I was going to give this one 3 stars, because I didn't find the actual act of reading it as enjoyable as I would have liked. But in retrospect this is a pretty great autobiographical comic.This book is as much about memory as anything, which explains the repetition and the occasional disjointed feeling. It's roughly linear, but certain loops keep intruding. As a Queen fan only a few years younger than Dawson, I find it both frustrating and awesome that Freddie himself only appears in 3rd person and in shadow while George Michael gets a crap-ton of scenes real and imagined. Booo, George Michael! :DSometimes uncomfortable for me to read, but only because I'm so sensitive to cringing over adolescent awkwardness. Same reason I have such trouble getting myself to read most realistic YA fiction. ¡Me gusta!
