Reading in 2010: Maus II

I began reading this book immediately after I finished Maus I-I couldn’t wait! This installment did not disappoint.¬†Chronicling Vladek’s trials in¬†Auschwitz, cattle cars, death march, and liberation, this story was fast paced and gripping.

I showed it to my book club ladies, and after they got over the initial shock of the cover, they agreed that it looked very interesting. They also informed me that graphic novels are the “new, cool thing”. Didn’t know that!
