Maus, A Survivor's Tale, Book I: My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman

Maus, A Survivor's Tale displays the life of the persecuted Jews in a way anybody can understand. The pictures provide all the details that are usually lacking in a graphic novel. I found the book touching and memorable.

Drawing a Blank: Or How I Tried to Solve a Mystery, End a Feud, and Land the Girl of My Dreams by Daniel Ehrenhaft
Drawing a Blank: Or How I Tried to Solve a Mystery, End a Feud, and Land the Girl of My Dreams

amolegare, May 29, 2007

To Draw A Blank is a completely illogical tale about a graphic novelist written in his point of view. His father is kidnapped and he has to go to the U.K. to rescue him. The events seem to occur only to make the life of the author as horrible as possible. I found the unrealistic quality unnerving. I couldn't even find a deep-down moral to the story. However the book does show the personal growth of the protagonist and the interspersed comic strips provide more information on the state of the main character than any of the actual text. It also does have an unexpected but satisfying ending.

The ladies of Missalonghi by Colleen Mccullough

amolegare, May 19, 2007

This book is a wonderful romance set in a small town. Three spinsters, daughter, mother, and aunt, live in the house of Missalonghi. The daughter Missy sets out to escape from their poor spinster life and does so with help from her friend Una. A lovely story without chapter breaks that you won't be able to put down!

Our Town is a boggling play that will leave your head spinning. The layers are always pulling back as you try and find the reality that the you are in. Is the stage manager a stage manager or an almighty puppet master of the play? It tells the story of a girl who dies in her home town and how she deals with it.
