Why we broke up by Daniel Handler - My thoughts

Let's talk about:


Why we broke up by Daniel Handler


What catches your attention first are of course the beautiful illustrations. They make the story much more real.
But let us not forget the other things!
"Why we broke up" is the story of Min and Ed. Well, it's much more of a letter from Min to Ed, the reasons why their relationship is over.
And isn't that quite extraordinary? Because basically you know already how the story is going to end.
However, you're still really interested in the story. Well yes,  I have to admit it had some slow parts when Min told us about the old movies, but as a whole it was very fluently to read.
But now the most important thing.
Because I want to point out that it's not just the illustrations who make the story so beautiful and real. The writing style of Daniel Handler is artistic, almost virtuosic. The way he plays with the language is incredibly fascinating.
And that's why I think that this book has to be valued for what it is. Not just a simple YA story with a heartwarming plot, but also an artistically made book, not only because of the pictures, but also because of the language.
