The storytelling in this graphic novel is lovely, but I gotta say, the thing that stood out to me the absolute most was the use of color. I have never been drawn to the color choices in graphic novel ever before, as much as I have in this one. It's truly art on every page. Pay attention to the sky. Notice how it changes with the mood. It's really, really well done. 

And it's the only story of its kind that I've read before. I smiled, I cried. The story really worked.

The only thing I didn't much appreciate about the story is...
Spoilerhow underdeveloped the non-men characters are. I understand the choice, because it's from the main character's point of view, but I feel like there could have been more done there to make it feel like the women were really people, who have depth, and aren't just mysterious or surface level characters.
