My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
I've often said that I'm not a very visual person, especially when it comes to picture books/comics/manga. I had no problem with The Arrival though because there are no words to compete with the images.
This is my second time reading The Arrival, and I could probably read it 100 more times and see something new with every reading. It's really an amazing book. Some of Shaun Tan's best work.
