I went to the doctor yesterday, and of course he was an hour late for my appointment, plus I was tortured with a bad news show in his waiting room. So I sat surreally listening to reports about what is wrong with our health care system.
I never leave home without a book, so it was good to have the graphic novel, Air with me. Graphic Novels are great for waiting rooms. Just enough words to read comfortably, while being distracted, the illustrations were perfect. I would highly recommend this graphic novel.
The heroine is an acrophobic airline stewardness. There are anti-terrorist terrorists. There’s romance that goes unresolved. A very interesting premise that a country can get lost because it’s been taken off the maps and all the people forgotten.
Okay, why did I pick up this book? The illustrations just pop off the page. Plus everything looks light and airy ( pun intended). Some graphics just look so depressing from the opening page, but this one looks fun and romantic, and intriguing. Start reading and you find a lost country, a lost lover, and very strange military types trying to take over everything. And what’s the deal with the aztec air travel? The novel just whirs along and soon you will get to the end and want more. It certainly looks like the opening is there for a continuation.
It’s a great summer read. It makes me want more from G. Willow Wilson and M.K. Perker.
