Persepolis the movie

I have already previously seen this movie in my english class last year just to let you know so you dont think i am just making this whole thing up. I definitely am glad i watched it after reading the book because it helped me to understand what was really going on and what her true feelings really were. In the movie you could actually see her real facial expressions, not just straight or curved line. You could really see how scared or upset she was. The movie made it a lot clearer what was going on most of the time and so it helped me to understand her whole situation.

At first i was not really into this novel, but after a little while of reading it it got me really hooked. I do get a little confused because in some of the pictures a lot of the people look exactly alike and i can not tell who is who, but i guess that is not too important.

Maus part two

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was really interesting to learn more about the holocaust and to learn what my relatives (like the ones i never met) had to go through. I liked how even though all the characters were animals, it was still SO realistic.
