This arrived yesterday evening, and I've just finished reading it tonight, which is probably the quickest I've read a book in my life! After reading Persepolis, I was expecting something longer, but the quality in Satrapi's writing and unique illustrations are second to none. I won't give away too much of the story, but the book is based around the real life of Satrapi's uncle, who takes to his room to die after his beloved Tar is broken by his bitter wife. The book is divided into his final 8 days, and the flashbacks and memories that come to him during that time, which explain the depression he feels. The ending cleverly links back to the beginning of the book, and leaves the reader with a sad, but poignant feeling. A fab read.
