A beautiful classic, beautiful graphics, in depth treatment
Reviewed in India on 22 November 2018
A simple but a beautiful and realistic Story. It is a story unfolding in Alabama, trhough the eyes of a kid (girl); during a period , when African Americans are still treated like sub-human by most. Not a complicated human rights story, rather a plain and simple human rights story, about all prejudices.
It is a balanced simple perspective. I have not read the original classic or seen the movie, still I felt the depth of the story. It is a book that I felt like a classic story, after a really long time ...kid's narration helps the reader to get the story in unbiased way i.e.,
The graphic novel has brought out all the characters well, I got a good feel of the characters of the story.
I liked the pictures very much. Recently all graphic books rely on intense colouring and lots of highlighting/ rendering...feels like a loud or screaming pictures. But this was very pleasant and gives realistic hue to the pictures and brings out the beauty of country side and expressions. I thank the artist for selecting this scheme of colours and pictures...
Overall it was a good experience.
