Brajesh's Review : Embroideries
I had loved "Persepolis", the last graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi that I had read. However "Embroideries" didn’t live upto my expectations.
The story unfolds over one afternoon, where 9 Iranian women of varying life narratives, get-together for a post-lunch tea session. The stories are interesting and a few are thought provoking, as well. Unfortunately the graphic renditions didn’t add much to the narrative. It’s a read of about 20 minutes, I would suggest you browse over this in a book shop and then pick-up Persepolis to experience the real power of the author’s narrative, graphic art as well as the Iranian story.
Rating : 3 / 5
