I've been hearing a lot about it.

I read it at the library when I locked myself out of my apartment one time. It's good, if a bit sad.

We read it in my book club. Everyone liked it but no one really had much to discuss with regards to the book. This is basically how the discussion went:

"Good story."
"The art was great."
"Very straightforward plot."
"..."
"Anything else?"
"..."
"OK, let's go to the bar."

In conclusion, I'm glad I read it but it really didn't make much of an impression.

The artwork and panel transitions are breathtaking, some of the best I've ever seen. The story packs a punch, but it's melodramatic and a little immature emotionally. If I was a teenager, it would be my favorite comic ever. As is, it's worth a read.

I read it about 6 months ago. I thought it was great.

Thought it was a little pretentious, honestly. Though it's excellent at socking you in the gut with emotional baggage.
