Bunu iki kez okudum. Onu çok seviyorum.
Yazar, doksanlı Yeni Orleanean'ın hikayelerini altmışlardan Katrina'ya kadar örüyor. Güzel yazı ve şehre ve tarihine bakış. Katrina bölümleri gerçekten insanların nasıl ölüme terk edildiğine dair bir resim veriyor.
Meh. It's the same "world" as "Life As We Knew It" but not as well written and, really, not at all as interesting. I knew it wouldn't be as good but I was hoping it would motivate me to build my food storage, like the other one had. No. Not at all. Not bad, just not great.
I found this book to be very creatively written. The language and style of prose is challenging, but also refreshing and unique. I loved the beautiful graphics that seemed to melt between the pages; I think students would love these graphics and would really be drawn in by them. The story itself was okay. From the start, Gaiman had my attention with the spooky story of Jack going through the house and murdering the family. After that, though, I found it more difficult to stay connected to the characters. The Owenses didn't seem to have much substance to them (pun intended), and Silas, while a significant mentor to Bod, seemed to slip in and out of the picture. I found it hard to connect to any of the characters, probably because their intial decriptions and later developments were not made clear. But, perhaps Gaiman's intention was to create scenes/a setting that was a little hard to visualize/grasp...perhaps he wanted to partially keep us "in the dark."
