- January 1, 1970havishaThough I’m sure people will say there have been better graphic novels - I enjoyed this one the most; probably because of Magnus but this was an enjoyable read for me

- January 1, 1970Ave BinksSigh... I'm not sure how to reviewed these books to be honest. I feel the same way with this second installment of the series as I did with the first. It is a wonderfully faithful adaptation from the novel to a graphic novel style. However the artistry leaves A LOT to be desired. It's almost like Miss Jean is trying to mimic a manga style but trying is the optimum word here. Her attempts at well-rounded thought out depictions of the story just come across as sloppy and lazy, like she's drawing s Sigh... I'm not sure how to reviewed these books to be honest.

However the artistry leaves A LOT to be desired. It's almost like Miss Jean is trying to mimic a manga style but trying is the optimum word here. Her attempts at well-rounded thought out depictions of the story just come across as sloppy and lazy, like she's drawing storyboards for the original novel rather then drawing a stand-alone story. (I'm just glad I read the novels first to understand the full story.)Her characters come across as slightly unsettling because their eyes aren't filled in (they only have dots for pupils), like they're surprised all the time. And honestly I'm not even a big fan of Isabelle but she is supposed to be the most beautiful girl in the story and these depictions of her make her hideous. And don't even get me started on the backgrounds because there are none. Half of the time if I wasn't told where we were going I wouldn't have known.I really do feel like I am looking at the rough draft and not the final copy of a graphic novel.It's so sad to say this because I really do love reading my favorite novels turned into a graphic story form, I just wish they could have gotten I better artist for it. What's even sadder is that I've liked a lot of her standalone artwork in the past but when it comes to panel-by-panel drawings she just doesn't seem to put any effort into them. So I've got to say I'm really disappointed. On the other hand all of the above complaints won't stop me from buying all the future volumes as soon as they become available 😅💰💸📚more
- January 1, 1970SheilaI will not buy nor read this graphic novel. I've read the novels and enjoyed them very much. I would give the BOOKS 5 stars. The graphic novel edition has horrible horrible art, and I've been reading comic books for 35 years (not counting the years of my youth). There is manga that I do like, but not this. Horrible. Simply horrible.more
- January 1, 1970Jessica Williamson3.75I've said it before, and I'll say it again. These are not perfect, but they're a great way to refresh your mind of what happens in the books without having to take the time to read the whole thing.
