Around The Year In 52 Books: Week 10

A Dual-Timeline Novel

Progress Post:

--What are you reading this week? I'm reading Arata: The Legend, Volume 5 by Yuu Watase.

--What are the two time periods in your novel? I'm probably cheating, again, because this is technically a manga, but it fits for this category, and I'm using it! The two time periods in this manga novel are modern day Japan and a version of ancient Japan. It's kind of tricky, because this ancient world doesn't exactly exist in the history books of the modern Japan's world. It's almost like another world too.

--Do you find it difficult to follow the dual timelines in your novel? No, because this is a novel told through illustration, it's really easy to know when I'm in ancient times and when I'm in modern times. I get to see which characters I'm switching to and which world they are occupying. It's actually really nice because there is no confusion. Sometimes I find it difficult to read dual timeline novels, especially when the author doesn't really tell you when they are switching back and forth.
