A clumsy review.
Well, this is my 38. CV-review already. Cool.
What I like.
The art is very simple, scetchy and nice.
It`s a purple & white-comic.
The combination of the art and words is so simple, actually, that you can read it fairly quickly. Or at least, it feels like that. This is usually a sign of great storytelling, and it isn`t any different in this books case.
It`s very crudely and cutely realistic. I like that, because it`s honest. That`s the dominate reason as to why I like auto-biographies (This is an auto biography, right? It sure feels like one.). That`s the dominate reason to almost anyone to like auto-biographies.
This has alot of sex. There are complete strips dedicated to sex. But porn it isn`t. It There isn`t any pretending in it. But, if all that sex stops you from reading it, that`s too bad. Actually, it`s more than that. It`s a darn shame.
Every story in this book is just a few pages. Each has 6 panels. There`s 224 comic-pages in this. That`s ALOT of story.
It`s a pocket book. Pocket books are really nice.
The writing is sad and humorous, and it never feels pushed.
The characters are enjoyable. Jeff is a sad person (or maybe not that much, I don`t know), who apologises alot. Sometimes when it`s not necessary. Theresa is a bit mean, fragile and happy person.
What I don`t like.
At some points of the story it`s not clear, when something has happened. There`s not too many of those parts, though.
It`s repetitive. It doesn`t hurt the story, because it`s not too repetitive.
What I think you should do about it.
Buy it! If you`re not sure, loan it, and give it a go.
