Reading a graphic memoir: Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

  Reading "Fun Home" was my first experience with reading a graphic memoir. I thought that the narration of the memoir was very interested. I specifically enjoyed reading the combination of the pictures and the words. Since English is my second language, I found that the combination of words and pictures was very helpful as I felt that the pictures/images complimented the words and gave them a more in depth meaning and vividness. So I would say that I found this book easier to read and follow compared to Reality Hunger, except for two references Bechdel included that I had to look up on the internet.
