Rated 2 out of 5 by from One Soul by Ray Fawkes This book is ambitious to the point of insanity. I was on about page 20 when I set it down and said to my wife "I don't think I can read this". No really. I am not capable of reading like this. But the concept was just so fascinating that I couldn't put it down, even though it was a bitch to get through. 18 characters. 18 panels on each page. 18 time periods. So one panel per spread tells the story of an individual character as their stories intertwine. You need to keep them all straight and within their own chronology as you read and it's HARD. And most of them live fairly miserable unhappy lives. Was it worth it in the end? I'm still not sure. I can't say I liked it. But I can't deny that it is impressive. So I fling this review at the interwebs. Perhaps that is the point, that it is hard and difficult and there are no rewards for the just reader who plows through, only the experience of having done it.
