Persepolis was the most interesting biography I have read in the last few years. I loved how she made it into a comic book. It seemed to lighten or darken the mood and got you more into the book than one normally would with an autobiography. Satrapi was good about explaining her thoughts and what was going on. It helped me understand what was going on, better. Overall, I had never truly understood what exactly happened in the Iranian Revolution and the Iraq-Iran war. Because it was in her POV, I had a good outlet and experience for what actually happened. It was not the same type of information one would get from a researched history. Satrapi could write about what her neighbors said, as well as her parents. Because it is about herself, it was also more clear why people did what they did and what it was like to live in a situation like hers.
