# 17 The Night Bookmobile

The Night Bookmobile

Audrey Niffenegger

This is a very, very short graphic novel which seems to be made to look like a young child's picture book. It is clear, however, that this is definitely a book for adults, as it touches on some very complicated, dark themes.

How could I not love a book about a mysterious book mobile that appears at random in the night, and whose only collection consists of every book a person has ever read?

I defintely did love it, but even so, it left me feeling a bit...disturbed and off-kilter. It may be because I felt like a 5-yr-old sitting with a picture book open on my lap, while at the same time, the book becomes very dark and a bit morbid.
