A serious literature masterpiece
Boring, tedious, dull, and too long. Drab artwork, mostly in tiny panels, very hard (or impossible) to read text. Uninteresting story, unlikeable characters.
Perhaps my favorite graphic novel. And, dang son... that artwork. At times you'll feel like you're reading schematics or blueprints more than a comic book. So genius. But it's not a happy book by any means, though. Don't read this is you have depression issues--seriously. Ware captures the darker side of human emotion perfectly, but you might walk away thinking "It's terrible to be alive."
A masterpiece - a simply incredible read with the feeling that you are unfurling something special as you turn the pages.
I don't get the title "The Smartest Kid on Earth" Should have been "36 year old virgin"
I can't really recommend this. I found it too long and boring but on The other hand the Graphic Art was Great. It seemed to be a partial experimental exercise in methods to display story information with graphic sequences.
One of my coworkers really loves this book so I read it and really did not love it. It's just not my type of story, but if you like painful and awkward real life stories this is your book. The artwork and attention to detail are the parts I enjoyed the most.
Very intense, though I found it a bit difficult to get into at first.
Beautiful pages and a long story spanning generations. Chris Ware is a genius.
I guess we all make choices as to how we want to live, right?
