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 ...

This work combines the two parts 'My father bleeds history' and 'And here my troubles began'. Even when I was reading Maus I knew it would not be easy to write a review of it. Many things, if not everything has been said about it, so I will just focus on explaining some of my thoughts while I was...

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus tells the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler’s Europe, and his son, a cartoonist coming to terms with his father’s story.

This is another book that i had to read for my IB English class and I must say that, even though the topic of the book is a very serious one, I just didn't wanna read it. I prefer to stay away from anything that has to do with the Holocaust because I know far too many details because of my family's ...

What has always troubled me about the book is that cats are natural predators of mice, so the analogy with the Holocaust seems dangerously wrong.

Three letters: W-O-W. I was truly amazed by this book and fully understand the Pulitzer the author received for it.The format is brilliant: the book you're holding and reading is actually being developed and written in front of your eyes. The constant switch between present day and war memories forc...
