Á The Great Gatsby: A Graphic Adaptation by Nicki Greenberg of the Novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald ☆ Download by ô Nicki Greenberg I love the Great Gatsby, it s one of my favourite novels I was glad this adaptation was edited in a way that kept a lot of the original writing in. It was fun to read, but I did grow tired of the sepia scrapbook theme It would have been nice to have the scrapbook at the beginning then gone in to one of the photos and had full colour and full page spreads I didn t like the under the sea characters much either, it didn t add anything really. at this point i m so sick of hearing about the great gatsby despite enjoying it that reading a graphic novel version was just not fun. Nicki Greenberg, With Her Bold Illustrative Style, Retells F Scott Fitzgerald S Classic The Great Gatsby In A Brilliant, Innovative Graphic Novel In The Exquisitely Realized Setting Of S New York, A Throng Of Fantastical Creatures Play Out The Drama, The Wry Humour, And The Tragedy Of The Novel Nicki Greenberg Is Reverently Faithful To The Plot, Mood, And Characterization Of The original And Brings To Life The Glitter, The Melancholy, And The Grand And Crumpled Dreams Of Fitzgerald S Unforgettable Characters I ve rated this with allowance for the medium, in which I think Greenberg s fantastical character renditions in sepia lovingly and very accurately capture and hold together F Scott Fitzgerald s personal, dramatic vision of an era s dreams in slow, sunset like demise. Of the original novel to which this adaptation is remarkably faithful , I can only say that while the understated vigour and inventiveness of the language are commendable but on the whole it felt overripe by turns , it had limited appeal to me I ve often wondered why this ambivalence should be when it passes as a matter of course that the novel is most everywhere well loved A fuzzy kind of answer may be that Fitzgerald, for all the smooth, measured reminiscences and musings he presents through the narrator, doesn t set up enough support for the broad, timeless parable he seems to be aiming for Make 3. 5Talita and I read this in a record breaking 50 minutes I hate the Great Gatsby and gave it a generous 3 stars and purely because of the copious amounts of nipples in this book combined with the fact that Nick is a slug, I will rate this book 3. 5 stars That is all. If you are not a comic book writer or illustrator I d suggest attending talks where these folk sometimes one and the same person talk about their process In my case it has highlighted some of the ingenuity that my eyes have taken for granted I always find that in reading a comic or graphic novel that I am missing, at least consciously, some of the artistry that exists in the image work. I had the great pleasure of listening to Nicki Greenberg talk about the process of adapting works to the visual form It was literally eye opening, hearing her talk about choices, obstacles and opportunities for conveying information in the comic visual genre. Nicki is quite famous for having sold her first The Digits series, while still in high school The Great Gatsby adapted from the F Scott Fitzgerald classic was her labour of love An enjoyable, quick read after having read this many, many years ago in high school.
reading this is like pulling teeth elijah cashin, 2019 For something that was an adaptation of a classic, this was one of the most unique things I have read The fact that it captured the heart of the original with its own style left me amazed at just how well it translated to page. The art style and layout even fitted the story quite well with the photo album layout and sepia tone photos though will state the sepia tone needed to be a bit brighter A brilliant presentation of Scott Fitzgerald s The Great Gatsby, through a different medium accompanied by an abridged, but unaltered, version of the original text. The artwork is quite bizarre, and yet somehow seems to blend perfectly with the story and its setting The essence of the characters shines in a way that is very different to the medium of text or even film, only because Nicki Greenberg did an amazing job at it. If you are a fan of the original, this will only enrich your affection for the masterpiece that is The Great Gatsby.
