I've decided to write a letter to the author of Maus. I wanted to tell art spiegelman what I thought of his book, well at least what I've read so far. Where do I start, three chapter into the story and I find myself still uninterested. Maus just seems like another holocaust story to me. Don't get me wrong I think the holocaust was a awful thing, and I feel sorry for anyone who was affected by it. But i kinda feel like as being a black person my own people have been through… well a lot, I'm not pulling out any measuring stick here but that's just my opinion. I kinda wonder why, In my entire academic life I've been assigned more holocaust story than slavery. Of'course this is just my own personal gripe, but I digress from my point and I hope you can see why I see maus as just another holocaust story. To get a little more into the book. the story is basically about you telling someone else's story, a holocaust surviver that's old, grumpy and with a great personality. Sarcasm intended, but because Vladek is such a awful person I find it hard to feel for his struggles. I mean he's been through a lot but I think he should be a little more grateful to be alive to be able to tell his story because, in his story a lot of people weren't able to do the same. I'm digressing from my point again but the story has fail to interest me half way in, and I can pretty much predict the how the rest turns out. It's not a mystery who survives, it make me not want to read the rest of the book. The one thing I can say about the book that does set it apart being that it's a comic. Ps there are much more interesting comics out their... Just saying.
