There were a few misspellings in the text, but it fit the idea of a personal journal, so they pleased me.Overall, a cool concept and executed better than I thought when I started reading. I wish there was a sequel, but then, would that be in a journal, too?It made me smile when the protagon [...]

    5. Always a fan of epistolary style, particularly here with the use of handwritten entries and drawings. Adds a great personable touch that really helps to convey the protagonist's emotions and rapid decline.
