In this graphic novel we follow the lives of six unconnected characters who will eventually become connected by a horrible act of violence. Before the rockstar, temp, waitress, daughter, crank and autograph forger come together the reader gets to know them a bit and see how relationships begin and how events conspire to put them all in the same place on one fateful night.

I admit a huge part of why I read this book is that is has a fabulous cover. I love the fact that it looks like a tape, although I find myself wondering if some people would even recognize a tape at this point. I saw the book as part of a display at the library and immediately felt a need to check it out. The plot description didn't really go with the cover for me until after I read it. Then I kind of saw each character's chapters as different sections of a mix tape and then it kind of all came together for me.

I really enjoyed watching the relationships that developed especially Ray and Lily, Pheobe and her father and Caprice's two relationship debacles. (Also a huge shout out to Caprice's boss Frank I believe it was who told off Caprice's ex in such a phenomenal and kick butt way without ever being an overt dick.) There are definitely times when I wanted to strangle Caprice too. I think she was the character that I liked the most because she made me the most crazy, although both of her bosses neither of which was one of the characters being followed were close seconds.

The graphic novel counts down as a way of building suspense although you kind of know from the description that something big is going to happen. I thought it was a decent way to build suspense and I kind of kick myself b/c I assumed that the obvious was what was going to happen and that certainly wasn't the case. (Was also kind of excited that it was my least favorite character that was involved in the violent incident.) ( )

Six strangers lives become intertwined more and more until the disappointing conclusion of the book. I like stories told from varying perspectives, and I think Alex Robinson did a good job with this. Each character has a chapter devoted to them in the 6 chapter cycle. Some of stories are much more fleshed out than others. I really liked Caprice's storyline- by far the most realistic, and Steve, the fan descending into further madness. Nick, the pawn shop forger, had the least interesting storyline, and it felt like the least amount of time was spent on his story. All of the characters have a crucial role, but I think it would have worked better with one or two less. The end was what I predicted from the beginning, so that was a little disappointing, because the events leading up are so interesting. I got wrapped up in the characters so much I couldn't put it down. Overall, an interesting and well-told story. ( )

Robinson’s dialogue, whether conversational or internal monologue, is his strength. It reads easily and smoothly because it’s realistic, yet it’s made up of distinct voices.
