    "I love this graphic narrative. Marjane Satrapi's use of illustrations to write about her life growing up in Iran was a fantastic way to learn about what life was like for people living in Iran during the revolution. Excellent work."

    "This is the raw, heart-wrenching coming of age story of a woman born and raised in Iran. I can't strongly enough recommend that everyone who wants to (or claims to) understand the Middle East read this book."

    "My daughter loved this book so much I had to give it a read. Hard hitting and graphic, yet tender and sympathetic. I whole heartedly recommend it if your son or daughter is at least a teenager."

    "Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming--both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar, a young life entwined with the history of her country yet filled with the universal trials and joys of growing up."

    "This was something different for me. It's not something that I regularly read or look at. It was something new and different for me. "

    "A classic coming of age story, but I'm not sure if this would be one of the best books on the subject, A great comic, and sort of predictable read. Nice to see a child coming of age in a different culture however."
  • Joan Estrada

    "This is an awesome graphic novel about a person's childhood and their account during the Islamic Revolution. Perfect for young adults, maybe a bit too mature for middle school age children. However, it is an excellent read."
  • Patricia Ford

    "The Complete Persepolis is the compilation of Marjane Satrapi's graphic memoir of her life during the Islamic Revolution. It's great for fans of memoirs and autobiographies."
