it was amazing

Recommended for: Everyone (mature readers)

This book has made me think about everytime I, or anyone else, has ever said, "I'm not into politics." Although I haven't used that phrase since a time when I was too ignorant to really understand what I was saying, this book made me realize that no one should ever - regardless of age or whatever - feel that politics should be left up to everyone else.

I haven't read many graphic novels, so I can't comment too much on the graphics or anything like that. I only know what I like, so I can say that I felt that it was well-written and not too wordy, and I felt the graphics flowed well with the story. I also felt like the story wasn't rushed, which is something I've noticed with other graphic novels. The only problem I had was that it was sometimes (as I believe another reviewer stated) difficult at times to distinguish one dark-haired male character from another because of a lack of detail in some of the pictures.

I definitely feel like this is something that every person should read at least once, regardless of if you're into graphic novels or not. Living in a democratic nation, I think that sometimes people tend to take for granted things that people of the past have worked so hard for, and I feel this book would be a good reminder of everything we could be giving up and getting ourselves into everytime the phrase "I'm not into politics" is said.
