Product description


As Iran enters another important period of change...I think this is particularly good time to pick up Persepolis. Satrapi's deceptively simple, almost whimsical drawings belie the seriousness and rich complexity of her story - but its also very funny too -- Emma Watson ― Our Shared Shelf

A revelation...you will remember it for a very long time -- Mark Haddon

Persepolis is a stylish, clever and moving weapon of mass destruction -- David Jenkins ― Sunday Telegraph

The magic of Marjane Satrapi's work is that it can condense a whole country's tragedy into one poignant, funny scene after another -- Natasha Walter ― Independent on Sunday

I cannot praise enough Marjane Satrapi's moving account of growing up as a spirited young girl in revolutionary and war-time Iran. Persepolis is disarming and often humorous but ultimately it is shattering -- Joe Sacco

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read
By kitabae_ on 6 December 2017
Persepolis is a semi-autobiographical graphic novel in which #MarjaneSatrapi writes about how her day-to-day life was during war times. She was brought up in a liberal family that supported education and didn't believe in the orthodox government regime. The Islamic Revolution which happened in 1979 went on to execute tens of thousands of people who opposed them. There were people fleeing the country, women being punished for not wearing the the veil properly, groups of people arrested for trivial things like partying, innocent people getting tortured for nothing. Often times I just shut the book and kind of took some time to think about these things. The Iran-Iraq war went on for 8 years leading to massive destruction. All of this is explained by a child through her eyes and how she grows up in this environment. She eventually leaves for some years but comes back when the war is over. The way she lived her life was inspiring because she struggled, fell in love with the wrong people, was absolutely devastated, had almost given up but fortunately, found a way to make it right. I loved the book because it wasn't preachy or anything. The book focuses more on her personal journey and gives an insight as to how people live in a war. 10/10 recommended for people like me who have completely no idea what war even means.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life is too short to be lived badly.
By Simra on 18 October 2017
I got this book yesterday and I finished it in one sitting. I normally don't write reviews but this book is so amazing and is worth all the hype. I absolutely loved Marjane as the rebel girl, as the girl who lost her way and couldn't hold her dignity, as the girl who came back and proved herself and also as the writer who has written this book so beautifully. It has a lot of humour, compassion and heartbreaks. It is lighthearted yet intense and as a person who doesn't know a lot about Iran, I confess I got to know a lot about it through this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contrast
By Jyotirmoy Ghosh on 18 June 2017
Well, as soon as you read, you immerse into the nation of Iran, their ideology and all. The story here, it is good because it shows the nation from a young girl's perspective at the beginning and then with time it gradually changes ( perspectives). I would highly recommend this book because of the fact that it shows a lot of contrasts in a persons' life. The tradition with modernism, Iranian to European. Try understanding the differences, and you would surely benefit from it. Try it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a Lazy Read- But Nothing Unique/Fresh
By Brishti Sarkar on 4 May 2019
When I began reading, I really loved it and enjoyed. But as you continue reading it it might get a bit monotonous and the typical diasporic life complications and teenage issues. It's not anything unique. Except for the humour, which is quite nice and fresh, the book doesn't have anything new to offer. It's a fresh and light read for the lazy readers in graphic novel format, so you don't have to read much. But I didn't really have much to take back from the book. It's extremely cliche and also gets boring and predictable after one point of time. Everything seems to be obvious. But keeping that aside, it's a good coming of age novel and the comic element is good. Iranian lifestyle is portrayed well in it as well. Political references are also well established. I would go with three stars as I had heard very highly of this book but didn't find anything very great.
