the movie

I loved the movie. It was nice to hear their expression in there voices. I like how the hand of her dead friend was shown in the movie unlike the book. I stayed until the end of the movie so I was able to get the full feel for the movie. It was also nice that it was in English.

finishing persepolis

Ok so I liked this book better than the other one. It was easier to read and it wasn't as gory. At one point I actually had trouble at putting it down. I like how it is written with cushions for every thing that happens.

Ok so I read up to page 120 a little more than we were supposed to but I got caught up in the book. Growing up in a Jewish school Iwas forced to learn about the revolution but while reading this book I was finally able to get their side of the story. I was drawn into the story and had trouble putting the book down.
I like how the dead are depicted as laying down in staright lines.
It bothered me how the father went to the maids lover and explained that she was really a maid and not his daughter. I felt so bad for her loosing someong she cared for so much.
I enjoy how the book goes back in time briefly at some points, I never lose track of what time period it is.
So far Persepolis has really impressed me. I look forward to reading the last of it.

first two chapters

ok so I read the first two chapters of the second book of maus, I really did not like it. These books are making me really upset. However, I do like the way on some of the pages the charcters are shaded black, but I can not figure out what it means.
