An interesting little graphic novel with a great style and the beginnings of a great idea: the story follows a family that lives near a lagoon, where a creature is known to lure people under the water with its siren song. Carré primarily makes use of implied sounds and rhythms, rather than words, to tell her story, but to be honest I feel a little let down by both the technique and the story itself. She tries to say too much with too little, too quickly, and despite a wonderful and evocative art style, she only ends up touching the surface of it all.
