Mini Reviews #8: The Complete Maus/ Tea Dragon Society


Ebook, 296 Pages
Graphic Novel/ History/ War
By: Art Spiegelman
Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 1/2

πŸ’‰ This cover has been on my radar for a looooong time and it usually is on the most bought books in my country when I check the online bookstores. I am not a fan of history and so I avoided it for the longest time possible. A book I was reading did mention that it was a graphic novel about Jew people and what they went through and I became interested and found myself a copy!

πŸ’‰ I like what the author did, he is very smart, Jew people are the mice and the Germans are the cats and this is a sneaky way to reduce tension! The author tells us what happened IRL through his father and the book is divided into 2 parts. I loved how the author stayed genuine and showed us positives and negatives and he was not biased! I think this rawness and honesty added a lot to the story.

πŸ’‰ The graphics were not the best and there was much dialogue and it was a bit crammed and a bit hard to read! But at the end of the say, I learned from this book more than years in school did to me!

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟

πŸ’‰ I wanted to read this as soon as I saw the graphics in it and unfortunately that was it, just a collection of good drawings with a nearly non-existent plot and characters I did not care about.

πŸ’‰ I think my 3 stars are generous because I would have given it 2, I am just taking in consideration that this is supposed to be for children and that the graphics were great! The plot is basically a group of friends who are Tea enthusiasts gather and bring back the old tea society, the end!

πŸ’‰ I sound mean but I expected more, I have been trying to find the perfect mix between story line and good graphics which I only did find in Saga! The search continues…
