Picks up where book 1 ended. I was aware of more present day happenings of how the Holocaust affected those who lived through it. Art picks up his father's story of being sent to Auschwitz. He talks of what happened and the fear they lived with as well as what they did to avoid the gas chamber. ...

I’ve been meaning to read this graphic novel as I’ve heard many great things about it so when our book-club announced it for this month’s read, I was pretty excited. This book afterall, was a graphic novel and it pertained to WWII, so what could go wrong? This graphic novel is presented in black-n...

Powerful story told through the eyes of the cartoonist son of his father who tries to survive WWII. The family is Jewish and the story is of their lives before WWII and the Nazi takeover of Germany to the time the man and his wife are separated at Auschwitz. It is a hard story to hear how the su...

Because of the disturbing subject matter I may not have read Maus if it wasn’t for my RL book club. I’d never read a graphic novel before but loved how artwork and narrative were teamed together. The book followed Artie, a man who decided to write and draw a graphic novel based on his father’ expe...

normally I don't like stories where bad things just keep happening to people, but this little collection walks the line perfectly. It is so absurd, and amy and jordan keep narrating what is happening to them in the way that I like so much (see also: [b:Garden|8519387|Garden|Yuichi Yokoyama|https://i...

The two volumes of Maus are Art Spiegelman's attempts to document the struggles of his parents before and during the Second World War, as well as his not always harmonious relationship with his elderly father. The framing narrative shows Art interviewing his father Vladek about his recollections of ...
