My Thoughts

First I just want to address the format change. This isn’t here to stay. I’m currently loving my mini reviews format but I buddy read this book and I am trying to get my review up as soon as possible which is why I have brought the old format back for this one.

Now for the actual review. I buddy read this book with Jonny from Jaunts & Haunts (the link will take you to his review). He watched the adaptation of it before reading it and I have been wanting to read it so I could watch the adaptation so I was excited when he suggested this for our next buddy read.

This is the first book I have read by Joe Hill and it definitely won’t be my last. When I read graphic novels I can sometimes feel like I’m  missing some of the story but that wasn’t the case with this one. The author sucked me in immediately. I never felt like I needed more information. 

It was easy to distinguish between each of the characters. None of them felt similar and they were all fleshed out. Right from the beginning I was attached to the characters and felt for them. Hill just has a way with words. The illustrations were amazing and they depicted the story perfectly. The story as well as the illustrations was a little gruesome but it wasn’t overly done.

Overall I really loved this and can’t wait to continue on with the next one very soon.
