Underwhelming, given the rave reviews. Mildly diverting.
Art is reminiscent of the delightful Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy, which is probably what tempted me, along with the buzz. Storyline, however, is strictly mundane. Though it centers on three young British women meeting as college roomies, all their obstacles are mundane. There’s a bout with influenza, a sexist social media site (hello, proto-facebook!) and celebrate an 18th birthday by drinking. Ester is a goth, Daisy is a home-schooled naif, and Susan a cynical intellectual. Surprisingly, all are white. It’s cute, and parts are funny, particularly when they each navigate having the flu in their own ways. It’s entertaining but partially based on Britishisms that may not entirely translate (view spoiler).
Also, for those who might be triggered, on two different occasions, some of the humor is based on the naif being high.
