Malin’s CBR-III Reviews # 69-77: Yes, I did another massive blog update

So my work is keeping me way busier this time of year than I’m used to, which reduces the amount of free time I have for reading. I’m also a lot more tired when I do have spare time, so reading takes longer, but I AM still reading. I just hadn’t really blogged any of the books since the last update. So on the final day of my autumn break, I decided to blog all of them in one day, again. Here goes:

sevenstories’ CBR-III Review #31: The Unwritten Vol. 1 by Mike Carey

The Unwritten is the first graphic novel I have bought, rather than borrowed from someone. I liked Watchmen and I really enjoyed the Fables series, both of which were recommended to me by someone who knew what they were talking about. The Unwritten is my first time striking off on my own and trying something I’d chosen myself. The Unwritten seemed to be something I would enjoy as it is packed with literary references and is based on the concept of real life and literature merging, something I’ve enjoyed in Fables but also in novels such as Jasper Ffordes work. All in all this is an enjoyable read but not one that makes me want to buy the next in the series. I think that Fables is superior when it comes to literary graphic novels and I would recommend that over The Unwritten. Nonetheless, it is a fun read with some nice touches.

The full review is on my blog: http://acaseforbooks.blogspot.com/2011/06/review-31-unwritten-vol-1-tommy-taylor.html
