Salmon Doubts: 03/03/10
I love the oddball graphic novels that I find at my library. I'm not always willing to commit to yet another series but I'll pick up a stand alone book in a heartbeat. Salmon Doubts by Adam Sacks is one of my latest impulse picks.
Salmon Doubts follows a school of salmon from hatching through spawning. As they grow up and form friendships one fish decides to question the purpose of life. He follows his own path, constantly questioning the accepted norms of salmon life.
It's a short but thought provoking graphic novel. The salmon aren't anthropomorphized at all. Nor is their life cycle cheered up any. If you know salmon you know they die right after spawning. So along with the inevitability of life and death comes the message of life choices.
