Two many books already started but have to add another one!
I‘ve been saving this one to read on my holiday in America @squirrelbrain and so far I‘m loving it.
Having a coffee and reading a bit before more sightseeing in Washington 💙
This book had me all over the place!
For one, it reminded me of what I was a kid and, too, read a big old dictionary. (I should look into having it repaired, it‘s in pretty rough shape!)
But I found it a little hard to fully connect with the main characters, the twins, as it was a short book and it covered their entire lifetime as well as various family members. At times I was ready to move on, yet found myself tearing up towards the end.
Review: Blackout by James Goodman, 2011, is a comic book style picture book about a city wide blackout that rings the whole city and family closer together. It uses minimal words but the pictures tell a story
Blurb: The set up of the story makes it very interesting and a fun read. Certain pages look like a comic book and there are a lot of speech bubbles from characters as well
Quote: “Everyone went back to normal...But not everyone likes normal.“
This is classified as a historical mystery and it does fit that categorization, but it is also a semi cozy mystery. The crimes are deadly and the reasons behind them are shocking (for the time), but the main detective is an outcast from “society”, so it feels cozyesque, if that makes sense. It is a quick read and I did enjoy it, although this is not my usual genre. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
