    "While the Book Thief is an excellent book, and one that someone definitely should read, it wasn't quite what I was looking for. I wanted something along the lines of the Avengers where Thanos wants to court actual Death as a person, which this book did not portray as one. Otherwise I would recommend it to someone."

    "I read this book a couple of times, and I have to say that the second time around was more enjoyable than the first. It is a graphic book from start to finish. It is weird, engaging, surreal, and captivating. It blends myth, fantasy, and DC universe together."
