Hi there friends,
Guess who’s back with another review? That’s right, it’s me. Anyway, let get on with the show. Here’s what a thought of ‘Displaced Persons’…
I received a free copy of the book by the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A generally good read, enjoyable and a bit of fun. Fair warning though that this comic is most certainly one for adults, it uses a great deal of profanity which is something I don’t tend to enjoy though others may well do. My favourite character was that of the detective who is more than a little strapped for cash and still hires the services of his friend, much to his wife’s horror. The book has a good twist at the end which made it worth the while of reading, though I don’t think I will be reading it again any time soon.
This was quite enjoyable, but there were more than a few problems with my version of the book. To start with, it was blurry which made the text barely legible at some points and made the story confusing to understand. The book also journeys through various time periods introducing lots of new characters and at times it’s hard to remember what is happening to whom, where and when. This is greatly helped by the different colouring of characters who have been ‘displaced’ in the story into another time period/place. It has small titles and timelines indicating when a change in time period is occurring and if not for those I would be extremely confused!
