I read this as single issues. Basically, it's beautiful but I have no idea what's going on. It's weird because it feels both slowly paced and overstuffed/confusing at the same time. I'm going to keep going with it and hope I can find something to hoo ...more

I love John Darnielle's writing. In this book he creates the most vivid character, and really digs into ideas about what music can mean to a person, and the consequences of wielding power over vulnerable people. His writing can really make a reader g ...more

Yikes. This was really not good. Simplistic superhero story, ham-fisted moralizing about keeping cats as indoor pets, nothing really grabbed me. I'll stick with Margaret Atwood's non-graphic novels for now.

I was prepared to really love this book, but it fell short. For one, it's an absolutely punishing narrative. Which, okay, deal with it and look this square in the eyes, because slavery was atrocious, to put it mildly. It was obviously very thoroughly ...more

There's a lot to like here, a cool setup and worldbuilding, some great characters, but the plot felt pretty rushed and I kind of wished it could have been a full length book to fully develop the story.

I am also torn by using words that exist to repre

I need to not listen to these when my husband is in earshot because I think they make him think less of me. And I don't really blame him?

So little even happened in this book, and like the first one, it ends in the weirdest place, which is the most cu
