So I’m here to talk about something a little bit out of the ordinary- a graphic novel!
Blankets was a gripping, heartfelt coming of age story. It was beautiful, it was human, it was sincere and excellently crafted. I was immediately hooked by the effortless storytelling technique and the honest, real characters.
Blurb: Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith.
The art style is absolutely beautiful, and it manages to work through some pretty complicated feelings about faith and family in a nuanced way. The book was 600 pages, but it was so good that I read it in one sitting, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Final rating- 5/5
Thanks for reading my blog, and until next time, happy reading 🙂
