It's difficult to write something new about a book as critically acclaimed as Art Spiegelman's "Maus" graphic novel. I can only say that, if you haven't read it, you should. Yes, it's an amazing story of Holocaust survival, but what I hadn't counted on was the compelling story of Spiegelman's relationship to his father that was interwoven through the history. And Spiegelman's haunting artwork helps to present this story in a way that no other book could.
Somehow, five stars just isn't enough.
