3,5/5 ⭐ Une lecture très rapide mais plutôt sympathique : j’ai passé un bon moment même si je n’ai pas trouvé l’écriture incroyable. Je dois avouer que je m’attendais quand même à en apprendre davantage sur les personnages, il n’y a pas assez de nouveautés à mes yeux (surtout pour Archi et Jughead, je trouve qu’on en apprend davantage sur Betty et Veronica). Même si ce livre se passe juste avant la série Riverdale, je pense que c’est mieux de voir la saison 1 avant de le lire ! ...more

3.5. I am a fan of the tv show so I when I saw this audiobook, I decided to check it out. The audiobook narration was great, and the characters’ voices sounded a bit like their show characters.

The Veronica character was written very unlikable and spoilt in this book, which is why I couldn’t rate it higher.

3'25🌟 Ha sido una lectura que he disfrutado ya que la serie me está encantado y la verdad es que tenía curiosidad por saber que era de la vida de nuestros protagonistas antes del gran acontecimiento. Me ha tenido bastante enganchada por lo que el libro no me ha durado mucho que digamos pero es que la pluma de Micol Ostow es muy ligera y logra atraparte. Si habéis visto la serie o tenéis pensado hacerlo, os recomiendo muchísimo que leáis el libro porque os va a presentar a los personajes y os dar ...more

Mit dieser „Vorgeschichte“ habe ich jetzt nicht mehr Wissen als zuvor. Der Schreibstil gefiel mir auch leider überhaupt nicht und die Charaktere wirkten etwas zu kindisch, obwohl sie mir in der Serie viel reifer vorkamen. Nach jedem Kapitel gab es ein SMS-Verlauf was nichts mit den Kapiteln zu tun hatte und auch andere Seitenfüller wie Wetterberichte und ähnliches.

Предистория или фенфикшън е „Riverdale: Предишният ден“


Здравейте, четящи!

Тук съм да ви донеса поредното ревю и мнението си за още една нова книга, имено – „Riverdale: Предишният ден“.
Така наречената предистория на сериала или поне така маркетирана.
Нека ви обесня, какво не ми хареса и какво ми хареса в книгата.


Аз съм мега, даже гига фен на Riverdale! Гледам го от самото начало и обожавам сериалът. Честно казано мисля, че е леко гениален – винаги има изненади в него и досега не съм срещнала повта

Persönliche Meinung
Ich gehör ja zu den wenigen die Riverdale bisher nicht gesehen haben und als ich zu dem Buch griff, wusste ich rein gar nichts über die Serie. Nur das sie mir schon ein paarmal von Freunden empfohlen wurde.

Vorneweg kann ich sagen, dass dieses Buch für Fans sicherlich cooler ist, als für das Volk der Unwissenden. Da es doch einige Charaktere hat, besonders Nebencharaktere, die nicht wirklich vorgestellt werden. Es eignet sich aber auch gut als Einstieg und für diejenigen die ne

First off, this is a book written for the fans of the Riverdale tv show. There are some spoilers for the first season of the tv show and if you haven’t seen that one yet, I wouldn’t recommend reading the book yet. It will take away some of the enjoyment of unraveling the mystery. But when you did see the show, it’s so much fun to see some of the events leading up to murder mystery.
As a fan off the show, I thought the main characters, Berry, Veronica, Jughead and Archie, felt like they did at the

„Riverdale“ ist eine trotz ihrer nicht zu verleugnenden stetig abnehmenden Qualität eine der populärsten Jugendserien, die momentan auf Streaming-Plattformen kursieren. Die zahlreichen Logiklöcher, Ungereimtheiten und sprunghaften Erzählstrukturen, die den Zuschauer völlig im Dunkeln lassen, sind einer Zählung nicht mehr wert, die nämlich sonst den Rahmen sprengen würde. Dennoch merke auch ich noch immer eine Anziehungskraft, die das nach wie vor vielversprechende Szenario auf mich ausstrahlt un ...more

2.5/5

Les fans de la série y trouveront leur compte, pour ma part je l’ai trouvé anecdotique et peu nécessaire. Par ailleurs, le livre n’est clairement pas accessible à ceux qui n’ont pas vu la série et ne permet pas d’ailleurs de donner envie de la découvrir. Livre « compagnon » de l’univers de Riverdale, on retrouve les personnages avec des storylines sans grand intérêt. Une lecture qui reste agréable.

The writing was decent enough. Not sure if the author really captured the essences of the characters, or if that was done for her by the show. Not much new information. I didn't expect there would be, as this is "the day before" and we're already deep into season 3. I'm a fan of books and comics that are extra and tie in to the original, but not if they're just rehashing things we already know.
Susan
I think if you've watched the first season of the TV show you can skip this. It is really just a rehashing of what we already know. Very little is new except for a bit about Betty's internship in California which is mildly entertaining and way too much about Veronica's life in New York. She is insufferable and so, so dull. Her sections were the absolute worst. Jughead sounded like Jughead which was a highlight and Archie sounded like Archie which as you can imagine was not a highlight. If you ar ...more
Adriana
I could easily get into this story thanks to the TV series and the flow of the story. All the characters felt like themselves the majority of time. I think Only Betty and Archie had a couple of moments towards the end that were written a little differently than expected. Overall, this was an easy and fun read.

Longer review to come.

