it was ok

I admit picking this up to see what the hype was about. But I'm probably not the best person to judge since I'm not an avid graphic novel fan... and after reading this I'm not so sure I'd consider it a "novel." I just don't feel like I read a work of literature. Some of the characters were very interesting and I wanted to learn more, but those were either killed off early or not focused on as much. I was annoyed by the whiny characters who carried a lot of the story. And the ending felt rushed and implausible to me. The gravity and devastation of the climax was not well captured. I think I'd still like to see how it translates to film though.
