Review: Blankets

Blankets are the image of warmth, shelter and comfort. But in Craig Thompson's graphic memoir, blankets are a synonym for ''personal demons.'' From his childhood memories of sharing a bed with his sibling and fighting for the blanket that brought on his father's unreasonable anger, to receiving a blanket from a love gone wrong.

Although incredibly gorgeous, the illustrations were black and white, allowing tough subjects like: bullying, the sexual guilt that Christian upbringing can have on children, and long-distance relationships to become the center of attention.

I recommend reading this book on a good day.


  1. I see a lot of people reading this book and it looks fantastic and amazing. I really need to read it sooner then later.

    1. Oh, absolutely Angela. The Illustrations are amazing. It's about 600 pages too. Wonder how long it took him.
