Giant Days, Volume 4: 07/01/17
Giant Days, Volume 4 by John Allison, Max Sarin, and Whitney Cogar follows the roommates as they start to prepare for the next year. There's a lot going on: getting Esther back into university, finding housing, making a student film, and Susan's attempts at dating.
My favorite part, though, is the mad hunt for finding housing. The girls missed the deadline to look for housing via the University, so now they're on their own — finding a house or flat to rent. Ah memories from the days when Ian and I couldn't afford much. Starter apartments are universally terrible things.
The housing story came at a time when we're in the middle of moving out of our home to sell it and to buy a larger one. That means we've had to rent an apartment — the firs time in sixteen years.
The housing plot also came out about the same time as the tenth series Doctor Who episode "Knock Knock." Mind you, Susan, Esther, and Daisy don't end up renting anything paranormal, but the montage of creepy homes and landlords brings to mind the similar montage in "Knock Knock."
