Graphic Novel review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush: The Graphic Novel, #1) 
Hush Hush; The Graphic Novel (part one)
by Becca Fitzpatrick
 & Various illustrators
Genre(s): Graphic Novel, paranormal
Pages: 120
Published: March 2012
Publisher: Sea Lion Books
Summary:  For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes tham at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgement.





Review: Ummmm....where is the rest of the book? That is the first thing I want to know. This is list priced at $19.95 and it only covers the first 5 chapters of the book?!

So, there really isn't much to say about the summary of this. We meet the characters, Nora, Patch and Vee.  Patch teases Nora, Nora doesn't like Patch and feels stalked by him. Mystery man breaks through Vee's windshield to get at Nora. That's it! Nothing more. Seriously. I feel this was a half inch thick teaser.

The good-plot line stuck to the story. Word-for-word enough times even. And the artwork is just mediocre. 

The bad-the characters look nothing how the book describes them! Nora is really bad. Wrong hair and she is dressed in clothes I don't see anyone being allowed to wear in school. Point 2: This has too much detail for a graphic novel. Like I said, line for line copying for the book. The graphic novel covers only the first 5 chapter but is more pages than the first 5 chapters even are!

Overall, I really feel this graphic novel is bad publicity for the book and not worth the cost. I really did not like them not finishing. The story hasn't even gone anywhere yet! 
Please note, my thoughts of this graphic novel do not reflect my opinion of the book.

  1. Sounds like this one is a waste of time. I was wondering if it might be a good way to familiarize myself with the story, but I guess not!

  2. Thanks for the heads-up! I love the Hush, Hush books but I think I won't be picking this up. $19.95 is too pricey especially if it isn't great. What a shame!

  3. WHY does it only cover 5 chapters of the book?! Sounds like a waste. The price is just too pricey -- definitely not worth it if you won't even get far into the story.
