Persepolis 2 - Marjane Satrapi I enjoyed this, but it isn't as good as the first book.

Persepolis 2 starts directly after the first book and tells the story of how Marjane growing up as a teenager and a young woman, trying to find where her identity lay.

She's an incredibly interesting sounding person, although I wonder what she's really like, outside of black and white pictures of her graphic novel?

The first one was more humorous and the second more interesting. It is very interesting to see what lies beneath the veil, the hidden rebellion and individuals that perhaps we are not aware of in the western world.

A worthwhile read but it didn't really grip me - but that might have been my current mood as I read it in between a lot of other books. Well written/drawn and a very personal, honest account of her life.
