Read full description of the books Píldoras azules:I have pretty mixed feelings about this book. I know that some of it stems from having higher expectations than what I actually got. It wasn't strictly bad, but I don't know that I enjoyed it that much.
First off, I didn't like the art and found it very off-putting from page one. It really just didn't do a lot for me visually, which can make it pretty hard to enjoy a graphic novel. Then, there's the issue of emotion. Given that this book is a real life love story of a couple where one party has been diagnosed HIV positive, I was expecting this book to make me feel something. It was nearly two hundred pages and I think maybe five of those pages gave me those feelings. I wanted this book to make me feel something and it didn't, and that just may be an issue of my own expectations. Of course, it may also have been a result of not really liking the author. Not the writing, but as an actual person within the context of his story. He came off very pretentious, like the kind of person I would be annoyed to spend time with in real life. My final issue rests with either the translation or the writing. It's hard to tell which when the work was not originally in English. The actual language used wasn't enjoyable to read and the punctuation... was annoying... after a few pages!!!!
Now for what I actually enjoyed. It was nice to see that despite the subject matter that the author was able to avoid doom and gloom, was able to make it a truly "positive" love story. Actually, this book is a subject overall that I wish was dealt with more, both in fiction and non-fiction. I would love to see more autobiographies and novels both that deal with relationships in the context of HIV. I'm glad that the author was able to present his own story of something so personal, especially when it never once felt to me like he was being disrespectful to Cati's own story. He never gave us a "why" and I am glad for it.
Overall, while I didn't really love this book, it wasn't strictly a bad book. It just wasn't for me. I probably wouldn't recommend this to someone, but I also would not dissuade someone from reading it.
