The Marvels

I didnt know what to expect with this book, having never seen anything quite like it before. I soon found myself gripped by the story told in illustrations, which were outstanding. You need to keep your wits about you as the story goes through several generations of the family and it is easy to lose track. The written story was less successful for me. I found the twist rather disappointing and the character of the Uncle unbelievable. The final illustrated ending also confused me, until I read an online review which explained it! Very original and you cannot dispute the quality of the illustrations, but as a complete book, it didnt quite work for me.
