I confess I just wasn’t sure about this one at first (or second, or third, or even at the midpoint). The artwork is messy and chaotic, which is interesting, but occasionally confusing. Then as the story progressed, things sort of started to come together, until the point at which the book punched me in all the feels.
The story didn’t end up being what I expected, or even what I thought I wanted, but I’m glad I stuck it out and plugged onward. My only other struggle was that with the messy artwork style, which definitely is appropriate to the story, it was sometimes hard for me to tell characters apart or identify side characters, who often aren’t as distinctive/memorable.
