"Need More Love" is a brilliant visual memoir of Baby Boomer/hippie/sixties'artiste/ culture. In equal measure self loathing & self obsessed, Aline is funny, brutally honest, and above all, unapologetic.Her sometimes squalid accounts of family life, childhood, adolesence, skewed body image (& the resulting adult sexuality issues) are, for the most part, dead on. No matter what your parents are like, you'll feel better after reading about hers. "The Bunch" might not be able to go penstroke for penstroke on a techincal level with her husband, R. Crumb, but she is every bit his equal in terms of sensibility and storytelling. Lots of yummy pics of the "Crumb Manor" -Aline & Robert's dream house somewhere in an undisclosed village in rural France.
This is more like 4 and a half stars and not a full 5. Was this as good as the others, yes, but then again, not so much as this is supposed to be the last of the series and we are left with more questions than answers. The boyfriend felt that this was dude call worthy, but to me it would be a waste of a call. Too much was a given as far as I was concerned and the ending is not as worthy of her 4 previous works. I feel cheated and want answers to several questions that have been lingering since book 1 and I hope either Ms.Carriger addresses these in a new work in this series or is planning a new series that will stem off of this one and answer those questions for me. A relative let down for me for a final book.
