I've always been dubious about graphic novels, then then I can be a bit of a book snob. My doubts came with "there aren't as many words of pages so how can they justify being the same price as a novel?" Well, I just found out.
So the paper's high quality so that probably accounts for the price in part. What truly amazed me is the drawing. It's captivating and super good and definitely worth it. So yeah, not everything that is said in the novel is said in the graphic novel, but you still get the overall sense of what's happening and, just like in a film, everything that is truly important and integral to the story line is put in and clearly expressed with not just the words that are put down but in the expressions of the characters who really do look lie I imagined them.
Totally awesome and so glad I brought it. If you liked the novels you just have to get these!
