Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language
by Gretchen McCulloch
Submitted by Molly J.
The Internet has influenced our language in more ways than one would expect. This book analyzes the changes in the English language from the days of online chatrooms to Snapchat. Minutia such as capitalization and punctuation can mean wildly different things in "internet speak." If you have any interest in internet culture or linguistics, Because Internet is both entertaining and informative.
Best friends Jenna and Maureen are ready to embark on the trip to Paris that they had imagined and planned as young students, except now both are divorced with college-aged and married children. Things disrupt their plans once again as both of them start relationships and try to navigate the challenges that life presents to them. A good story with a happy ending – you will care about these women and enjoy their journey as they finally find time for themselves
This graphic novel’s cover art and enigmatic title drew me in, and I read it not knowing what to expect. What I got was a daughter’s memoir of her aging father’s illness, transformed into a surreal parable of loss and mourning. I enjoyed the subdued (though memorable) illustration style, and although the symbolism is perhaps a bit “on the nose” (a pun readers of the book will understand), it worked well for what the book was trying to accomplish.
