Book Review: Wires & Nerve GN Series

Wires and NerveTitle: Wires and Nerve series

Author: Marissa Meyer

Release Date: 2017 & 2018

Pages: 238 & 324

My Rating: 4 & 5 stars

Synopsis: From the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder’s android, Iko, continues the story from after the last book of the novel series. She is tracking down the last of Levana’s rogue wolf-hybrid soldiers, either destroying them or sending them back to Luna. Of course, everything doesn’t always go as planned.

My Thoughts: Loved these! I am not a graphic novel fan, so loving them is saying something. It helps that I love the Lunar Chronicles already of course. I wish the schematic was a bit more colorful, but otherwise I very much enjoyed the rest of story, and aftermath of the Lunar Chronicles. The 2nd volume I like much more, there was a lot more action, and more tugging of our heart strings. Made me go “Awwww!” at the end. 🙂

Book-to-Movie Review: Room

Title: Room

I read: August 2014
My rating: 5 stars

Title: Room

Released: January 2016
My rating: 9/10
IMDb rating: 8.5/10

I read Room, by Emma Donoghue back in summer of 2014, and just watched the newly released film this month, in January 2015.

This story is told from the perspective of a 5 year old little boy, who only knows what he has experienced in his short life. He lives with his ma in Room; inside where everything is real, and everything else is outer-space, and not real. They have specific routines each day, for eating, and exercise, and sleeping. He looks forward to Sunday treat. He gets confused when Ma starts telling him stories, stories that she says are real, but has always said were pretend, before. He doesn’t understand what she means, what she wants him to do, what is happening to him, when he finally, finally, steps outside of Room.

I really, really enjoyed this book, I thought it was told so innocently, through the eyes of a 5 year old, who feels everything that is happening to him is completely normal, as it is all he has ever known. I liked how, through his perspective, things are one way, but in our own mind, we know what is really going on, what is happening beyond his understanding. It’s scary too, the situation that unfolds in this story is so realistic, things like this have totally happened, are still happening to this day. It’s sad, but then has a good ending, overall.

I also enjoyed the movie adaptation. I feel the movie follows the story in the book pretty closely. There may be one mild change in the end, but not one that is detrimental to the story. In fact, I like how it ends the movie on a slightly better, or happier, note, rather than how the book ends. Otherwise, many of the details of Jack’s observations and life are brought to us in a very similar way, from his perspective, with us knowing what’s going on, but yet lacking his understanding.

I highly recommend the book, as well as the movie, whether you have read the book or not.
