“The cartoonist, best known for the Scott Pilgrim series, delivers one of the most enjoyable reads I’ve had all year with this magical graphic novel. I dare you to not read it all in one sitting.”—Whitney Matheson, USA Today
“Seconds arrives with high expectations, and it meets them all, delivering the style and humor of [Bryan Lee] O’Malley’s past works with greater emphasis on mood, detail, and complex character relationships.”—The A.V. Club
“Richly imagined and vibrantly drawn, Seconds is a funny, surprising, and enchanting read.”—Publishers Weekly
“In Seconds, Bryan Lee O’Malley plays the angst of youth against the fabric of a larger epic. In doing so, he enriches both. A great ride!”—Guillermo del Toro

The story was sweet and engaging. It was generally light-hearted and funny though with some darkness toward the end as things spiralled out of control for the protagonist. The one very tiny flaw is that the motive for some of the protagonist's behaviour (ie the ex-boyfriend) was a little clunky ...the relationship came across as no more significant than a subsequent relationship. This made some of the story a little perplexing. BUT this is a tiny gripe and doesn't affect the overall compellability of the story.
While the story ultimately was firmly rooted in fantasy the bases of the emotions and actions taken by the lead character, Katie, we're very much rooted in reality.
I mean, who of us hasn't looked back and wondered, what if?
Why should you read it? Because it's not Scott Pilgrim. It's more mature, and yet just as fun. The issues are different, and yet no less real. It's the issues of the generation, struggling to get things together, to find their footing and have a go (or a second go) at what life has to offer.
Surreal, amusing and honest. Go get a copy.
But what it is is amazing. It was the rare book I felt I needed to keep reading as fast as I could to see where it was going and at the same time I didn't want to read one more word for the fear that it was one word closer to ending. It's more philosophical than SP and less about about relationships and action and more about...well read it yourself.
I read the Kindle version, and it looked fantastic. Clear images and text all the way. If I get the hardcover I'll update this review to include my thoughts on that.
I would definitely recommend this.
