Jake Holtz English 300 Reaction Paper 2/11/08 Persepolis I especially enjoyed the fact that this book was written from the point of view of a child. Satrapi does a nice job of reflecting the “innocence” of a child in this book by having Marji initially ignorant of what was going on. This leads into my next point that I enjoyed watching Marji grow and begin to understand what was going on during the various revolutions and invasions. As aforementioned Satrapi begins the story with Marji being a little girl and is ignorant as to the deeper problem as to what is going on around her. She knows there is fighting. She knows there are demonstrations going on. However, she didn’t fully comprehend the consequences of what was going on at the time. For example she says that she and her friends did not like the new veils they had to wear especially because they did not know why they had to wear them. As the story goes on we find out that Marji’s parents would tell her that someone was on a “trip” when they were really in prison. Once again her ignorance shines through
