sentimental, yes. purposely heartbreaking, yes. perhaps over-the-top depressing and not entirely appropriate for children? hell yes. but something about this book has stuck with me through the ages. this was the first book that challenged me emotionally, made me feel scared and worried and powerless. "but i don't want my mommy to grow old and die. i don't care if it's all part of a beautiful cycle. i don't want her to die," i thought. the last step to overcoming grief is acceptance, and the first is denial. i thank this book for sending a powerfully painful but necessary message. people age, their places in life evolve, they replace each other eternally. but love is unchanging and forever. yay.
*Shudder* This is one of the creepiest, weirdest, and most brilliant stories I've ever encountered. Alan Moore essentially made himself an expert on Jack the Ripper (and if you can find this hardbound edition, it usually includes a gigantic index of terms, facts, and inconsistencies that Moore provides so that you, too, become an expert) and every minute of his research is evident in this work.
a beautiful book, the characters just draw you in and you care so much about what will happen to them, one of the best books i have ever read
