Maus, I: A Survivor's Tale: My Father Bleeds History

15196Goodreads Says:    A story of a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe and his son, a cartoonist who tries to come to terms with his father's story and history itself.

My Thoughts:

-    This was a very unique graphic novel.

-    I was intrigued that this was a true story about the author and his father's story.

-    The story was captivating and sad. I read this in one sitting. I just couldn't stop reading.

-    I love the old man's accent. It was fun. 

-    The illustrations were dull. There wasn't much emotion or movement. I think they could have been better.

-    The ending was abrupt. I really want to read the second book.

  1. I liked Vladek's accent too. I'm glad the author left that in. It really gave you sense of his character.
