This lucky little book is part of Spacedog's Manga/Graphic novels bookbox! :D

This is a VERY involved storyline. Not a quick read by any shake of the stick! lol

I found it particularly intriguing, as it's all taking place in Australia and the book I think is by an Australian. :)

So a new perspective on how things were during the war. I can't remember if it's talking about WW I or WWII but I think it's the first war.

But like I said, it's detailed and involved and allows time to get to know the characters. It's not a very appealing life to me, but it's interesting to see how people lived during that time in Austrialia. It's not the greatest graphic novel but I'm not sorry I read it. :)

(you might need to do a few push up to have the strength to hold the behemouth up though! lol)

I found this a very interesting account of Australian life during WWII. The different opinions on the war and the impacts it was making on the day to day life were often new to me, as most WWII stories seem to focus on European and American settings. There were some similarities, like racial and national paranoia leading to virtual imprisonment for the unlucky targeted groups, and some differences, such as the lack of concern for direct attacks on the character's homeland. There was also a lot of comparison with WWI and mentions of continuing effects, which I feel like I haven't seen very often despite the two wars being quite close together.

I liked the straightforward art style and the smooth pacing made this large book feel surprisingly short, but found it hard to tell some of the characters apart.
