Gostei muito, achei uma boa representação da segunda guerra. Apenas fiquei decepcionada em como o autor decidiu terminar o livro, achei que podia ter sido de uma forma melhor. ( )

Di Maus si può dire solo bene, perché parlarne male sarebbe come parlare male della Divina Commedia. Questa Graphic Novel, infatti, non è un semplice romanzo a fumetti: è un monumento, un testo che dovrebbe essere fatto studiare a scuola... tutti i libri, i film, le analisi sulla Shoà impallidiscono di fronte a quest'opera che non ha eguali in quanto a ispirazione, potenza narrativa e sensibilità... Lo si può aprire in una pagina a caso e leggerne 3 vignette di seguito anche senza capire l'impianto della trama per essere letterlmente inondati da emozioni fortissime e da un'empatia che si possono provare solo raramente leggendo un'opera letteraria!!

The medium and presentation undercuts whatever defenses I would have to holocaust tales read from under the blanketed covers of my bed.

Other issues are also addressed, generation gaps, seemingly obvious personal contradictions, filial concerns, life-defining tragedies and how they are survived; these issues are expertly showcased without ever being diminished through simplification.

There is also am embedded love story, but unlike the usual "Love tale in situation X"turn of events that simple love instead propels the story forward through everything that we are meant to absorb. ( )

This was my first graphic novel. I decided it was time for me to try one out. I chose a classic that is widely respected. I was impressed. It was definitely a different way of telling a story but one that I enjoyed, and it was a story very much worth my time. ( )
