The graphic novel is about the book instead of the movie, which thrills me because the characters are drawn as described in the book! I love the color (when they use it) and their sketching styles.
Only parts of this graphic novel were drawn and that was extremely frustrating, considering that the creators obviously had enough talent to create beautiful and realistic landscapes, spaces, and other objects. The characters were beautifully drawn, but I was extremely annoyed and angered that a) talent was not used to it's full extent, and b) the creators did not see fit to award me, the consumer, a complete product.
Don't by unless willing to spend 20$ but so worth it so beautiful and well made if u like it the new moon one is coming out October 30th according to the artists site so five stars I am team Jacob but team edward in da books
The artwork is beautiful, but like the other reviewer, I thought this was the whole first book (volume1 as in book 1). That's not the case. There are 2volumes to the first book and it's $20 total. Please make this clearer...the graphic novel is awesome, but I didn't realize it wasn't the whole thing. Label it Part 1 of 2 in the title or something
Love Twilight!!!! I bought the graphic novel but never got time to read it. So happy it's an app now!! And NOW I see they already have Vol.2, even more happy!! Now all they need is BUFFYTVS!!!
Wow I loved it and the art work is amazing
I love this only problem is it keep cutting off on me. I start getting in to it and it closes on me.
I finished it so fast lol I wish the 2nd volume was out it's a really good book
Thank you for finally releasing the full version. It's a beautiful, new way to enjoy the novel.
Loaded this on my iPhone and it does not open $10.00 down the drain.
First off I did not know the total price would be $20 and second off it didn't download for me . . . So I was really mad about $20 in the trash. But I gave it 2 stares because the art work is beautiful. But still overall not worth the $20. Hopefully if you get it, it will work for you.
Truly, this is a beautiful book, but if I had known the whole book costs $20, I wouldn't have bought it. I thought the first book was volume one, not the first book was two separate volumes! Buy them if you can afford it, but I need to spend that money on groceries instead.
Save your money--poorly written and poorly edited. Artwork leaves a lot to be desired!!!!!!!!!!
