finishing first book of maus

group one
topic 3
p99 lines showing he is scared
p96 phone ringing
p143 lines to show darkness in closet
146 lines to show darkness

So in reading the rest of the first book, it made me very upset. I mean everything is written very well, but I would rather not put myself in the this story. I like how the style of everything doesn't change throughout the book, and there is nothing absract.

This book is at once very abstract (with animals as human!) but at the same time extremely concrete, as you mentioned.

The inherent reality of the Holocaust does make this a difficult read - do you think your opinion of the book would change if it were about a war that you knew less about? Or if it were fictional?
