A very unique book! Told from the perspective of 2 ghosts in an old house while a family comes to terms with the estranged father/husband's death. The story weaves between characters and explores various connections to the past. I guessed several plot reveals, but there were a few the caught...

The three incestuous sisters

by Audrey Niffenegger

Reviewer Rating:

Niffenegger's illustrated or visual novel has also been called a novel with images. The story of sibling rivalry, love and forgiveness is creepy but that's not all.

This movie is better than you’d expect. It seems like video game related movies are ill-received, but the story and the imagery are enchanting.  The animation is done well, at times seems a little dated, but doesn’t take away from it being a good story and the important parts of...
