a bit of both.
So, this has a sudden ending. It`s nice enough, but it`s still a sudden ending. So it`s both good and bad.
So, to conclude...
If you see it somewhere, I recommend you to buy it. But only if you`re completely sure. If you`re not, loan it from somewhere first. Then read it.
