Maus


I know this is a graphic novel, but I'm counting it as a book (book #5 of 10 for my New Year's Resolution, fyi). Really well done. Despite its "comics" form, the author/artist really conveys the gravitas of the Holocaust as well as the heart-aching aftermath of the lives of some of the survivors. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I recommend it.

Graphic novels count! I crossed Watchmen off my list a while back myself. And don't you find some of these graphic novels are more intricate and well thought out than some of what passes for literature these days? Maybe I'm being a snob...
