Hmm, this photo is misleading. I've put weight on since this was taken but it was either this photo or me in a darth vader mask

It took me a while to get into this book, so much so that I nearly gave up on it. But I'm glad I persevered because it gets interesting towards the end and is quite funny in some parts.

It was Ok, I am not a big fan of graphic novels and only read it because I wanted to know more of Westeros' back story. I would have preferred to be reading the next game of thrones book but this was better than nothing. I found the g. novel a bit fiddly to read on kindle, but never mind. It passed an hour on the train.

This is an intriguing piece of gothic fiction. Unlike many gothic works this is actually well written which made for a pleasant surprise. I particularly liked the way the novel uses plot characteristics apparent in Frankenstein and Doctor Faustus and applies them to a more contemporary setting. The author also does something similar with the photos, which reminded me of Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray. These make the novel familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the ending felt rushed, but this is my only criticism.
