I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
So, I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I knew at least one of the surprise twists to this book. I read it somewhere accidentally.
This was so good, however, and I got so swept up, I forgot I knew it, which never happens with me. Usually once I've been spoiled, that's it, I know. I totally forgot. And I read the surprise twist, and I went holy shit! I didn't see that coming!
And then I thought about it, and realized I had, forgot about it because the story was that engrossing, and was still shocked as hell by the surprise twist that wasn't really a surprise. But was anyway.
So, I can totally understand why this is so well loved. Also, it looks like I needed to come back after two issues. I see myself blowing through the rest of this in the next hour or so.
