    Extraordinary literature

    This graphic novel is considered by many to be the best ever written, and for good reason. However, it is anything but an easy read. I myself could barely make heads or tails of the first thirty pages or so--but once you learn Ware's writing style, the pages basically turn themselves. The intertwined plots of the two Jimmy Corrigans are at once touching, melancholy, and infinitely relatable. Ware's art varies from minimalistically simple to extravagantly detailed, and always beautiful. If you're willing to read a book that actually forces you to think about what's going on, this book will give you deeper shades of meaning each time you read it. Absolutely astounding.

    It was not very good.

    This book was not my taste of books but I had to read it for a project. It was very confusing. I did not understand what was happening until the end. The author was telling the story of Jimmy Corrigan then it went to his father and when he grew up. The book did not flow well at all. Jimmy and his father looked exactly the same so you never new who was talking.

    Possibly the most stunning graphic novel to date.

    I don't think enough good things can be said about this 'novel'. It's as brilliant as it is sad. But there are times when you'll crack a smile. If you've ever been lonely, Jimmy is instantly relatable. Ware can not-only weave an intricate and incredible storyline, but is also an amazing artist.

    Virtuosic Storytelling

    Don't believe what Chris Ware might say about himself -- he is a gifted writer. This is to say nothing about his stunning talents as an artist and storyteller. This seven-years-in-the-making compilation of Jimmy Corrigan's story is both depressing and profound. It shouldn't be missed. <br><br> Chris Ware transports the reader not only to another era, but into the middle of a man's web of pain, solitude and confusion. But he does so in such a delicate, meticulous manner; it's the perfect use of the comic book medium. <br><br> Beautiful, poignant, sublime. I am a more complete person having read these comics.
