Beautiful Creatures: The Graphic Novel by Kami Garcia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I will preclude this review by saying I have never seen the film or read the novel version of this story, but now, I'm planning on doing both.
What I Liked:
-great characterization (for everyone except Lena)
-artistic symbolism and imagery
-interesting blending of supernatural/fantasy mythos
-elements of mystery
-beautiful art (other reviewers have complained about the sketchy style, but I think it added a depth and rawness to the characters)
What I Didn't Like:
-distinct lack of Southern culture
-Lena felt very flat until the end. There was no character progression for her until the final few pages.
