I’m sure that many of us got books for Christmas, being writers. So, feel tell us what you got/gave/read and what it’s about and what you rate it. Feel free to share other narrative forms (such as video games, movies, etc) if you want to. And if you don’t/didn’t celebrate Christmas, then feel free to talk about whatever you might be reading/watching/playing at the moment.
I got Y, The Last Man from my sister. It’s a fantastic graphic novel about the last man on earth and his pet monkey. For some reason, a plague kills all the mammals on earth with a Y chromosome except for this guy, Yorrick, and his pet monkey. It’s an interesting read and I loved every minute of it. The pacing is great and the dialogue is fantastic. The vision and scope of the writing is amazing, too. The only real issue I had with it was that I feel like the main character is a tad inconsistent. 4.5/5
I also got The Stand, by King, and it’s 1.6k pages, so I’ll give the verdict on it in a week or two >.<
