The Hunting Accident by David L Carlson, illustrated by Landis Blair

This story was FASCINATING and I haven’t stopped talking about it to people today.  The parallels between Charlie and his father made for an interesting manner of storytelling and Matt’s story was so interesting.  I knew very little about Leopold and Loeb before this book and now I want to learn everything I can about them.  Landis Blair’s art perfectly conveyed the story and added a fascinating layer to everything.  There is something strange and magical about a graphic novel about a blind person.

Sometimes, though, I felt like the poetry segments and the art got a little confusing, breaking me out of the story.  There were pages that were just lost on me.  These moments didn’t feel like they were from the same book as the rest of the beautiful story.
