This review is from: Building Stories (Hardcover)
Chris Ware's collection of stories which are all connected to each other and which are presented in a wide variety of different forms (hardcover- and softcover books is a true masterpiece. As the title of the overall theme describes, the reader can decide the order of reading him- or herself. There is no numbering of the items, so you can chose whatever you want as a beginning or starting point. Whatever the order is, you will not be disappointed, since one identifies with the anti-heroine and -heroes at once. You should not read all the parts in one go, though. The intensity od the story-telling is so great that you can hardly bear to read and watch the principal figure's life for more than an hour per day. One must try to digest the misery, the gruesome facts of the everyday's life of and the blows of destinyof an average person which takes some time to do. After finishing all the "Building stories"-stories, you realize that you have witnessed and lived a very special reading experience which has nothing to do with the big mass of comics that are published quickly for a mass market. This work of art is very much worth reading. You will have a little bit different look at life in general and also at your own life and the ones of your fellow neighbours.
