About the book:
A new original graphic novel from the Eisner-nominated cartoonist of One Soul!
This ground-breaking new book looks at the lives and relationships of 24 individuals in a way only the medium of sequential art could.
Relationships change, grow, and end, but the one thing that always remains is the people inside who define both ourselves and our liaisons.

My thoughts:
I was not a fan of this book. I was really excited about the concept but it just fell flat to me.
The images weren't strong enough to carry the story.
Some relationships were intertwined, but those seemed far fetched.
The drama was intense but not moving- when it really could have been. Some very tough topics were highlighted, but they were not even close to developed.
As I moved on I felt more like "when will this end?" rather than "what comes next?".
Not my cup of tea.
One star is a stretch- really, I'd give it half if I did half stars in my rating system!

write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow

  1. Sorry you didn't like the book. I'm currently reading Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley and while I like the story well enough, the print is so small it hurts my eyes and head after a while. It's taking me much longer to read than I like.

    1. I hate when that happens- it distracts from the content so much! Hope it is worth sticking it out though!
