Beverly by Nick Drnaso | Book Review

★★☆☆☆
April 8th

I didn’t like this book. I don’t know if it was that I didn’t get it and it went way over my head, or there was no point, but I found the whole thing very confusing and lacking in any type of point.

I liked the illustration style, I enjoyed that it was different vignettes and scenes, but there either needed to be a unifying thread, or no unifying thread. Instead there was a weird mix of some things being connected and some not. The first story having little bearing on any of the future ones. All of the people in these were kind of jerks or treated other people like jerks and there was no repercussions.

This book left me feeling terrible, which after Nimona was kind of a let down. I’m not one to harp on things I didn’t like, so I’ll leave it at that. This wasn’t for me.
