Swallow Me Whole

Her amidst schizophrenia obsessive compulsive disorder family breakdown animal telepathy misguided love and the tiniest hope that everything will someday make senseDeliberately paced delicately drawn and drenched in shadows Swallow Me Whole is a landmark achievement for Nate Powell and a suburban ghost story that will haunt readers long after its final pag I didn t like this book It was really confusing and hard to follow partially because the characters were not introduced in a clear way in the beginning and partially because the drawings were so muddled it was often hard to tell what you were looking at Some of that was stylistic choices I guess this is what it feels to be schizophrenic but really it just made the book confusing to the point where it was hard to care about any of the characters because you never really knew what was going on At some point it just feels pretentious and pomo and I m not really into the whole weird for the sake of being weird thing I don t recommend

Nate Powell À 3 characters

Ch for a master pattern to make sense of one's unravelingIn his most ambitious book to date Nate Powell uietly explores the dark corners of adolescence not the clichd melodramatic outbursts of rebellion but the countless tiny moments of madness the vague relief of medication and mixed blessing of family ties As the story unfolds two stepsiblings hold toget This book is deep and difficult for me to write about as I m not sure I got the whole thing I ll make an attempt at my impressions Two siblings both have psychological problems The girl Ruth is the main character and suffers from delusions paranoia schizophrenia and OCD while her brother seems to suffer on a lesser degree from delusions They also have their grandmother living at home with them as she is dying and also delusional The book follows the girl s descent into madness while those around her stand by and do nothing She recognizes her mind is different and so does her brother together they can talk to each other about it We watch as Ruth starts out trying to make her way through each day until in the end her illnesses smother and bury who she once wasThe book is done is black and white with a lot of the pages having a black background Many scenes have word bubbles with writing so tiny or scribbled it is unreadable these are the background voices that Ruth doesn t hear in her world The story is intense and yet there is no real plot The book tries to capture a feeling in words and pictures I sort of enjoyed the book Probably up to the mid point I was enjoying it but honestly I didn t see the point of the story I have mental health issues myself some of which were mirrored in the book and the book seemed to just be saying to me Look this is what it feels like to go crazy Perhaps others will get out of it I recommend the book for higher aged teens because of the swearing which includes the f word and a small amount of teenage sex

    I had such high hopes for a longer comic by Nate Powell but this book really fell short of my expectations A lot of the story was hard to follow which may have been somewhat intentional since the story deals with schizophrenia but unfortunately that doesn't make it any less difficult to understand If he had done a better job moving between external narrator and character experience I would have had tolerance

    This is another work of Powell's I've had for awhile but I've just been lax in getting to it And shame on me for waiting as this is truly an engaging story I'm familiar with Powell's historically based comics tha
