April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Love: The Lion by Frédéric Brrémaud, illustrated by Federico Bertolucci

Love: The Lion Love: The Lion by Frédéric Brrémaud
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The third volume in the Love series of graphic novels, The Lion (I have not yet read the first, The Fox, or second, The Tiger), follows what I understand to be the same format as previous volumes: what we are silently presented is a day in the life of a lion, one who has no pride of his own and who is trying to find his way in the jungle that day. Presented with no text whatsoever, Brrémaud's writing and Bertolucci's illustrations are both to-the-point and poignant, showing what could happen in the jungle at any point in a day, and that it is not always pretty in nature.

I'll be looking for the rest of the volumes in this series.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher thru NetGalley for a fair and honest review.
