While I enjoyed Book of

While I enjoyed Book of Salt, I so far really enjoy Persepolis.  This is the first book we've read that I can say right from the beginning, I know why we're reading this in a feminist studies class.

I think graphic novels are great, because the story is basically told twice at the same time.  The words are still telling the story, but the pictures just add to it.  I love putting my own images to the text I'm reading, but sometimes, when there's a lot of dialogue, I'm not sure if I'm understanding the emotions correctly.  I love graphic novels because I understand how the dialogue is meant to be felt.  Also, in my opinion it is so easy to feel a connection with  Marjane, because the way she acts reminds me of any child.  And its fun to watch her grow up.
