it was ok
Read in October, 2008

When I walked by the book at the library, it shouted, "I am a knock-off". It looked a little bit like Lemony Snicket and his unfortunate tales, so I picked it up anyway. That it was a graphic novel based on F. Scott Fitzgerald fantasy only added to my willingness to pick it up.

It was okay. The illustrations are well done, but have no wow factor to them. The history of the fantasy is competent. It's a good thing I didn't buy the book and can return it to the library.

And, yes, there is a David Fincher movie forthcoming. If it's anything like the book, I probably won't spend good money on going to see it.

I know. You shouldn't judge a book by its movie or a movie by its book.
