Gunnerkrigg Court, Volume 2 by Thomas Siddell, 296 pages, read by Courtney, on 07/22/2012

I’m really wishing I could remember the first volume of Gunnerkrigg Court, because I’m still having difficulty figuring out exactly what the overarching plot is. I do remember that I really enjoyed the first one, and I recall many of the characters (particular the not-so-human ones). As far as I can tell, Antimony is continuing her education at Gunnerkrigg Court and many amusing and/or mysterious things happen. A good chunk of the story oscillates between Antimony’s perspective and her late mother’s. The most memorable episode of this volume is her meeting with Coyote, made possible by his love of Annie’s mother. The artwork is fantastic and the reading is enjoyable, even if one doesn’t exactly remember where the story was headed in the first place.
