Maus, Vol. 2: And Here My Troubles Began - Art Spiegelman Much of what what made Maus I a great read applies to the second installment as well. I found the dynamic between father and son in this book less engaging (though it is explored more thoroughly then in the first one) and the history of Vladek more fascinating. Of course, that has more to do with Vladek's experiences in this book compared to the other and not necessary due to any great changes of artistic or literary style by the author.

Maus I and Maus II have won critical acclaim. And for good reason.
