Dislikes: Humidity, vodka, people who don't use turn signals, dog-earred library books, the 90's X-Men cartoon, and doing dishes.
I freakin' love Rob Guillory! This book is weird and twisted just like Chew. My favorite parts are the little jokes he puts in the background of panels. Be sure to read every poster, sign, etc.
Its finally here, the book that I haven't shut up about since I first read it a few months ago. The subject matter alone is fascinating, but the writing is absolutely beautiful. Just read it, you'll love it!
I really loved this character-driven space romp! It wasn’t all action, it really was like taking a trip with a crew of friends. I love the way Chambers talked about the interaction between the different species and the importance of not being speciesist. There’s always plenty to be learned in well done sci-fi and we could all learn a little about how to treat our fellow sapients from this book.
Shaun Tan has a way of breaking your heart and putting it back together in his beautifully illustrated books. Cicada is no exception.
This book was a fun mash-up of Almost Famous and VH1's Behind the Music. If you lover Fleetwood Mac, piles of cocaine, and bad life choices set against a 70's rock n' roll backdrop, then this is the book for you.
This book has everything required for a good story: magic mirrors, enchantments, fair folk, and a sassy book.
I love this book and found myself laughing out loud a lot. I can't wait to read the other three in the series. After all, an evil alien warlord bookseller must always finish what she starts.
