Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
This inventive story was a fun read and the illustrations are fantastically creepy. The writing, however, is the clearest and most consistent example of “telling” instead of “showing” that I’ve ever read. The artwork was far more evocative. Altogether, I feel that this would have made a better graphic novel, with the story told through illustrations and dialogue.