Vorweg: Ich kenne die Serie Riverdale leider nicht. Noch nicht. Ich möchte ich sie mir auf jeden Fall noch angucken. Warum ich dennoch unbedingt dieses Buch lesen wollte? Es sprach mich einfach sofort an, allein schon das Cover finde ich klasse. Da es sich hier um die Vorgeschichte zur Serie handelt, hoffte ich sehr, dass man das Buch auch ohne das Wissen aus der Serie gut lesen kann.

Herzlich willkommen in Riverdale, einer beschaulichen Kleinstadt, die auf den ersten Blick ganz ruhig und unschu

Leuk om te lezen als je Riverdale keek, maar niet geweldig. Ik had meer nieuwe informatie verwacht en dat kwam niet. Ook de personages vond ik te oppervlakkig overkomen in het boek. Recensie volgt nog op MustMag.nl

I was pretty excited about this book. I've been a massive fan of the Archie comics and Riverdale and I wanted insight into the events that happened before the show aired. So, of course I pre-ordered this when a friend tipped me off to it being published.

I'm not going to lie, I was majorly disappointed with it. The only parts I really liked were Betty's (we literally had no clue what she was up to in LA). Although I hated where Micol Ostow left off in her POV. And also, there was no clue or reas

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know that I don’t watch a lot of TV shows. My main focus is books. So, when I end up talking about a TV show on this blog, it usually means that I am quite obsessed! And, well, that is definitely the case with Riverdale. (You can read all about my journey with the first season of the show in the link provided in the intro paragraph of this post.)

I'm a huge Riverdale fan.

When it first came out, I hadn't watched or read anything Archie comics-related in a long time - not since my childhood, when I was a watcher of Archie's Weird Mysteries. But as soon as I watched the first episode, I immediately knew I was going to love the show. I spent a couple days getting caught up on the episodes, then began watching it weekly and avidly.

So then, a couple years later, I was checking out a local bookstore to see if they had any of the Riverdale grap

I first came across this book at Target. The cover feels very bland to me, but it works with the trademark title of Riverdale--those standing, vibrant blue block letters that give a sense of intrigue and mystery.

The subtitle, "The Day Before" explains what to expect from this novel, especially for those who have seen the TV show. The novel takes place literally the day before the fateful gunshot is heard out in the woods, the day before Jason Blossom goes missing.

The book features the perspectiv

Riverdale – der Tag davor von der Autorin Micol Ostow ist im Januar 2019 bei cbt erschienen. Ich habe mich wahnsinnig auf das Buch gefreut, denn es erzählt die Vorgeschichte zur Serie Riverdale, von der man sich zurzeit alle drei Staffeln auf Netflix angucken kann.

Wer Fan der Serie ist, wird um dieses Buch nicht drum herum kommen. Allein das Cover lädt bereits zum Lesen ein. Darauf zu sehen ist die Silhouette eines Kopfes in dem man den Blackwood Forest sieht, der Wald in dem

Wie so viele andere hat auch mich die Netflix-Serie Riverdale in ihren Bann gezogen. Worum geht es in der Serie? Eigentlich ist Riverdale eine unschuldige Kleinstadt, doch seit dem tragischen Tod von Jason Blossom ist nichts mehr wie es war. Archie Andrews, der mehr über Jasons Tod weiß, als er zugibt, hält wichtige Informationen unter Verschluss, weil er selbst ein großes Geheimnis hütet. Betty, Archies Nachbarin und beste Freundin, ist in Archie verliebt und hat Schwierigkeiten damit, ihm sein ...more

Hoewel ik momenteel nog een paar maanden achterloop met Riverdale, vind ik Riverdale wel een geweldige serie die goed in elkaar zit. De personages zijn uniek, echt en realistisch en hoewel de gebeurtenissen in Riverdale op zijn zachts gezegd bizar zijn, kan ik toch heel erg meeleven. Ik was dan ook erg benieuwd naar dit boek, dat net iets meer inzicht zou geven in wat er aan de serie vooraf is gegaan.

Het eerste wat opvalt is dat het boek heel lekker en vlot wegleest. Ik heb over het complete boe

I love Riverdale so of course when I saw this book at Barnes and Noble I had to buy it and I wish I could say I love it as much as I loved the show but really I didn't.

It's nothing to do with the fact that it's set the day before Jason goes missing and a lot of the stuff was revealed in the first season because it was nice getting glimpses of the characters before the start of the show.

My main issues were that the characters seemed off and not like they are on the show. The only character who re

Si hay algo de la serie de Riverdale que me encanta, es la ambientación pueblerina y tan de los años 80. Por algo tenía ganas de hacerme con este libro y ampliar un poco más toda la información posible.
Esta precuela nos traslada al Riverdale de antes de la serie. Lo que sucede en el libro es justo el día de antes de cuando empieza la serie y aunque en la primera temporada nos aclaran cómo suceden los hechos, este libro pretende ampliar un poco más la información.

3.5 stars - This was honestly so much better than I expected it to be; if you're a fan of the Riverdale TV series, you'll probably enjoy this!

While we get to read from all of our favorite character's POV's, my favorite ended up being Veronica's. Her portion of this book read like a much better written Gossip Girl book and really gave so much insight to her life back in NYC.

It was a bit weird that every story from the Riverdale Vol. 3 graphic novel was incorporated into this story somehow. To a f

I thought that this book was good but I didn't love it. My mum bought me this since she knows how much I love Riverdale so I was so excited to read this book and I wasn't too disappointed.

I loved how the story was told in multiple points of view, I thought that it really worked well with the book. I liked how each of the characters had there own storylines, Betty was in LA, Archie was with Ms Grundy, Jughead was working at the Twilight and Veronica was living in Manhattan. I thoug
