Is a very nice adaptation from a not so easy read. I wish they have adapted a few more parts but overall very well done.

I was really disappointed in this. I was once an avid graphic novel reader and I can handle a cheesy comment or two, but this was filled with them, and it wasn't because of the villain's preferences...
Coming from such a literary legend as Maragaret Atwood I think I expected something totally different. Maybe this shouldn't have been where I started reading her work.

Sending out this #groupg #lmpbc pick tomorrow in the mail! Liked it— lots about identity that we inherit and family history that we discover.

I‘m diving deep into my library system‘s Native American/First Nations/Indigenous authors this month and picked up this graphic novel about two First Nations teens. The story addresses the high rates of missing and murdered First Nations women, as well as the foster care system, the support systems (& shortcomings) in public schools, and traditional practices. A good intro but I wanted more plot and characterization to go along with these themes.

Stunning art, as usual, for this one. The story is complex and was a little hard to follow in this issue. I got the feeling that mainly the characters are being positioned for the next installment. Good to see more of Kippa‘s backstory in this one. 3.5⭐️ #hoopla

Te Araroa kilometers tramped: 224.5 of 3005.3

Books completed on trail: 3

Despite this color pic, most of this omnibus is black and white. Think of it as stories within a story. Each character has a story of how they ended up at Castle Waiting and they are revealed throughout the book. I‘m not sure if this book is meant for kids or adults, but I enjoyed it. #hoopla

This volume was a little heavier than the first, but I liked where they went with it by the end. Also the amazing bookmark I found at B&N 😁

Ever since I started working in the children's section of a bookstore I've felt obliged to delve into certain genres that I had never read for my own entertainment but have surprisingly been enjoying a lot! Like middle-grade graphic novels.
Have any of you ever starting reading completely different genres than your norm for work-related reasons??

Zelma Absolutely. Read hundreds more picture books than usual when I was a children‘s librarian. Now I read something I typically wouldn‘t choose for our book club every month. (edited) 2d

This is, in my opinion, the great American graphic novel. It was made by Will Eisner as an opportunity to explore his Jewish experience. The use of the apartment as the stage for the people who live in it over a century.

The fourth volume in this series doesn‘t read as strong as the previous three volumes. The story has grown so large that it‘s becoming more difficult to track all the characters and how they connect. This fourth volume comes together in the end, but I was a bit lost during the first half of it. I‘m still on board for the long haul and am eager to see how it all eventually ends. Sana Takeda‘s art is as gorgeous as ever. #graphicnovel #fantasy

CoffeeCatsBooks I agree with you that this one wasn‘t as strong but the artwork is just so fantastic. 4d
