A staggeringly beautiful story that I will remember for the rest of my life. It's sad but leaves the reader with a sense of hope and contentment, somehow. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Despite a few glaring editorial mishaps - in one instance using the wrong to/too form - I enjoyed Unlikely. The illustrations sell the emotions the characters go through in what plays out as a typical romance gone sour. All the ingredients of your everyday failed relationship - the whirlwind beginning - the descent into the mundane and repetitive - the pushback - and the breakaway. Perfect medicine for the bitter and brokenhearted.

So apparently I like graphic novels. It took me a minute to get used to the drawings and the written text, but I quickly found that it added a lot. So much more could be said with a simple drawing than can be conveyed with pages and pages of text. This one follows Jeff's burgeoning relationship with Allyson, the excitment of a new love, the loss of his virginity at 24 and the eventual falling apart of said relationship. It made me long for that newness myself and then immediately grateful I don't have to go through the inevitibility of reality.
