My first impressions of this were 'interesting'. I didn't have a clue to say the least at what to expect from this book. I mean I've heard a lot of people talk but not about what it's about as such just that they've enjoyed it or that it's a well known book.
I must say I was surprised at what this book was about. I was not expecting it one bit. But... I loved it! It basically follows a girl named Katie who is a chef. She has many opportunities to make her life 'perfect' but things keep getting worse. Katie's character is almost greedy but I actually really enjoyed it. I thought the characters were great, however I would have liked a bit more on Max.
I don't know if it's just me but when I read graphic novels I find the characters really hard to connect with simply because there's not enough description as to their thoughts and feelings. I will say that one of the characters in this book, Hazel, I felt mostly connected to simply because she's a shy individual just like myself. So I can say I enjoyed that. I have to say I am also impressed how the author came up with a diverse of characters. They were all different and had their own personality which I really enjoyed.
Also... The art work guys!! That art work was the main thing of what drew me in from the beginning. It's absolutely gorgeous. Even the cover is amazing guys (mainly why I picked it up - guilty).
