Hello, little bears!!
I have a few (a lot of them, really) ARCs to review, so you’ll at least see one review per week here and on my YouTube channel (The Book Dreamer’s Alley) for the ones granted to me by NetGalley and just here for those for which I’m part of a blog tour.
First of all I’d like to thank NetGalley and the publisher, Ten Speed Press, for granting me an early copy of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review. I’m sorry for the delay, but my last semester at university was driving me crazy, which is starting to change now because I’m just working on my thesis for the time being.
This is a non-fiction graphic novel about tips to make wiser political decisions, resisting and identifying authoritarianism.
The points are stated clearly, there text included to accompany the illustrations is just what is needed, so it’s not too much or too little.
This was quite an enjoyable experience that allowed the reader to stop and reflect constantly on the points given as a guide and the explanations offered.
Images were stunning, the colour scheme was brilliantly chosen to produce certain emotions and attract attention to the right details. I cannot even put into words how incredible I thought the illustrator, Nora Krug, was. I also loved the illustration style and cannot wait to see more of her job.
I personally agree with every single point stated by the historian Tymothy Snyder and believe everybody should read this to realise how close certain world leaders are from being dictators and act accordingly.
I do recommend this to everyone!
Let me know if you have read this and if you’re interested in reading it. Would love to discuss this.
Hope you’re doing well.
