Graphic Novels Review – The Graveyard Book : Volume 1

Cover image for The graveyard book [graphic novel] : Volume 1 / based on the novel by Neil Gaiman ; adapted by P. Craig Russell ; illustrated by Kevin Nowlan and six others.

By Neil Gaiman & P. Craig Russell

This is an adaptation of Gaiman’s original novel, brought to life by several truly talented artists. The artwork brings to life the whimsy and macabre in equal measures, and makes for a short, sharp and shiny retelling. The story is also told in episodic bites so it’s easy to pick up and put down again – but why would you want to!?

Book Review – ANF – The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister 1824-1826 : No Priest but Love

Cover image for The secret diaries of Miss Anne Lister 1824-1826 : no priest but love / edited by Helena Whitbread.

By Anne Lister.

A fascinating first-hand account of the life of real life land owner and lesbian Anne Lister. Lister kept extensive journals throughout her life in a code that wasn’t cracked until the 20th century. This is the second volume, but there’s no need to have read the first to enjoy this piece of history.
