An abridged "graphic novel.",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Alchemist: A Graphic Novel (an illustrated interpretation of The Alchemist) (Hardcover)
I ordered this book as a present for a niece. I was under the impression that the entire text of the book would be there, with illustrations of the characters in each page. The artwork is great, reminiscent of "Prince Valiant", but the backbone of any book, especially THIS book is the text. Not all the text appears in this graphic novel. It should be advertised as a "Graphic Novel of an abridged "The Alchemist" ". The page for this listing does not mention the book is abridged; only the author briefly at the beginning of the novel alludes to its abridgment. A big disappointment.
