Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Spontaneous - Joe Harris, Brett Weldele Spontaneous is a graphic novel in which Melvin, a young man investigates the mysterious death of his father--caused by Spontaneous Human Combustion. Melvin has the uncanny ability to tell when people are "burners" or people likely to be a victim of SHC, and it tends to happen around him. The story starts where a "burner" goes off in a mall, and Melvin meets up with a reporter interested in how he died.The artwork is well done and the story is easy to follow. The story is interesting, especially the twist at the end which I hadn't suspected. It's a brief novel so there isn't much to say about characterization, each character serves their purpose efficiently. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an interesting graphic novel.
