Pullbox Reviews: Harleen, Or One Woman’s Descent Into Madness…

…the reader witnesses the gradual descent of the character—and sudden birth of Harley Quinn—from her mind’s perspective, as issues in the (DC) world around interact with the young doctor’s experience at Arkham Asylum. The psychology Sejic presents is fascinating, and horridly logical. The birth of Harley Quinn is less a tragic happenstance or star-crossed love story than a cold, malignant evolution. And “Jay” and Harleen’s relationship? Much less a fun Natural Born Killers-esque love story and much more an exploration of psychological abuse and control. (13/13)

From the Pullbox Bookshelf: Rose & Thorn Reinvented (Again)

Predictably, Simone’s writing is outstanding, and her take on the Rose/Thorn construct is engaging. Gritty and realistic, it makes for an entertaining read without demanding too much out of our suspension of disbelief; the psychology, if a little stretched, is believable enough for me to buy. And there’s enough twists and turns (and a gut punch of an ending) to keep things enthralling throughout. (13/13)
