First, I don’t think that I like the graphic novel format very much. At least not yet. This is the first one I’ve read and I had a really hard time keeping up with the plot and catching everything that happened. But maybe that’s a learned skill.
Second, I’m not sure if I love the plot. I mean, the whole everyone is a slayer thing was ok to say you were going to do at the end of the show, but I’m not sure I want to read about it. Also, there seem to be an abundance of villians: the dragon thing, Amy, Warren, the US Army. And I don’t really like that they brought back Amy and Warren. I wanted something new. I don’t know. I’m not sure if I’ll keep reading the next volumes.
I finally finished A Spot of Bother. I had a hard time getting into it. I wanted to love it because I loved The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, but I just had no empathy for any of the characters. But a little more than half-way through the book, I started to care about them and I found myself interested in what happened. It’s a book about a family and their relationships to one another and to the people they love. It wasn’t as good as Curious Incident, but it’s grown on me.
I’m also in the middle of Macbeth and Northanger Abbey. Ben teaches Macbeth and I decided to read it along with his class this time. We read it together outloud which makes it seem easier. Plus we discuss each scene as we read it. We should finish it today.
