"m not usually "not usually The Longevity Diet for not saying of giving 1 star ratings when I am commenting about my readings and being that negative doesn t cause me any joy sadly when I doeel that it s necessary well I don t hesitate about it even if it s against a generally popular and praised workNo book is a 100 bill to be liked by anybodyI didn t have a clue about what was about Ghost World and after reading itI still don t have a clue about what was about itThe main characters of Ghost World are Enid Coleslaw her dad legally changed his last name Grassroots Innovation from Cohn and Rebecca Becky Doppelmeyer both 18 years old girls both just graduatedrom high school best riends and still looking out or what to do with the rest of their livesThe graphic novel doesn t show any north no real storyline just a bunch of unrelated episodes without any clear purpose where Enid and Becky basically interact with old acuaintances or new people always commenting something negative about them MUCH NEGATIVE ABOUT EVERYTHING Both Enid and Becky are very mean to everybody they are constantly pointing out their Architecture and Utopia faults calling them with offensive names and generally criticizing them behind their backs andor in theiraces Enid and Becky also have negative opinions about almost anything around them Even Enid and Becky comment in negative light about themselvesIn a Perfect Cities few cases some of the support characters deserve the negative critiue but in most cases Enid and Becky are just mean without any provocation or justificationSo I guess that since Enid and Becky are sooooooo negative about everybody and everything I don teel so bad myself Prometheus Wired for being that negative in my review about the graphic novelI have read and watch a lot of black comedy products and I have laughed plenty with them but while Ghost World tries to be humorous honestly I didn teel the impulse to laugh with it not in the least MUCH LOST ABOUT POTENTIAL It s a shame at least in my very personal opinion that Ghost World didn t exploit its own storytelling potential since the characters and ambiance were ideal to build a plot in the style of other products like the live action ilm Am lie or the animated TV series Daria Curiously enough Ghost World born in 1993 and lasted until 1997 Daria began in 1997 and Am lie is rom 2001 so one could think that maybe just maybe Ghost World could serve as an inspiration andor to open the road Special Topics in Calamity Physics for those projects but I don t knowor sure about that and after all Ghost World is a very pale image in comparison with those mentioned wonderful masterpieces MUCH MOVIE ABOUT GRAPHIC NOVEL I knew that there is a Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks film adaptation of Ghost World but I haven t been able to watch it yet After reading this graphic novel I wanted to check reading it at IMDB the premise in the movie since I wasn t able to understand how somebody would be able to pull a movie out of thisI wasn t surprised when I noticed that the movie had key changes in its core plot since the graphic novel doesn t have any plot at allSo it s understandable that theilm is different in its basics to be able to present a proper storyline to Scenes from a Revolution followAnd I heard that the movie isar FAR FAAAR better product than the original graphic novel Three and a half stars rounded upMy wife doesn t usually make graphic novel reading suggestions Three and a half stars rounded upMy wife doesn t usually make graphic novel reading suggestions when she does in order to keep a harmonious household I ll read it What have I got to lose HehShe was spot on read lucky with randomly choosing Daytripper so I gave her powers of awesome comic book prophesy another goSummary Two small town adolescent best riends share snark about dudes their uture and the very meaning of life itselfWho knew looking into the abyss could be so much Microsoft Visual C funNot much happ. Ghost World is the story of Enid and Rebecca teenageriends Soulprint facing the unwelcome prospect of adulthood and the uncertainuture of their complic.
