Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical Persepolis sort of became an international publishing event, and that means that there have been lots a slightly similar autobiographical graphic novels published both in the US and in Europe... so many that it's almost become a dominant modern comics genre. Many of them have not quite been as good as Persepolis. Some have been stunning artistic achievements - for example brilliant books like Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic and Epileptic, but they've also been perhaps a little bit dry compared with the compulsively readable (and often very funny) "Persepolis".

This book feels like the real thing - it's the the book people can search out if they enjoyed "Persepolis". It's got a charismatic rebellous 'punky' female main character not too far removed from Marjane in "Persepolis". It's set in the 80s, and it's got an international outlook. In some ways I think it may even be a better book than "Persepolis". "Persepolis" had flawed minimal art in the early chapters and a few self-indulgent scenes that were mostly fixed in the brilliant movie version. Ulli Lust's book, on the other hand, just feels perfect. The writing and the vivid recollections are astonishing. And the art is loose and almost sketchy, but I wouldn't change a line. It just feels so right and perfect.

HASH(0x91d59930) out of 5 stars Pretty much a perfect book 4 July 2013
By Michael 'De Smurführer' Thomsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical The Complete Persepolis sort of became an international publishing event, and that means that there have been lots a slightly similar autobiographical graphic novels published both in the US and in Europe... so many that it's almost become a dominant modern comics genre. Many of them have not quite been as good as Persepolis.

It's a great book for mature readers, and probably also for some older teenagers, although conservative US parents would probably have nightmares about their little 'kids' reading the decadent European truths about life found in this book. Things get dark, this is a young girl trying to survive on her own in an often hostile country.

(Considering the title of this book, "Today Is The Last Day of The Rest Of Your Life", it was a little bit unsettling that I later found out I started reading it the day before its influental translator and publisher Kim Thompson died of cancer. This must have been one of the last books he worked on. He was one of the most brilliant people working behind the scenes in the comics world. R.I.P. Kim ... I never knew him, but he sure influenced my reading-habits)

HASH(0x91d59984) out of 5 stars The kind of book that reminds me why I read comics! 19 Aug. 2013
By R. Stein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finished this incredible page turner last night. Over the years I've developed a love for autobiographical graphic novels and this one was knocked out of the park. When the artist was 16 in Austria, she got into the punk scene and met some chick and they decided to illegally cross the border into Italy with no money in their pocket. It's just a wonderful, street level view of 80's Italy. As horrible as it sounds, it was fascinating to see how Italians treat women, especially in Palermo. Apparently they expect their women to have honor, so when a woman says no...that's expected. But no doesn't mean no in Italy. She ends up in a Villa owned by the son of the head of mafia in Palermo and barely escapes with her life. There's drugs, sex and incredible portrayals of the beauty of Italy by a woman I've never heard of but will certainly be keeping an eye out for. The book may seem a little expensive but when you consider it's the size of a phone book, it's worth twice the price. Highly recommended to anyone even slightly interested in the subject matter. Loved it.

HASH(0x92498c48) out of 5 stars Wonderful art and quite a story! 16 Jun. 2013
By A voracious reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not only is the artwork really good and not only is this a true story, but it's beautifully-rendered and very compelling. The book is quite lengthy, but there's not a false note.
HASH(0x91d59c90) out of 5 stars I was impressed by her expressive drawing style and brutally honest storytelling (as best she remembers 31 Aug. 2014
By Paul J. Morehead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life is one hell of a read.
The size was daunting at first, but as soon as I saw how raw and punk Mrs. Lust's drawings are I was hooked.

I wanted to get right into the meat of the story (without cutlery.) I felt this book portrayed the tenacity of the human spirit (despite the many mistakes and follies,) and how the most challenging situations can lead to unexpected triumphs (knowledge of the self.)

I was at the mercy of Ulli's exploits every time she'd cash in for the night, only to discover another sleazy Italian man trying to get in her pants. I was impressed by her expressive drawing style and brutally honest storytelling (as best she remembers.)

Having travelled through Europe & India on a lot of faith and very little money, I know that this book is as real as it gets, (despite not getting accosted or ogled at every corder.) I can honestly say that TITLDOTROYL is a ride well worth taking.

By osopanda - Published on Amazon.com

I was stalking Amazon waiting for the reprint of this as used copies started going for $50 and higher (I checked it out from the library originally). I can't express how much I love this book - I read it one sitting until 2 AM. There are few things I love more than well-written stories of women going on ill-advised misadventures.
