Ghost World

Ghost World - Daniel Clowes Daniel Clowes's gorgeous lines and ability to depict a slice of life of a couple of imaginary teenage girls was astounding. Even though they annoyed me to pieces (from the slut-shaming to the always-being-complaining-about-anything-and-anyone to the really mean prank they pulled on that guy) I could enjoy the story and have a few laughs with the character's witty and sarcastic remarks. It ended where it should, not too late, not too soon. The only reason I don't give more stars to this is because: a) they effin' annoyed me to pieces and b) after reading things like Morning Glories and American Vampire I can't really give this a 4. Maybe a 3.5, if GoodReads allowed it.P.S.: Going to watch the movie soon. I'm hoping it'll be a better experience.
