Ghost World

book summary

Ghost World, I would say has been the easiest and yet the most visually interesting of our novels so far. The obvious fact that this book is part comic strip helped make the story flow more. I am a very visual learner and when there are pictures to accompany the words, I tend to pay a lot more attention.
The characters portraying somewhat shallow girls in their early twenties were not the most interesting people yet their dialogue was pretty true to how girls tend to communicate. To me it was just your basic story of two girls who havent quite found out who they are yet and their struggles of how to communicate with people.
I dont really have much else to say about this book because the subject matter wasnt too deep and it was a pretty short novella. It did have the ability to pull me in though so it wasnt that bad of a story.
