Have you ever seen a movie and said "It was good but the book was better."? The comic and graphic novels give you amazing artwork and colors. (Yes! Go buy them as well!) This novel allows a much greater depth and insight into the story. The humor and jokes are still present. Yet this book provides so much more. Important details which a picture can only hint at, are lovingly described and expand on things which you thought you knew (if you are already a Girl Genius fan).
Even if you don't like to read because words scare you and paper makes your head hurt; you will want to read this book. It is filled with action, adventure, a few kisses and science!
Unlike most of the reviewers here, I was ignorant of the original graphic novels, and tried this volume just because it was bargain-priced. Now, halfway through it, I'm in love -- I've wrenched myself away from my kindle to come and buy the rest of the trilogy.
But, while this volume does very well as a stand-alone, I have realized I'm missing some of the harmonics of its plot convolutions because I haven't read Book 1. So here I am, shelling out big for the other two and panting to do so. This is a 1982 Bordeau of a book, a 5-pound assortment of L. A. Burdick chocolates, a perfect Beef Wellington of a book -- a rare and substantial treat!
This book lays it all out nicely. The narrative provides delicious tidbits that a comic has to supply visually--such as exactly when Lucrezia is talking.
The writing isn't perfect, but the voice is simply stellar and makes up for it. You can tell the authors love, love, love this steampunky world and these characters.
I really love the books as a companion to my graphic novels of the webcomic, they really complement each other, although they are the same story there are enough extra details in the books to make them as enthralling as the webcomic.
Looking forward to seeing where the Foglio's will take Agatha next!
