Review: Habibi

Habibi by Craig Thompson

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I have been on a quest to find graphic novels that I like. I saw one in the library titled Habibi, which was supposedly the story of an unlikely couple - an Arab girl and a black boy. The story line may have been fine - I didn't finish the book. The graphic suggestions of rape were a bit much for me and I began to wonder if the message of the book - love between people of two different cultures - was overwhelmed by the voyeurism of seeing the girl submitting to sex.
