Murmur – not a review

Murmur (Penguin Graphic Fiction S.)Murmur by Lorenzo Mattotti
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is not really a review but a ramble.

Murmur was the first graphic novel I ever bought. Got it from a library, kept borrowing it until I decided it was indeed worth having. Ordered it secondhand from Amazon – my first Amazon purchase!

I go back to it every now and again to feel awe, horror, and sheer joy. A mesmerizing book. I ended up ordering Fires.
