  • Wonderful but missing character and insight

    By YeetMcPickle
    I absolutely loved this book but it missed character and more insight on the characters life and more on what happened.
  • Volumes

    This speaks volumes! I think women should be empowered and be taught how to fight back. We are the ones who have to repopulate this earth... and I wish every woman/girl/mother/grandmother out there flung through a tough time, good health and safe travels!
  • I didn’t care for this

    By sexy09g
    I don’t speak nor do I know how to read Chinese ... However the drawing is very excellent....
  • Not what I expected

    By Mongrel2014
    Ok 3 stars is unfair. The illustrator is a fabulous artist and the drawings are really good if not disturbing at times. I get the gist of the story from the pictures but the writing is not in English. So it’s impossible to rate this. When I picked this up I was expecting a thriller mystery. Looks like it might be. And good too for a graphic novel. But I cannot tell.
