In Persepolis, heralded by the Los Angeles Times as "one of the freshest and most original memoirs of our day," Marjane Satrapi dazzled us with her heartrending memoir-in-comic-strips about growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. Here is the continuation of her fascinating story. In 1984, Marjane flees fundamentalism and the war with Iraq to begin a new life in Vienna. Once there, she faces the trials of adolescence far from her friends and family, and while she soon carves out a place for herself among a group of fellow outsiders, she continues to struggle for a sense of belonging. Finding that she misses her home more than she can stand, Marjane returns to Iran after graduation. Her difficult homecoming forces her to confront the changes both she and her country have undergone in her absence and her shame at what she perceives as her failure in Austria. Marjane allows her past to weigh heavily on her until she finds some like-minded friends, falls in love, and begins studying art at a university. However, the repression and state-sanctioned chauvinism eventually lead her to question whether she can have a future in Iran. As funny and poignant as its predecessor, Persepolis 2 is another clear-eyed and searing condemnation of the human cost of fundamentalism. In its depiction of the struggles of growing up--here compounded by Marjane's status as an outsider both abroad and at home--it is raw, honest, and incredibly illuminating.… (més)

The second half of Satrapi's memoir, about her life after she left Iran (and subsequently returned), is just as honest, powerful, hilarious, and heart-breaking as the first half. ( )

In short: everyone should read Persepolis.

Volume 1 had a charming, whimsical feel despite the backdrop of revolutionary Iran. Volume 2 is the natural extension of that, keeping its charming style but moving on to intense feelings of alienation and pain as Marjane finds herself stuck between worlds as she grows up. Even though I grew up under very different circumstances, I deeply relate to her search for herself in Austria and Iran and how she never quite fit in either culture, and the deep depression she fell into when she returned to her family. There’s so much I could say about the art style and the universality of the emotions but it would all fall short, so I can only say this: read it. Persepolis is incredible. ( )

This was excellent as well, but I only gave it three stars due to loving only the second half of the book. The story picks right up where Persepolis left off, but I feel like it faltered in trying to cover too much time. Persepolis only covers about two years of Satrapi's childhood; the sequel spans 10. I just don't think the book is able to to truly cover 10 years without loosing something. I also felt like the first few teenage years could have been written by most people (rebellion, drug use, etc.) I didn't get enough of a feel about her experience as an immigrant and then felt like her return to Iran was a bit rushed and glossed over at times. But second section of the book about her reactions to modern-day Iran (and trying to fit in) was quite interesting, and I'd still recommend this overall. It's a nice complement to Persepolis. ( )

The sequel to Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return manages to strike lightning twice, managing to be simultaneously a historical chronicle, a memoir, and a humanist paean. Makes you laugh, cry, and scream in equal measure.

Despite the subtitle, the first half of Persepolis 2 takes place in Vienna, Austria, where Satrapi moved to as a teenager in the 1980s. Cutting and incisive, Satrapi does an outstanding job describing the awkwardness of adolescence, made worse by a permanent “outsider” status and lingering guilt over her family still living in wartime Iran. P2 does a great job of demarcating the cultural boundaries between Europe and Iran, and manages to get in some good jabs at punk, anarchism, and nuns in the process.

But the story really shines following the titular return, as Satrapi tries to re-integrate herself into a society she left years ago. While at times discomforted by the relative decadence of the West, theocratic Iran is veritably suffocating, and we follow Satrapi as she goes through marriage, divorce, depression, disillusionment, two suicide attempts (both depicted very sardonically), and a fuller coming-of-age.

What I truly loved was Satrapi’s discontented spirit, an unwillingness to accept the reality of the mullahs’ Iran. She engages in many quiet acts of rebellion – having a boyfriend, wearing makeup, remaining ignorant of the Twelve Imams – and a few loud ones, which she is lucky enough to escape largely unscathed from. Bending but never breaking, Satrapi’s time in Tehran is a genuinely inspiring tale of resistance. Even if all you can do is get drunk and listen to music with your friends at home, it’s not giving into the fear that counts. ( )

Unlike the first book, it’s disjointed, tawdry, and unfocused. The story of her young adulthood doesn’t demonstrate the insight that made the first book so special.
 
May Satrapi continue to blend the personal and the political to such extraordinary effect.
afegit per stephmo | editaBoston Globe, Carlo Wolff (Sep 14, 2004)
 
Ultimately, Persepolis 2 provides another valuable window into an alien (yet all too human) way of life, but it's a far more difficult book than Persepolis. A child who lets her harsh environment interfere with her empathy for others is understandable and tragic, but an adult with the same problem borders on distressing solipsism.
 
Satrapi's voice is very much her own, and the way the clash between European and Middle Eastern culture has played out in her life makes for compelling reading. What her book lacks, though, is perspective on the cultural revolution in which she and her circle lived (and sometimes died).
afegit per stephmo | editaSlate, Douglas Wolk (Sep 7, 2004)
 
Still, her rebellious stunts never undermine Satrapi's unconditional love for her troubled homeland—which, in these times of religious fervor and political gain, resonates all the more poignantly.

Persepolis was originally published in 4 volumes. Some later editions, especially in the U.S., combined volumes 1-2 into one work Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood; volumes 3-4 were combined into Persepolis: The Story of a Return. Keep this in mind when combining/separating.
