What a hot mess!
Reviewed in the United States on December 5, 2019
I bought this book as a part of a 'buy two, get one free' offer. I had never heard of this series of books before. What got my attention was the clever title. I bought it in the hope that the book would be as clever as the title. As a free book, I definitely paid too much. Unlike other one star reviews, I found nothing wrong with the book's construction, the printing, or the text. The colors are great, the binding is solid, the text is clear and readable. I have not read the other books in the series so I don't have the advantage of a historical background, but the story line comes across fairly obviously. I guess I wasn't expecting the level of dysfunctional relationships that I found in this graphic novel. I don't find the problematic relationships illustrated in the stories very interesting. Incredibly neurotic story lines. I don't find the characters to be funny, I find them to be pathetic. I enthusiastically say: NOT RECOMMENDED.
