Roots The word seems to have taken on a new meaning It s become less and less about my family roots, and about where I ll lay down my own Roots is Tara O Connor s first long form graphic project, a memoir It s kind of a book within a book, focused as it is in part on a kickstarter project that was successful, yay, preceding this book, a project about O Connor s finding her roots, in Ireland Which wasn t as successful as she had hoped in making dramatic discoveries about her family in Ireland Th [...]
Roots The word seems to have taken on a new meaning It s become less and less about my family roots, and about where I ll lay down my own.I think this is exactly what I liked the most about this book It wasn t the fact that it was really cute and relatable but how Tara s roots were sprouting as her story unfolded, instead of being already deep underneath the ground It was how her future ended up mattering than her past because that s exactly how life works Because it is a true story, it only t [...]
Mmm I wanted to like this graphic novel, I really did I went into it expecting a travelogue of Ireland, but it quickly morphed away from that I m guessing the author is not comfortable with landscapes, because those were mostly avoided which is half the point of Ireland And despite having a data dump of the author s family background, I felt like she didn t do enough research before going to Ireland and therefore sort of fumbled around out there.The book quickly morphs into a love story when she [...]
3.5 stars I liked this book, but found it somewhat slow, it did get better as it went along The graphics are excellent, and children could also use it as a coloring book It is basically an authors story of her own journey, and her visit to Ireland, which leads to romance It was ok as I said just too slow paced for my taste.
ROOTS is a very personal memoir that is about personal growth than the life story of a young artist The book began as a journal of O Connor s trip to her family s homeland, Irealand, after her life took a stark turn However, it became a chronicle of change, as she struggled to find answers and purpose in a life she thought she knew Comics became than just a passion, but an outlet The weeks that followed were something of a whirlwind, and O Connor found herself exploring her family less, and he [...]
As someone who fell in love with Ireland, I fucking loved this book It reminded me of a mix of Lucy Knisley s work and Craig Thompson s Blankets I just wish it was longer It s a self publish book, so you can get it on the author s website
Roots reads like Tara O Connor wrote a book because she started a Kickstarter saying she d write a book She flies to Ireland, ostensibly to uncover her family tree after a painful divorce, but instead ends up in the welcoming arms of a local fellow They fall in love and stuff and long distance relationships suck andwait, wasn t this book about Tara s family tree Every 50 pages, there s a little blip about her ancestors, but most of those sentences end with question marks Sure, I understand that [...]
A quick read travelogue memoir of Tara s divorce and subsequent travels to find her family s roots in Ireland Her travelogue quickly morphs into a memoir of her new relationship and the process of healing from a bad past relationship the details about her family s past are pretty thin and info about Ireland is also spare Roots isn t exactly what it sets out to be, but her look into healing is relatable and her new love is cute and sweet O Connor s black and white art is also really sweet and car [...]
Thank you to , IDW Publishing to the author Tara O Connor for this wonderful giveaway What a beautiful book I enjoyed every page Heartbreaking heartwarming with great art, also done by O Connor Tara confirms my need to visit Ireland one day
Absolutely wonderful Just beautiful, moving and insightful.
This was amazing It was a really great story with beautiful illustrations The author captures the thrill of travel and the depths of heartache with a deft hand.
Really cute graphic novel
Wanted a little bit out of this, not meaty enough for me but loved the art 3.5 stars
I thought this was interesting and moving, albeit a little light I was definitely rooting for the author and I admire her honesty in what she shared Definitely a worthy quick read
A lovely and refreshing memoir of a personal and relatable story The emotional bits are by far the best written parts, but still a touching story with some great art to go with it.
While Roots was cute in the end, it wasn t exactly what I expected With a scant 150 pages, coupled with large art panels, it doesn t feel like there s very much there I wanted depth, history, emphasis on the rich beauty and history of Ireland The fact that the setting was Ireland didn t even make a huge impact so little time was spent on the countryside and family research that it felt like it could ve been set anywhere That aspect, especially with how it s kind of played up in the descriptio [...]
fluffy lots of drinking
I will never get the time spent back.
I enjoyed this gentle story about a woman finding happiness and fulfillment after the end of a frigid relationship Loved the travelogue of Ireland which served as the setting.
