Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life - Bryan Lee O'Malley | Review

Scott Pilgrim is a series of graphic novels which has been popular for quite some time. There was a (really quite good) movie adaptation, it got republished in colour, there has been six or something volumes... it's popular. However, it's taken me quite a few years to finally pick up the first volume, but because of it's popularity I was expecting good things.

For the most part, I enjoyed it. It's a fun and light read, although it took me a while to get invested in it. I disliked most of the characters, although I think to an extent that was intentional on O'Malley's part. It's very much the setting up of the world, and the story and nothing really 'big' happens until right until the end. However, those last few pages definitely made me want to read the next book in the series as soon as my library request comes through.

I do wish the library had the new colour version of the book though, just for my own selfish reading reasons!

  1. I've not read the coloured version, but I've read the first three books. I'm still getting round to the rest. But I loved them. They're so fun, and can be read in about an hour. :) x
