In short: I am in love with this book. I think the blurb above summarizes quite well why it's such a great story. The protagonist, outspoken and unafraid of her opinion, is very curious about the workings of the world around her and through her eyes we get to see the terrifying propagation of religious extremism in Iran due to war.
Overall I really enjoyed Persepolis and I recommend to everyone. Through it you will learn a lot and it balances humor, sweetness and heart-wrenching moments, creating a vivid portrait of what life was in Iran in the 80's.
