Bad Habits: A Love Story (2008)
3.66 of 5 Votes: 3
Wow. Carmencita Gutierrez Alonzo moved to New York City. She lives in squalid, communal housing near the freeway underpass. I like her character, but she scares me a little.Through a deep haze of coke and hallucinogens, she ponders her bisexuality and her inability to form meaningful relations...
�die� ganze Welt von Mad Men [Ein Offizielles Mad Men Buch] (2011)
3.82 of 5 Votes: 4
Let me tell y'all something: I found this book on a shelved section in my public library for sale for 25 cents (You can either pay 25 cents per book or $1 for five books) and this was one of the best books I've ever bought for my collection. Man Men addicts (myself included) will adore the hilari...
Captain America by Ed Brubaker, Vol. 3 (2000)
3.47 of 5 Votes: 2
Another great Captain America story from Ed Brubaker, but not as good as the previous volume. Volume 3 is not as kind to new readers or casual Marvel fans as Volume 2 was. While Brubaker continues to skillfully weave in exposition so that the reader does not feel lost, I still had to look up a fe...
The Li'l Depressed Boy, Vol. 1: She Is Staggering (2011)

Remember that dire time about 10 years ago when indie movies were everywhere? Movies like Napoleon Dynamite and Garden State ponged up movie screens everywhere with their emo, precious crap, and Zooey Deschanel built her career on the backs of breeches ’n ’dungaree wearing hipsters with curly mus...
The Unwords: Exposing The Dishonest Language of a Culture in Decline (2013)

Wow.....0000000000000000000000000000000001 stars.This book aimed for profundity and landed on naïveté. The writing reads like the vague ramblings of an 18 year old who believes his mind has been opened, all of the posers have been exposed, and that this 18 year old alone has all of the answers to...

Magic Barrel (2014)
3.92 of 5 Votes: 2
Lena Finkle is a Soviet Jewish emigre who keeps explaining to bewildered Americans that she is Jewish, not Russian, even though she was born and raised in Moscow (a distinction instantly recognizable to Soviet Jews and meaningless to everyone else). And, as a Soviet Jew transplanted first to Ariz...
The End of the Fucking World (2013)
3.65 of 5 Votes: 4
I have finally read it, after waiting several months to finally make the purchase. I heard so much about TEOTFW and all the hype yet I really had no idea what the story was about. It surprised me. Is this a book about a sociopath and his extremely co-dependent girlfriend? Yes on the surface i...
Superman/Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Power Couple (2014)
3.89 of 5 Votes: 5
I'm not a fan of this relationship but the book kicks off really well in showing the two balancing their work and their new feelings (I think I'd have loved them doing the duo as a World's Finest-type team). But then they bring in Zod, who is a very over-used villain and nobody ever does anything...
Here I Am (2000)
4.05 of 5 Votes: 5
In Kim’s almost entirely wordless picture book, loose, informal line work perfectly mirrors the uncertainty of a young boy moving to an unknown land with his family. Feeling anxious and alone in his new country, it isn’t until the boy discovers a seed from home in his coat pocket that he begins t...

Tumor (2010)

Despite some opinion, reading a graphic novel via the Kindle reader on a tablet is enjoyable (imho).From Goodreads: From the Harvey Award-nominated creative team of Elk's Run comes Tumor, the critically acclaimed sensation that was the first graphic novel to debut exclusively on the Kindle E-Boo...
Kari (2008)
3.7 of 5 Votes: 5
I find the artwork beautiful. The narrative's opening section,"The Double Suicide," pays homage to Kahlo's"Two Fridas" and concludes with an allusion to Wyeth's "Christina's World." Patil's drawings range from stark lines and soft charcoal fills to the drawing on photographs. There are a handful ...
De Vuelta a tu Amor (2000)
4.34 of 5 Votes: 3
A mi me sobra la primera mitad del libro. No conseguí empatizar con el enamoramiento de los protagonistas, eran demasiado empalagosos xD, tan dependientes el uno del otro sin ton ni son que me es antinatural. Después llego el secuestro, con toda la tensión, angustia, el drama y ahí... Uau!! Me en...
