they got some issues and they come out of it pretty well sort of like Persepolis with a little more lipstick and pathos a good read about what women in repressed circumstances have to deal with.

An interesting look at upper-class Saudi women and their difficulties in love and marriage. I found the style flat, however, and the constant focus on "finding a man" tiring after a while. I wanted to feel connected with the characters, but it didn't happen.
