“Persepolis is a stylish, clever and moving weapon of mass destruction.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
I read Persepolis in my English International Baccalaureate course in high school, and found it to be a brilliant book.
It is the autobiography of a girl who experiences life in Iran during the revolution, which is both educating and exciting.
It is told from the first person point of view, and begins with her as a young child before the revolution. It continues and tells of the new dress codes in school, and the new rules that were introduced, and then follows along as she begins to experience this revolution as a teenager.
