    CHARACTERS à Flying Couch Flying Couch3 starsNot the best graphic novel I have read It was geared toward 3 generations of women in the same family However there were times that I could not make sense of what was being told not in story form or as an individual page in time I know this book was an explanation of the authors personal story both current and her families past however for me it was very hard to follow and understand Whereas other sections made sense and were easy to follow I will say that the graphic artistry was done well Simple but expre

    CHARACTERS à Flying Couch Flying CouchHow I came to this book a graphic novel of a three generations of women who descended from a Holocaust survivor in Poland was interesting I recently attended a talk of three local psychologists who are children of Holocaust survivors and they each spoke about what those experiences wereare like and how to look at potential resiliencies from such abhorrent and unimaginable trauma and loss This one woman her mother is 94 and still living Her daughter Amy is an artist and took her grandmother’s story of survival and blended their three stories into this workNormally I don’t care for graphic novels They don’t intrigue me But the idea of a graphic novel of a holocaust story did And it is a way to have the granddaughter be able to mak

    CHARACTERS à Flying Couch Flying CouchToo sloppy unstructured and all over the place for my taste both in story and art Just when I'd start to get interested in a section it would abruptly end and the story would go flying off in a whole different direction never to return leaving me unsatisfied I don't feel the stories of the grandmother mother and daughter were interwoven well enough to gel into a singular work I'd have preferred separate volumes about the daughter and grandmother with stronger focus on each The mother sort of falls through the cracks and didn't leave much of an impression on me
