I couldn't get into the story. I think part of it was that I didn't enjoy the art style. The other part was that I kind of had no clue what was going on basically the entire time. The ending also made me say "what?" out loud and left me unsatisfied. Not bad, just not for me. ( )

Got this book randomly in the mail. For free! Pretty exciting.

It was not what I was expecting though. It's a comic book. Drawn really strange. I didn't like the drawings.

It wasn't that interesting of a story really. The last quarter of it was good. When you finally got to learn about the mermaid and where she came from. That's what I wanted.

I wanted a story about a mermaid. Not all the back story about a sad pathetic captain and his horny friend. ( )

I liked the story - not sure I want to spend much time reading graphic novels. For me, they're an acquired taste. It was an interesting experiment though. ( )

Well, damn it, this book made me feel like a dummy. I followed the entire story - even liked it - up until the last quarter or so. The tale turned frantic and somehow I got lost.

I'm going to go back and re-read the last 40 pages, maybe I can figure out where the story (not me!) went wrong. ( )
