"But PERSEPOLIS fails in several key places--the most obvious of which is graphically. Which is not to malign the art, which for all its simplicity and occasional roughness is clear and easy to follow; rather, it's that this is a comic at all. It is hard to imagine how this book is better as a graphic novel than it would be as a simple prose memoir...."

Negative Critique:
"What makes it
unappealing to the Iranian government is not its accurate time-table portrayal of the
political events that took place from 1979 to 1984—a chaotic and turbulent time in Iran’s
modern history—but its reductive portrayal of Iranians and Islam during a critical
moment in Western and Muslim world relations."
-Lila Barzegar, "PERSEPOLIS & ORIENTALISM:A CRITIQUE OF THE RECEPTION HISTORY OF SATRAPI'S MEMOIR", Colorado State University
"And PERSEPOLIS, austere as it may look, is full of
warmth
and
surprise
,
alive with humor
and a
fierce independence of spirit
. Its flat, stylized depiction of the world — the streets and buildings of Tehran and Vienna in particular —
turns geography into poetry
."
- A.O. SCOTT, "In a Flat World, a Rebel With a Cause", The New York Times
Writing Technique:
How she tells the story...
"A memoir of growing up as a girl in revolutionary Iran, PERSEPOLIS provides a unique glimpse into a nearly
unknown and unreachable way of life
....That Satrapi chose to tell her remarkable story as a
gorgeous
comic book makes PERSEPOLIS totally
unique
and
indispensable
."
- Andrew D. Arnold, "An Iranian Girlhood", TIME Magazine
"Husbands and wives always loved each other, and that was what marriage meant." - Chapter 3, pg 21
"...he spoke for far horizon. He spoke for change and chance."- Chapter 4, pg 29
"The kiss of his memory made pictures of love and light against the wall. Here was peace."- Chapter 20, pg 193

"In

THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD, Miss Hurston has fulfilled the early promise of her first books. Her writing is of
the essence of poetry
,
deeply communicative
, possessed of a primitive rhythm that
speaks truly to the consciousness
even before thought can form. This new novel is one of
warmth
and
humor
and rich, transcendent
beauty
."
- Unsigned publisher, "Review: Their Eyes Were Watching God", J. B. Lippincott Company
"This is Zora Hurston's third novel, again about her own people--and it is
beautiful
. It is about

Negroes
, and a good deal of it is written in

dialect
, but really

it is about every one
, or least every one who isn't so civilized that he has lost the capacity for
glory
."
-Lucille Tompkins, Review: Their Eyes Were Watching God, New York Times Book Review
"...no theme, no message, no thought. In the main, her novel is not addressed to the Negro, but to a white audience whose chauvinistic tastes she knows how to satisfy."
-Richard Wright, New Masses
"It isn't that this novel is bad, but that it deserves to be better".
- Otis Ferguson, The New Republic
"Two things everybody's got tuh do fuh theyselves. They got tuh go tuh God, and they got tuh find out about livin' fuh theyselves."
-Chapter 20, pg 192
