    A narrative version of the awesome graphic novels and Pratt cinematically captures what's drawn in graphics and translates it to text perfectly. I think you do need the context of the graphic novels though I think a non-graphic reader could certainly be entertained by its humor and hij...

    This book was mildly amusing, but it pales in comparison to the wildly entertaining comic book series. I am left wondering: who is the target audience here? Fans of the comics don?t need to read this ? it covers a lot of the same ground as the first volumes, and the new materia...

    Giant Days is one of my very favorite comics, the one I read the same day I buy it, without fail. I adore this series. I admittedly read this novel with trepidation, because I feared that the characters I love would be amiss, but my worries were misplaced. This novel is fun and funny, ...

    I enjoyed this a lot it captured everything that was wonderful about the comics whilst being brilliant in their own right. I loved meeting the characters in the new format and following their story through the chaos of that first few months of university and everything that the experie...

    This just never quite worked for me. I think, in part, that's due to the jumping around between characters and storylines. While this works in comics form, jumping from character to character and plot to plot within a chapter of a book leaves everything feeling a little disjointed and ...

    I adore the Giant Days graphic Novels and this was a nice addition to the already beloved series. I really enjoyed how it took place before the first Giant Days volume we got to see the characters I believe more fleshed out. They were very sympathetic and relatable. Lovers of the g...

    I am a HUGE fan of the graphic novels, so I nearly died of excitement when I found out that one of my favourite authors was writing a prequel to the series. It lived up to all my expectations: funny, sweet, action-packed and quirky. ...

    I was really excited about this novel when I first learned of it because I'm a a huge fan of the graphic novel. So when I saw it available on Hoopla, I thought it was the perfect excuse to give it a go. Let's just say I should have stuck with the graphic novel. That's not to say the...

    *flails around*My favourite girls are back, this time in novel/book form! I was absolutely ecstatic when I heard about this project. Of course, I was also worried. Would the voices/characters still be the same (important to me), how about their friendship, or their college days, wou...

    Whilst I haven't read all the comics that this novel is based from, this book stands alone. Its such a relief to have a book about university. I feel like there is such a gap in the market. As with all of Non's previous works, the characters are amazing and I immediately connected with...

    This is a lovely addition to the Giant Days canon, and a great opportunity to spend more time with characters I love. The novel manages to maintain the breezy, episodic nature of the graphic novels while still having strong plot threads that run all the way through. When I finished, I ...

    Pre-Read: Aaaaa, must read!! I hadn?t even thought about an adaptation. But now I could definitely see either Giant Days or Bad Machinery as cartoons. If they?re making Hilda, I?m sure they could do them all! ...

    *I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.* 2.5 stars I'm so BUMMED! I absolutely adore the graphic novel series this book is based off of, but just couldn't get into this. The book reads much like how the comic is... which I ju...

    Unfortunately I'm having to DNF this at 25%. The charm and whit of the original comic doesn't translate well to a novel. I knew I was taking a bit of a risk when requesting this. I love the comics and really wanted to like this, but it wasn?t to be. ...

    4/5 stars I love Giant Days. It's my favourite comic series, and, after seeing this on Netgalley, I knew I had to read it ASAP. I was fortunate enough to get access to this, and I'll definitely be buying a physical copy after how much I loved this book. As far as I can tell, thi...

    Non Pratt perfectly captures the tone, humour and characters of Giant Days, and I would definitely read more books in this world written by her! It was exactly what I expected and hoped for, and now I just want to re-read all the comics again... ...

    'Giant Days' was a bunch of marvellous fun, about the three best-est friends you could possibly read about. Non Pratt manages to take the exact essence of each character from the graphic novels and perfectly translate them into pure prose form. Each girl is equally focused on, so regar...

    I love the Giant Days comics, and I love Non Pratt's YA novels - this combination of the two is just as funny and perfect as you might expect! (14+) *Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only. If you use it in any marketing material, online or anywhere on a publishe...

    Though I had never read the graphic novels upon which this book is based, I was still all in from the very first page. As soon as I was introduced to these three ladies, I knew I wanted to know them better. ? Pro: This book was pure fun. I couldn't keep the smile off my face as I ...

    I haven't read any of the graphic novels that this is based on, so went straight into reading this with no context or idea at all of what to expect - other than I'm a huge fan of Non Pratt. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't understand some references or grasp the general characters, ...

    Giant Days is one of my favorite slice of life comics, so I was super excited to find out there was a stand alone novel based off of it. Non Pratt did a marvelous job of conveying the the quirky personalities of the various characters, their banter and antics, and the awesomeness that ...

    For a novel based on the exceptional Boom!Box comic series Giant Days, this book does the best it can. Non Pratt replicates the snappy, witty dialogue of original author John Allison with a surprising ease, and the prose is generally in-character. It felt like a warm, familiar relief t...

    I absolutely love the Comic Series, it is one of my favorites. I however, do not feel this novelization captured Susan, Daisy, and Esther the same way. I was pretty bored with the Yoga Cult by the end but I did enjoy how it was concluded. I am hoping for a sequel to the book that digs ...
