Raven Girl by Audrey Niffenegger
I’m still not quite sure if I really like the works of Audrey Niffenegger. I read The Time Traveler’s Wife as many others did which I found fine. I read Three Incestuous Sisters as a result and found myself more indifferent to her work. I do appreciate the use of art and writing together.
This is basically an adult picture book except not inappropriate or gratuitous. It’s still strange because it features a man and a raven whom fall in love and their resulting daughter. I actual don’t mind this oddity, rather like this strangeness and the art that goes with it. The ending felt a bit abrupt though. I did like it overall better than the last Niffenegger graphic book, but not a classic by any means.
