5,000 km Per Second pulled my heart in so many different directions.
I saw the cover in a bookstore and was intrigued!
What I admire most about 5,000 km Per Second is the realistic flow of events and honest emotion that drive the characters and ultimately the story. The characters could be called "flawed," but really they are just human, making mistakes like we do. This isn't a fairytale. The story flows the way real life can and does.
The art is beautiful and conveys each scene's mood really well. I found the colors chosen for the illustrations to affect and reflect how I felt while reading, which made the story more powerful.
As much as I admire the storyline for being more realistic rather than cliché, the ending did leave me a bit melancholy, confused and unfulfilled. I yearned for a more uplifting conclusion, but I respect the outcome for what it is. The story felt true to life in the sense that the characters make the best decisions they possibly can at the time and after the fact they may feel regretful or have questions they can never answer, but no matter what they have to keep on living.
This story had a unique impact on me. I recommend picking it up!
