An interesting short story/graphic novel about readers. From the "After Words":

"...a story about a woman's secret life as a reader. As I worked it also became a story about the claims that books place on their readers, the imbalance between our inner and outer lives, a cautionary tale of the seduction of the written word. It became of vision of the afterlife as a library, of heaven as a funky old camper filled with everything you've ever read."

I think I would have given this five stars if the illustrations had wowed me as much as the text. Niffenegger illustrated it herself, and although she did a pretty good job, my graphic novel standards are pretty high.
