The series as a whole is great; solid writing and beautiful artwork to match. For imaginative horror graphic novel, this series is easily one of the most creative and fun of the bunch. It certainly went with a bang.
A little too tidy of ending but it can be forgiven in comparison with the rest of the series. Now I have to find a new way to waste my time once a year for approximately half an hour. Thanks Joe Hill! Kevin, I am loving the pencil reviews! Enjoyed the review of Thinking Fast and Slow also.
Man I've been away for a while. I've missed so much this year. Club Read is moving so fast lately good to see.

Actually it has been a big week on the pencil front the past couple of weeks. A new sharpener that has replaced the Classroom Friendly sharpener I'll have to review. I've added more international pencils from German, UK, and French brands that have manage to cause a major reshuffling of the pencil ranks. And in big news there is a new pencil podcast done by some of the best pencil bloggers out there. Total nerdfest for me this month. Thousands of ethnic Japanese citizens and families were stripped of their freedom, homes, businesses, and sense of security overnight.
Limited to what they could carry in a single suitcase, they were ushered from homes to temporary living facilities in horse stalls to their final destinations, tent cities in the harsh, remote desert regions of our country. If that wasn't shameful enough the government forced everyone to take loyalty tests, which if answered honestly could result in separation or deportation. They lost everything they had built before the war and during the war they lost their dignity. And yet their really isn't much written about this period. When the Emperor was Divine is the story of one family as they struggle to prepare, adjust to live within the camp, and come home from a internment camp in the Utah desert.
The story is told from the perspective of members of the family in alternating chapters.
Table of contents
The first chapter is told from the mother's point of view as they are forced to prepare for the evacuation. The fear of the unknown and the struggle to maintain their pride is palpable. The second chapter is told by the daughter as they travel to their new home, and dealing with their loss sense of identity.
The third chapter is from the young son's perspective as they adjust and learn to live within the camp. The final chapter is told from either a more mature son's perspective or a combination of both the boy and girls voices telling of a once proud father, who is now just a broken paranoid shell and a family struggling to put their life together in a world they are now very unfamiliar to the world they left. Each chapter is unique and distinct.

Normally a story told like this can be choppy, but here they flow together with no harsh transitions. This book is unrelentingly depressing and dark. The family makes the best of their situation, but they are clearly broken and they are never too far from crumbling under the stress. The only thing holding them together are their bonds.
Hope is in short supply. The only real problem with this book is that it is far too short. The four chapters only cover the first few months of the war and the aftermath for this one family. It's not enough to explore the entirity of the effects of forced relocation on the family.
This book calls for a much more in depth exploration of internment. But really this is only a minor defect of a well written book, that I'm glad I was able to snipe off the wishlist. Levitt and Steven Dunbar Since this seems to be such a wildly popular book I really don't have much to add to the discussion. It's hard to imagine that economics could ever be considered popular in a public market place. Levitt and Dunbar have accomplished something wonderful.
They have gotten people to read and enjoy an economics book. Granted it's not the typical economics texts you find in say an economics department, but the principle is the same. And they managed to not dumb down the hard to understand data and facts that led to their conclusions.
This isn't the sort of fluffy pop-science used to sell books.
Text Analysis and Annotation
There is something to be learned here and has the power to alter biased thinking and shatter previously held truths. I quite enjoyed this read even if most of the same information can be gleaned from the excellently produce documentary of the same name. Really enjoyed your review of When the Emperor Was Divine. I've also heard great things about The Buddha in the Attic by the same author. The Buddha in the Attic looks very interesting I hope to get it someday.
I think it may actually be a better choice sense it looks a bit more involved than When the Emperor was Divine. Dixon Ticonderoga with the word black and the grade with a 2 in a small diamond Origin: China and Mexico Another hugely iconic pencil in America is the Dixon Ticonderoga.creatoranswers.com/modules/booking/eclipse-lunar-julio-2020.php
The distinct yellow barrel, topped with a green ferrule with its two yellow horizontal bands, and pink eraser are instantly recognizable the world over. I wanted one of these so badly as a kid. At least that was my Impression. Sadly these pencils are no longer American made and have lost much of their iconic status. The move of operations to China and Mexico has been a bit of a mix blessing for Dixon. There has been an explosion in their product line: triangular pencils, jumbo sized beginner pencils, pencils with rounded barrels, and some new and exotic finishes.
However, the fit-and-finish and graphite cores have suffered as of late. First the last American made Ticonderoga model HB.
This pencil is a Dixon classic, yellow barreled, green foiled pencil of greatness. The lead is nice and dark with just the right amount of grit.
