Beeps bought these 2 novels no too long ago. I read them both in about 3 hours while camping over Thanksgiving weekend. I couldn't put them down. (I know I said I don't read, but these have lots of pictures, so it sort-of doesn't count.)

Anyway, a definite winner! The books were scary, heartbreaking, intense, smart, and very funny. Marjane Satrapi really opened my eyes to what it is like to grow up in a war torn and sometimes extreme Muslim world. Plus the movie opens on Christmas day. It looks stunning. Go here to see the trailer.
