I liked the concept of this book more than the book itself. The author worked with an illustrator to make her simple journal of a character's loneliness and growth into a multidimensional experience for the reader. At least that's what I think she was going for. I'm a big fan of Nick Bantock's work, so like I said, I liked the concept of this book. Unfortunately, neither the story nor the artwork really delivered. The narrator--though realistic--is consummately unlikable and the drawings do little but expand on the main character's self indulgent moaning.
Fun fact about illustrator Marlena Zuber after the break....
