Geoff is a salmon.
Geoff worries way too much.
Why was he born?
Why do we die?
Why is it so easy for everyone else to meet girls but so hard for him?
Why is it so important to be part of a group?
This graphic novel is far less about plot than it is about the angst which we all go through when examining our lives. Geoff represents the introspective person who pays attention but just never seems to understand what is happening. He’s always looking around to see why everyone seems to be in such a hurry to get back where they came from. He is always worried about whether he’ll meet a girl and spawn. And in the end, why is any of this such a big deal in the first place.
If a library or school wants to start a book discussion group with a graphic novel, this is a great one to go with as it is easy to justify the message.
