I have been a follower of Rick ever since he made The Lightning Thief. He's my favorite author. But when I found out that there are Graphic novels out, I was pretty excited. I'm a huge comic nerd. So I bought this right away. And the moment I bought it, I enjoyed it! It's fun to read, and the characters really are like in the books.

-------------------------------------------------------------- "A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel" Written by Madeline L'Engle Illustrated and adapted by Hope Larson (Farrar Straus Giroux, 2012) -------------------------------------------------------------- For several generations of readers, Madeline L'Engle's "A Wrinkle In Time" has been a kid's lit-young adult touchstone, a delicate yet strident defense of individual will, creativity, scientific method and free thinking, it is perhaps one of the best-known and most widely read science fiction novels in the American canon. It obviously has countless devoted fans, and the task of adapting it into comicbook form was a bold, audacious move -- would fans accept it, or recognize the characters on the page as the same characters they had pictured in their mind, lo, those many years ago?
Like many, I was excited to hear of the graphic novel's publication, but wary of how it might play out. When the book arrived, I was thrilled to see ... full review
"EXCELLENT, just like Twilight graphic novel" - By KKA
Although I'm not a fan of Twilight, I have to admit that I am fan of the graphic novel version; it makes Twilight more bearable to me. I have the first Twilight graphic novel and I LOVE IT. So I bought the New Moon Graphic Novel, and as with the first, I was HOOKED!! The art and characters are just as beautiful, and the book included the key points of the story.
The only compliant I have w/book was that it wasn't as long as the first graphic novel, so I'm little worried about what scenes they may cut off or shortened in New Moon Vol. 2. Also, it didn't have much splash of color, probably because the book was short.
Because I liked New Moon Vol. 1 so much, I'm annoyed that I have to wait over a year for the next volume. I mean, New Moon ... full review
"A unique, fun take on fairy tales" - By Madelyn Pryor (Mesa, AZ United States)
Fables: Legends in Exile reprints the first 5 issues of the Vertigo Comics' series, Fables. The concept of the series is well done, original, and interesting. The classic fairy tale figures of legend were driven from their lands by a mysterious creature named "the Adversary". Left with no choice but leave their lands or die, the Fables fled to New York City, living in secret, judging, policing, and governing themselves.
This volume centers around the question, ` Who murdered Rose Red?" The beloved sister of Snow White is violently murdered, her apartment soaked in blood, her body missing. Immediately Snow White, who is now the Deputy Mayor of the Fable community enlists the help of Bigby Wolf, who is now the Sheriff. Together, they sort through a very unusual list of suspects, including Bluebeard, Jack (of Jack and the Beanstalk), and Prince Charming himself.
"Game is Upstaged by the Book" - By Tom B. (Pasadena, TX)
First off, I'll say their marketing technique worked. Having never read Agatha Christie books previously, I found Murder on the Orient Express to be very cleverly written (5 stars on its own) and I am interested in reading more of Hercule Poirot in the future.
The book was written in 1934, but is still very easy to read more than 70 years later. I can see now what people used to do before the advent of video games.
Concerning the game itself I can say that I was not terribly impressed (2 stars), though it did enhance my reading of the book. While the graphics and voice acting (especially by David Suchet as Poirot) were very good, the interaction with the characters and various environments do not live up to what is advertised. Your main role in the game is uninspired: take any item ... full review
"Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 8" by Jeff Kinney is another installment of hugely popular and funny comic series that was previously published as online comic and due to its popularity deserved to be released in novel edition.
Its hero, called Greg Heffley is a 6th grade student who really wants to become popular, like most children of that age. He is writing his diary which looks like it's written in the notebook, full of funny text and even funnier drawings. Greg lives in an (almost) normal family with his parents and two brothers, one older named Rodrick who is heavy metal fan and other smaller, named Manny, who is whiny kid. His best friend is Rowley Jefferson, boy of same age with annoying parents who constantly annoy and bother making Greg's parents look like the best in the world.
I'm super pleased with my purchase, package arrived ahead of schedule, the packaging is adorable. I was disappointed to find that 2 of the glasses had chips/cracks within a couple weeks of owning them, but I'm blaming that on the way I had them stacked in the cupboard. Long live Bettie!
