Something Slightly Different

I chose Black Paradise by Veerle Hilderbrandt from Netgalley as it would be my first ever translated Graphic Novel and I was excited to read. Black Paradise is about a family from Germany who move to Lagos in Nigeria because of the Dad's job and the novel follows them while living in Nigeria. I like how the chapters had their own headings which slowly got darker not only for the country but for the family unit as well and I thought that was really clever. I loved the muted artwork too. I would recommend anyone who loves graphic novels and are looking for something different to the norm. So I am giving this 4 stars
