Ugh. Thanks for the warning.
Well, for the record Al, I completely agree with you.
Re: comment #5...Touche'. Turn to comment #3 for explanation and blame. How could I confuse Giant Ants with Giant D's? Perhaps I was creating my own adventure....or was it foreshadowing? Anyway...love ya.... keep up the good reviews.
You are the reason I like the Mercury. You make this paper.
@5 ha, fair enough. but I never said it was GIANT...
aww, 4 comments in and you are discouraged? Why? Everyone loves your reviews, you do a great job,so don't despair. Stay don't Go. In all fairness though, from one girl to another, you did bring up the Giant D, first.
aww, three comments in and i hate being a girl writing for the internet again. that's a shame.
I thought the book and illustrations were delightful. A whimsical story within a dark story. Not sure about Ms. Hallett's comment "The ray gun looks like a giant dildo". hmmmm really? seriously? Maybe wishful thinking on her part? Kudos to the mystery writer and especially to the illustrator.
Very unique and fascinating book. I thought the Choose Your Adventure aspect was more ironic symbolically since all the decisions seemed futile against the power of alcoholism. However I still agree that the ultimate choice was between staying and going.
I read this, and found it to be quite moving and well-done. And the art is awesome - the whole thing totally looks like a CYOA.
I BLAME STITCH'N'BITCH FOR HALF THE SHIT WRONG WITH PORTLAND.
WHY IS THERE A TOILET BRUSH ON HIS SHIRT?
My favorite thing to know about artists is "how they pay the rent." I know that Blankets was hugely successful. But was it enough to keep him afloat for six years straight while he made Habibi? Or does he also have to have a side job (or was he doing regular freelance work, like the Menomena art)?
Petty questions... but I'm just curious!
Jane Austen was Regency!
I thought the book was very careful and Madeleine bordered on precious. I feel like the difference between Austen's privileged characters, and Eugenides, is that Austen always gave them a bit of a spine. If they were simpering layabouts then they weren't the protagonists. I felt there were moments when Madeleine was that. She was just a bit too soft to play the lead. Maybe she needed a bit of Flannery O'Conner (Southern Gothic!) added to her.
Jane Austen wasn't a Victorian!
This is amazing, really looking forward to seeing this project come to life!
Does she know that the Khmer Rouge were just about the fiercest anti-capitalists around?
It does have the bullet hole story - unfortunately it doesn't have the bullet hole. It would be cool to shoot my comp copies... in fact, I think I'm going to do that today. It's just a .22 - I can open the book to that 8 page story and shoot them in my basement. If you come to my art show that opens next month I should have shot copies - baring an accident.
I've lived in portland over 12 years...
(I love this review BTW - thank you!)
