Bodies - Tula lotay, Phil Winslade, Si Spencer

I requested this graphic novel because of the awesome cover. Then came in all the one star reviews from my friends and I started to get afraid of starting it.


Four detectives, four time periods, four completely different styles, one body.


It's always a tricky thing to pull off multiple timelines with different styles in one and the same story. In this case it didn't really work. The only two stories that could hold some of my interest were the 1890s and 2014 plots, although the 2014 one was the only one that really had an original idea following all the discrimination and racism a female, Muslim police officer has to endure.


The frequent jumps between the different story lines made it difficult to really get into the story, and the story to tie them all together wasn't that strong. I didn't really care for the art (although I liked some better than others).


For me, it was not a one star read, definitely not the worst I've read, but also definitely not as good as I had anticipated based on the cover.


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