Compared to her other tales, such as "Persepolis," "Chicken with Plums" is disappointing. The story has much less of the depth of her other works, and the characters were less compelling.

Does not compare with her other works.

I love Satrapi's work but this one is a bit weak. As the synopsis says, it has interesting anecdotes about her family and good explorations into human nature, but it's a bit too short to be deep or profound.

Another wonderful offering from the author of Persepolis!

Love all of (the few that there are) Marjane Satrapi's graphic novels.
