Quick Synopsis: As a young girl, Suzie finds out something amazing about herself: when she has an orgasm, time literally stops. She goes through her adult life trying to figure out why that is. But never uses it to its full potential. It isn’t until she meets Jon at a party that she finds out…there are more like her.

The second actual sentences are on a page, it’s already funny. However, in contrary to that, it does touch on very real and very sad topics. There is death, despair, and intense feelings of solitude. But Fraction writes it in such a wonderful way. It’s personal and distant all at the same time. The characters are great together. Their chemistry flows together so well. It makes you feel as if you’re listening in on two people who have known each other for years. Love it.
The scenes in which they are caught in their…”stopped time orgasm world” are beautiful. Zdarsky blends colors and lines around each character in the scene like I’ve never seen (get it? ha). It’s truly gorgeous. The dialogue, the art, it’s truly something to marvel at.
Yes. This book does contain some content that is not suitable for children, but as an adult, you can definitely read this and almost guarantee that you will love it.
