Women Writers Reading Challenge Book #19: Hark! A Vagrant by Kate Beaton

IMG_2240

They call this book a graphic novel, which is somewhat disingenuous as its more of a collection of various comics on various subjects. Some of the comics are absolutely hilarious, and it’s clear that Kate Beaton has quite a gift for them, especially ones involving history and literature. However, I really disliked this book’s lack of organization and structure and some of the jokes went over my head, which is to be expected I suppose but it’s one of those books that makes you feel pretty badly read if you don’t get stuff. Overall it’s a fun book to peruse (and there’s a section on 15th century peasant love that is absolutely hilarious) and a good way to spend an hour or two.
