    ePUB bitcoinshirts.co ´ In Waves Kindle ´ waves pdf, In Waves PDFEPUBThis graphic memoir alternates between the personal and the historical In the memoir section the author outlines his relationship with his partner as she battles cancer Intertwined with their personal story are sections about the history of surfing This book is clearly something he promised his partner he would write and it is a lovely ode to her However I the reader was kept at a distance during the personal sections these people seemed too remote for me to connect with in the telling of this story There's a wall a clear one but still a wall put up between the people and the reader I wanted to be let in Feel emotionally connected to the people The history portions felt disjointed and while I appreciate personal stories set amid historical contexts in this case surfing culture there wasn't enough of a tie in Solace found in nature especially in waves is the thin thread that ties the two sections together and I wish that was
