This was a very dark comedy with a nice twist at the end. I really enjoyed how the story was broken into two on each page. I liked seeing as the story went and the more they aged each year the illustrator added what seemed like 10 years. The use of dark colors to show the depression the man was going through added to the dark story. I also wondered if having the man's story on top of the woman's was to make his seem even more significantly bad or to place more value on the man. The women's story was as sad, but had more color to it to a little away from how depressing it was.
Colin Thompson stories are always strange and bizarre to me and thats what I love about them. Norman abd Brenda did not dissapoint.
