Murder Mysteries

Last night, I reread Neil Gaiman's Murder Mysteries.

Each time I read this graphic novel (up to 3 now), I find myself more uncertain about my solution to the "mysteries." I think that is a combination of growing older (therefore being less inclined to think I know everything there is to know) and of having finally taken a GOOD literature class.. one which forced me to evaluate and re-evaluate works.

Of course, my boyfriend gave me his view which sounded spot-on. Then again, sometimes I'm still inclined to think that HE knows everything there is to know. I guess I'm not that old, after all.

As for the graphic novel itself, Gaiman has again successfully paired up with a graphic artist to weave a fantastical story which leaves the reader feeling a slight buzz of mysticism. The story is two-fold, yet united. The story of Creation; the story of murder. The story of the Creation of murder. An exploration of victims and villians, and top-notch Gaiman.
