I've never read anything by Thompson before (another Library Journal find) so it was a little funny to read this autobiographical account of a European book tour. It's a lovely graphic novel with portraits of the people he meets in France and an account of a side trip to Morocco. Now I'm curious and want to check out his other books. (June 29, 2005) ( )

Love his drawing style. Really good. Fun, light read but didn't hold my attention all that well. ( )

Now I'm envying Craig Thompson, jet lag, diarrhea or no. I was left with a vivid image of a trip, especially to Morocco. I read it all in one sitting this afternoon at my local library and its comparable to just having awoken from a dream, perhaps a stronger sensation than what I've experienced after some actual holidays. Craig knows a lot of nice people. My what camaraderie and refinement! Lucky man to have his publishing companies foot the bill. Lucky readers to have him document it so interestingly. ( )

It really is a journal of his 3 months travel through Europe and Morocco while promoting his graphic novel Blankets and studing for something new. It contains a recollection of his steps though his art, it's beautifuly made and you get to know a little bit more about the author. Although he was alone when he wrote this I felt like I wanted to be there to share his company and all the while I was travelling along with him anyway. Good reading. ( )

With over 200 pages, there are copious illustrations to examine in detail and ponder the hands and mood that created them. Travel affects the mind in so many ways, and it’s a pleasure to be part of Thompson’s journey.
