A cute gay romance/drama

4 stars

I have known the comics for a while now and actually enjoyed reading them, so I decided to also read the source material (I did not like the movie …). I was surprised how different the book was, to what I had remembered. I did enjoy it and it was well written and it was nice to read more than just a YA novel, but read about someone slightly older than that as well. Some of the main character’s decisions I found very odd and a bit stupid, maybe even unrealistic—but then there is lots of different brains out there. I will definitely continue the book series to see if things fit will together.

What a lovely origins story

4 stars

I really enjoyed this origins story. Well done and nice to read about young versions of all the characters. What a sad story in the present. I had read the book that follows this and finally got an explanation of what happened. I wish it wasn’t so.
