The story is constructed in such a way that the reader can understand and sympathize with the characters. Each action comes from a believable place and brings out a concerned response from the reader.
I heard about this graphic novel awhile ago and searched for it in nearly every brick and mortar store I went into. I finally bought it online because I really wanted to read it (and it pushed me into the free shipping category). This story was definitely worth the effort and the wait.
“In this our springtime there is no better, there is no worse.
Blossoming branches burgeon as they must.
Some are long, some are short.”
Stay with life.
