I ordered from Brazil and Amazon surprise me again with their shipping !
It came in time and perfectly packed!
A year ago, the vast majority of the world's population walked into the sea never to return. The survivors remaining on a remote island have been scraping by when two people unexpectedly return, but they are obviously changed. The book goes on to tell the story of what caused the mass migration while showing how the survivors deal with the return of the loved ones they thought lost.
There is clearly an environmentalist bent to the story, although I felt like the bias was not as heavy in the first portion of the book. It never got to the point that it felt unreadable or overly agenda bent. The reactions of the characters to the events around them help the book shine. Their thoughts and actions felt natural.
Which brings me to the art. A lot of the drawings of the people felt lacking, almost as if they were not fully realized. This probably stood our more because the creatures and the landscapes are extremely detailed. The creatures in particular look like they could have come from a Hiyao Miyazaki film.
There is some nudity and violence. I didn't find it particularly graphic though. It would probably be suitable for a high school student to read.
