Graphic Novel Review- Anya’s Ghost

Anya-Book-TQ

Looking for friends is a universal theme that everyone struggles with. If people didn’t have such a desire for friends or human interaction, online gaming wouldn’t be as successful as it is now. Anyway, a captivating graphic novel titled Anya’s Ghost, written AND illustrated by Vera Brosgol, is about a high school girl who makes a new friend, at the bottom of a well. Now I’m sure you’re thinking, “What? No wais! That’s not where you make friends.” But for Anya this is the truth, so to speak.I’m sure you don’t want to read a novel on why this graphic novel is so great, so here’s a list on what made me purchase:

  1. Great drawing style
  2. Great colour scheme
  3. It’s about a ghost
  4. It’s about a sassy independent girl (which I greatly identify with)
  5. It’s about friendship in high school
  6. It’s about a Russian immigrant

Here’s what made me love this graphic novel:

  1. The story
  2. The story
  3. The story

Seriously, I couldn’t put this thing down! There were parts where I was reading this and had to close it out of fright/from screaming. Yes, I got really into it, in public no less, only slightly embarrassing. I was so in love with the story and characters that I took shots of some of the panels with my phone and tweeted them. True story.

    Nice review. I read the same book…literally. I actually though Anya was hot. There are some pretty sexy images of her in the book. I don’t want to give the story away…but I have to spoil the ending. Anya is actually a ghost…she had been talking to her self the whole time. it’s amazing!

    Seriously though, great story. I loved the art style — the blue-ish/Gray colors work perfect with the story and characters.
