Blind Date with a Book comment: 1st impression - 1 (dud); Characters - 10 (stud); Story - 10 (stud). "I hate graphic novels but just focused on the words to get into the book and was soon hooked."

Wow & I don't really like graphic novels. But this one I picked up & couldn't put down. I can't imagine this story being as effectively delivered through any other way than this - not only is it a comic book but the characters are in animal costumes… a way of double removing the story so the Holocaust doesn't completely eat you up as you read the book?

Another one for the 'essential graphic novels' list. Not only a story of the author's father's experiences as a Polish Jew in WWII, but it's also the story of the relationship between father and son. This is part one so things have gone from bad to worse and I think can only get even worse in the second part. The art is stark and black and white, the only telling details are groups being depicted by different animals (mice are Jews, cats are Nazis, Pigs are non-Jews and when Jews pretend to be non-Jews they're depicted as wearing Pig masks)

Another great non-fiction memoir, another book you guys should try is, Persepolis by Marjane, it is also a graphic novel memoir.

Amazing 1st hand account of WW2 from the perspective of a survivor.

This book is in very bad condition. It needs repair.

Spiegelman tells his father's story of surviving the holocaust in this graphic novel format. The story intertwines him asking his father questions to get him to tell his story plus his own doubts of how you can ever appropriately represent that story in graphic novel form. Very well done. This is book one of two.
