New Reviews

This is probably going to sound far harsher than I really intend, but can we call time of death on the Play by Play series? I have read all eight books in this series, in spite of not caring a wit about sports, but the last four or so were just not very good, and the latest is the worst of the series so far. The premise and characters are unrealistic. The plot is just a rehash of the last four books with different names. I managed to crawl through this one, but I canít help but think it might be time for Burton to consider starting over with a fresh idea.


There are a lot of graphic novel adaptations out there for Jane Austen novels. This latest venture, done in the visual style of manga, is by far the most successful Iíve read. It captures Austenís dry humor, making me laugh out loud several times. The hefty page count (triple the length of the Marvel adaptation) allows it to do the full story justice. If youíre looking for a visual adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, this is the one to buy.
