How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television?
When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something we wanted?
How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED?
The world we knew is gone.
The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.
An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living.
In a matter of months society has crumbled.no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.
In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.

Now we have pretty much all seen the show The Walking Dead. It’s pretty popular and has been out for years now but, even still I just got around to actually reading the graphic novels that the show is based off of. The show does not ruin the graphic novel in the slightest because there are so many differences between the television show and the book that they both stand on their own. Sure, there is storyline in both that are the same but the book is a bit different, so far. I have only read the first volume. Some of the characters that I know aren’t in the book yet and then there are some that have already left that surprised me.

The artwork is black and white and very well done. You can get the emotions off of the characters by the images and the feelings that the story is trying to convey. I have the second volume sitting next to me and I will definitely be continuing it.

If you’re iffy about reading this because you a have watched the show, I urge you to pick it up. You won’t be disappointed.

“Never forget that I was your first real kiss. Never forget that you’ll be my last. And never stop loving me between all of them. Never stop, Charlie. Never forget.” Silas races against time as more truths unravel, while others twist tighter together. And now, the stakes are higher as Silas’ control slips and others begin to point fingers. Charlie is in trouble and he must be the one to bridge the chasm between their past and their present. Because somewhere between I love yous and Never Nevers and Never Agains, a truth they can't imagine, beckons to be found. “Where are you, Charlie?”

Part two of Never Never was better than part one for the most part but having it in these tiny little parts take away from the story.

The story takes off right from where the first left off, with Silas having had his memory/mind…reset and in the car. Charlie is nowhere to be found and that is Silas’ mission, to find her before they come across the 48 hours again. The mystery in this was okay. There was just the same old stuff and not much has come to light in the story. I would stop reading it but I’m in it to finish it now. I do hope that Part three will be it because 100 pages every so month is silly.

There really isn’t much to say about this part except that it was the same as part 1 but a little more infuriating because you don’t get many answers.

Review: See You at Harry’s by Jo Knowles

See You at Harry's by

See You at Harry’s was a really heartbreaking book. I mean, I pretty much teared up or cried through the last half of the book. This book deals with quite a few different aspects that Fern and her family have to deal with. Fern has two brothers and one sister. Her brothers are Holden and […]

Book to Movie: The Duff

When I first heard that The Duff was being made into a movie I can’t say that I was thrilled. I did not care for the book The Duff at all. So, why would I like the movie, right? I had heard from other people that the movie didn’t follow the book so I thought […]

Review: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

me_earl_dying_girl

This is yet another young adult book that is being turned into a movie. This is yet another book that has gotten a lot of positive reviews and hype up the wall and that just wasn’t good to me. There was a lot of funny parts, mainly with Earl but there was about 95% of […]

Review: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

an_ember_in_the_ashes

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir got so much hype it was unreal. In fact, it got so much that I was really excited to read it even though I’ve been pretty bored with Dystopians for awhile. The cover is stunning and the summary of the book sounds good enough, right? Interesting with […]
