Finally after so long I've gotten my hands on this series. I've loved Lemire's other works but my library didn't have any of the Sweet Tooth books until this came along recently. Sadly though it's the only one volume! ( )

What in the world did I just read? Maybe I would think that always, or maybe I think that because I am currently working from home because of the pandemic. Who knows. This is a world where a pandemic has whipped out most of the population, and new kids being born, are born with animal features. However, Gus, aka Sweet Tooth, is older than the plague, so what is going on. This is a very bloody book, and while it is a dark fantasy, i truly do think many of the things that happen in this book, would happen in real life if we were hit with a pandemic that kills more than COVID. Say if Ebola gets out in the US. This story is compelling, and the art work is haunting. I had to immediately put the next book on hold at the library. It’s that good.

Very imaginative, but the art is a real barrier for me. ( )
