The story is split up into the four seasons. The characters at first are independent and it's not known what connection they'll have throughout the story. There is even a wordless story that begins each season, and that even finds a way to tie in.
The characters range from a young girl with a camera who takes candid photos of people and writes stories about them, a divorced man, a retired politician. The events range from a field trip, to a hike up a mountain to a protest against the building of an airport.
I really liked the art style. The story is good too, but can feel a bit vague and disconnected. Things begin to make sense evenutally, but at 336 pages, it takes a while.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Papercutz, NBM Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
The writing is beautiful. It isn’t just short amounts of text on the pictures but whole short stories in between the illustrations, paragraphs of poetic musings. It’s also a great book for me because I’m a huge Smiths fan and there are lyrics spread through it that I can hear the song perfectly with the scene. We follow a few different characters but we learn little things about all of them along the way, even if some are just in pictures. The illustrations are magnetic and beautiful with a large amount of detail. They also range in style and tone all throughout the novel but each one works well together to become a whole year and cycle. It’s truly a stunning book and I’m glad I was able to experience it.
