Hinges Book One: Clockwork City - Meredith Mcclaren

Hinges Vol. 1


I really quite liked this graphic novel, although I'm not even sure I can explain why exactly. I liked the artwork a lot, it's quite simple but it works great for the story. The story itself was a bit confusing, there isn't that much dialogue and no explanations were given in this book that would explain the somewhat peculiar world Orio lives in.


But mostly, I really enjoyed the novel's feeling, It kind of reminded me, I'm not sure why, of the Spirited Away movie.


I would definitely read the next book in the series, I want to know how the story continues but also learn more about the world. Hinges started out as a webcomic, which I'll also be checking out.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
