Intimate Strangers - Juliette Mead

Intimate Strangers by Juliette Mead
Story of 2 families swapping houses for 2 months. One family from USA, other from UK. They each bring their whole family with them and
each has set up interesting things they think the other family will want to do when abroad.
Interesting to hear of the problems they each have as they are in uncommon situations. Just the things around the houses are so different than what they are used to.
Christy visiting in England is given free rein of the house and discovers Oliver's book and his thoughts and wonders if the events are true. Mystery around the book arises
and there is more to swapping than just their houses.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Mind the Gap, Volume 1: Intimate Strangers
Mind the Gap, Volume 1: Intimate Strangers - Rodin Esquejo (Artist), Jim McCann, Sonia Oback (Artist) Some gorgeous artwork and clever placement take a basic 'out of body' story full of clich├ęd character types to another level. Not sure how long the series can sustain the plot.

Review: Intimate Strangers by Laura Taylor
Intimate Strangers (Fallen Angel 0.5) - Laura Taylor

Nicolas has the whole tortured hero thing going for him, but I didn't like him all that much at first. I understand that he first assumed that Hannah was really out to get him, but his reaction was a bit extreme. I did like them together, but it seemed a little unbelievable at first, since it hadn't been that long ago that Nicolas was threatening Hannah with a knife.


Hannah goes to Nicolas' home hoping to find out where her brother is, but her brother ended up being less important then I expected. Spoiler, he does so up. Most of this book is about Hannah and Nicolas falling in love, but I'm not sure I really believed it. I know there's some time we don't see, but it seemed too fast. This is a novella rather than a full novel, so that's not really surprising.

Mind The Gap Vol 1
Mind the Gap, Volume 1: Intimate Strangers - Rodin Esquejo (Artist), Jim McCann, Sonia Oback (Artist)

Elle Peterson is young, wealthy and beautiful - and trapped in a coma after someone tried to kill her. Trapped in some kind of an in-between spirit world she tries to figure out what happened to her and how to get back into her body. Everyone is a suspect and it's impossible to know who to trust.

 

A very interesting graphic novel. The art work is very beautiful, with a lot of colour and it works great together with the story, which is also quite good. I was really wondering and trying to figure out who did this to Elle, so I'll have to read the next volume as well.

 

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

After reading this graphic novel, I was really surprised to see it was published a few years ago. NetGalley usually offers new books, mostly advance reader copies. While I definitely enjoyed it, I can't help being worried since the latest issue came out a year and a half ago and the story doesn't end there. Will it be continued? I want to find out what happens next, but I am not willing to risk reading the following volumes and end up with a cliffhanger that will never be solved if the comic book series doesn't continue.

Mind the Gap tells the story of a young, wealthy, beautiful woman - Elle - who is in a coma after someone whose identity we don't know tried to kill her. She "lives" in a place as a sort of ghost, being able to see what is happening in the hospital and can also visit other places. Elle can also see other comatose patients and has long conversations with them. She suffers from memory loss and it is not clear if the ghosts she is speaking to are real or they are just manifestations of her consciousness.

The story is very confusing, but the artwork is absolutely beautiful and it is very clear this first volume is meant to just introduce you to the story.

As I have mentioned before, I am very curious about what happened, but the story is progressing slowly and the first 16 issues came out in the years of 2012 and 2013, with only issue 17 released in 2014 - which introduces the second act of the story.

I am more than willing to dive into the story more but I just fear it won't be continued anymore by the author. Hopefully, NetGalley promoting this after 3 years from its original publication date is a sign the publishers want to test if readers are interested and also re-promote the series. *Fingers crossed*
