Wow! Utterly outstanding! A book about life and death using art as the medium through which the tale is told. Ultimately the story is about dying and death, something all humans must experience, and once one grasps this concept it will affect the living of one's life. An absolutely beautiful story. Personally, I had problems with its atheistic worldview but nonetheless appreciated the tale being told. The art is stunning and full of movement. The choice of sculpture as the representative art form was a wise one and McCloud really makes it work showing the embodiment of life in action through his drawings. Simply breath-taking.
