Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.
I am not a graphic novel person. I’m not sure why, but instead of artwork on the pages I see something close to a chaos of jumbled drawings spackled with confusing bubbles of print--probably some brain glitch, a kind of graphic image dyslexia maybe. But I’ve read and heard raves about Saga and I certainly liked the sound of the storyline: two humanoids from warring alien races--his with horns & hers with wings--fall in love, have a baby, and then are on the run from both of their peoples. Sort of a space opera Romeo and Juliet. So I got Saga from my library and liked it well enough to read the whole book--a graphic novel first for me--but couldn’t love it.
What I liked:
What I didn’t like:
This is the start of a series and the story is well introduced though it doesn’t go very far in this book, but I can highly recommend Saga to anyone who doesn’t have excessive squeamishness or general difficulty enjoying graphic novels.
