A nostalgic graphic novel

Ghost World
Ghost World

By: Daniel Clowes

Genre: YA graphic novel

Pages: 80

Published: 2001

Read: February

3 out of 5

It took me a bit to get into this story, but I did eventually get sucked in. I enjoyed the nostalgic journey this story evoked – there is some aspect of this story that everyone can relate to. While teens may benefit from the humor of the characters I feel the story is written for adults to reminisce their own teen years – nothing wrong with that! I did not care for the mint green coloring of the graphics. I found the coloring very distracting and feel black and white would have been more appealing.  After having read two graphic novels this week, I still haven’t found one better than the biographically written ones.
