it was amazing

Despite it's length, Maroh has been able to create a deep sense of humanity with in her characters, they have been allowed to develop into believable people, and have gained their own distinctive voices, which paired with the graphics, has created an incredible novel. Without being told how the characters are feeling, or even what they are doing, the reader is able to feel the emotion and establish a connection between the book and themselves. Maroh is incredibly talented to be able to have done this in such a short amount of space - she has achieved in her relatively short graphic novel, what most novelists seek to achieve in a three-hundred page novel. A small part of me wishes that I would have actually participated in French lessons at school, as I would now be able to read Blue in it's native tongue, and be able to appreciate it for how Maroh had originally written it, rather than for what the translator has interpreted.
