    One thought on “The Drowned: A Tale of Mystery and Horror”

    1. Well I FINALLY got this! It took me so long to find it - hint for those who try to track it down, it's rare, and expensive! But, if you a true Laini fan (like me) or a Jim fan (like me), it is well worth it. This is the first actual graphic novel I've ever read (well I did read the Daughter of Smoke and Bone sampler Jim made - and still hoping he finishes it one day), some wasn't sure what to expect. Even though this isn't a "novel", it is still a great story: Laini still manages to grab and hol [...]

    2. The story was flawlessly rich and the illustrations by Laini Taylor's husband Jim Di Bartolo added an intense and beautiful layer of creepiness.

    3. My expectations did not match this book. When I said something along those lines to my husband, he asked me if that meant it was better or worse.Hmm. I can't really answer that - not better, not worse, justunexpected.The art in this graphic novel was incredible. I just wish it could have been in color, but I do admit that the black-and-white drawings added a level of.ery?ss? the Theo's tale that probably wouldn't have been captured had the pictures been colorized.And continuing on about the draw [...]

    4. (4.5)This was not an easy book to get my hands on, but I consider it worth it. It is my personal mission to get my hands on a copy of all the books Laini Taylor has written or helped write.I was a little worried going into this that because it was a graphic novel rather than a book, that we wouldn't get to see Laini Taylor's beautiful writing, but my fears were for naught. It was also lovely to see Jim Di Bartolo's beautiful art, and while colour would have been nice, the black and white theme s [...]

    5. GRAPHIC NOVELFANTASYPECHUA KUCHA PROJECTAs someone unfamiliar with graphic novels, I enjoyed The Drowned. It tells the story of Theo, a young Frenchman who's sister was drowned thirteen years earlier. He returns to his hometown, and is confronted by his sister's ghost, who longs to escape from purgatory. The book is fast paced and a quick read, with amazing art and writing. However, I felt like the story wasn't anything too original, and I'm still a little confused by everything that happened by [...]

    6. The first few pages of this book are amazing. I loved the writing, but the art was of inconsistent quality and of a style I don''t particularly enjoy. one of my problems with the art was that many of the male characters looked too much alike making it difficlt to follow some of the action and dialogue. Overall this is a great work and I highly recommend it, but read it in one sitting not over the course of several days as I was forced to. You really loose the momentum of the story that way.

    7. I'd forgotten that I'd read this one before, but was perfectly happy to read it again. Very Poe-esque. The beginning doesn't give any indication of where it will end up; many good surprises (not that the surprises themselves were good--in fact, they were rather horrible for the characters!--but I didn't see them coming).

    8. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book written by Laini, except for this one. I had a hard time following along, and even staying interested. i feel bad saying this since i like all of her other writingsbut i was not a fan.

    9. On my quest to read all my favorite author's books, I inter library loaned this one from Oberlin It cost me $13 just to read it but to buy it would have been $30 so meh.Lots of wonderful dark Laini themes in this book. Can't wait to read what she writes next!

    10. Graphic novels are not my usual medium for stories so perhaps that's why I have to give a Laini creation less than 4-stars? There were some good points, but the story is hard to discern. The art is a bit hasty, it looks like.
