Book Review: The Night is Short, Walk on Girl

 Hey Everyone! First off, I decided to read this book because I was very intrigued by the art style of the movie that's currently on HBO Max. My husband and I watched the movie a couple of months back and while it was beautifully designed, we thought it was a bit confusing and it wasn't on the top of our favorite movies list . Fast forward and I was in an anime book store in Austin and found that the movie was based off the book. So I got the book to help me see if it would make the story better, because I kept reading all these positive reviews and even the cashier was surprised when I told him we weren't the biggest fans of the movie.
