This is a beautifully told story that lingered with me for days after I finished reading it. For anyone who wants to write fiction, I strongly recommend you pick up this book and revel in Beagle's prose--it is simply magnificent.
some compare Beagle to Tolkien but I sure don't. I wasn't impressed with this but it is a classic fantasy book
I had been wanting to read this book for the past 13 years. Now that I have read it, I am glad I did. It was good. I enjoyed how there was a connection to the characters and a uniqueness about each one. The story of the unicorn as well was quite exciting yet sad all at once. It wasn't overly extraordinary. I suppose I had too high of hopes for it, but if you like stories about fantasy worlds, magicians, heroes, kings, and unicorns, this is a must read.
I got a copy of this book through netgalley(dot)com. I love this story and was excited to see how it was rendered into a graphic novel. The illustration was absolutely breathtaking and the story fast-paced and engrossing. Definitely a must for any fans of this story, of unicorns, or of beautiful rendered fantasy graphic novels.
Most people are probably familiar with the story. A beautiful unicorn decides to set out and find whether or not she is actually the last unicorn. On her journey she finds that her fellow unicorns have been trapped by an evil king. She goes on a heartbreaking quest to set her people free.
I can't say enough how much I loved the illustration throughout this graphic novel. It was just absolutely stunning. I always have imagined the unicorn as so beautiful and the illustrators really captured that image and even made it more stunning.
The story was exceedingly well told and matched the tone of the illustration perfectly. Did I mention how much I loved the artwork and illustration? I got this as an e-galley and will definitely be purchasing a hardback copy to put on my book shelf, just so I can take it out over and over and marvel at the beautiful story and artwork.
Overall I am so happy I read this. If you are a fan of this story or of unicorns or of beautiful graphic novel fantasies this is a must read.
One of my alltime favorite stories, if not my very favorite, I was thrilled to see Peter S. Beagle's work made into a graphic novel. Although I found the artwork beautiful, I was a bit disappointed that it was so similar to the style of the movie. I was hoping for a new take and feel to the story. Flows easily and follows the book almost perfectly.
