I mentioned here that I had planned my Christmas book presents for the boyfriend and the family. They have arrived and look so lovely that I had to show someone.
My favourite has to be Audrey Niffenegger’s graphic novel The Night Bookmobile. It is beautifully illustrated, as you can see in the strory below, and manages to capture her haunting, lovely style in only a few pages. I loved it, and if my sister doesn’t then I will have it instead!
Some reviewers on Amazon slated this book because it isn’t a novel. Ah, Amazon, home of the well crafted review… I’m not sure that I’d want to trust the recommendation of someone who sees the words “Graphic Novel” and expects a wordy tome like The Time Traveller’s Wife. That might just be and my prejudices, but I suspect not.
