Reviews for The Lychee Light Club
- Top review
Full-on but captivating
Its a very intense graphic novel, definitely not something you might consider for your teens (in my humble opinion anyways - I think it would have made a strong impact on me back in my teens).
Its dark, haunting, at times almost repulsive but always alluring and captivating - if you enjoy a dark, intense style of writing/graphics novel then this is for you.
Within a chapter it had already reminded me of American Psycho by Ellis: hard, shocking but at the same time you feel urged to read on just out of sheer curiosity.
Definitely recommended as a change in your normal reading genre. by Vanessa
