Read full description of the books In the Small:I used this book as a sleeping aide. For serious.
There's an interesting concept to this book--everyone's shrunk to six inches in height, which throws all technology, from planes to staircases, out of whack. It's a neat apocalypse, but it's handled terribly. Michael Hague can draw, but he can't tell a story with his drawings. His art may be arranged in comic-like panels, but the transitions between panels rarely makes any sense. And his dialogue is never particularly interesting. Same goes for the story after the great shrinkening. It focuses on one family, including a boy that has ominous dreams and premonitions. He becomes the leader of a band of office workers.
There could be a good book in here (and the front cover says it's "soon to be a major motion picture," so maybe there'll be a good movie out of it), but Hague isn't the guy to produce it.
