I went into this book not knowing that it was a graphic novel. That shocked me. But I got over it quickly. This book was very engrossing and it drew me in very quickly. I enjoyed the story very much. It was cute and sweet and really really short. But I am sure that you do not want to listen to my ramblings all day so to move this along let’s go on to the characters.
I loved all the characters. They were very realistic and behaved as most of us would have if we were in there. The golden robotic horse was my favorite of all the characters. The characters grew up a lot (because most of them were kids) and learned more about themselves and how to protect what they believe is right. That is always good in a book. The main characters were very funny. I laughed a lot during the book and with the illustrations the book was even funnier. I think that the side characters could have been more detailed. They were really generic and we did not learn about them as much as we learned about the main characters. That is the only issue I had with the main characters. Otherwise they were really realistic, funny, and just really sweet.
The plot was interesting. I was curious about how the aliens got on Earth but it never said that. Like I said earlier, this was only a hundred and fifty pages so Nathan never got to do the backstory. I was sort of annoyed at this but the book made up for it by being action – packed. The art work was very detailed and accurate and that was good. It was very interesting to hear about the caravan that the technology savers traveled in. You could tell that this book was set far in the future because of all the high – tech robots it had. This book also taught a life lesson. I am not going to tell you what it is because once you finish the book you will figure it out yourself.
I enjoyed this book quite a lot and I think that everyone should read it. Please remember to fill out my survey. You can find the link on my about page. Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!!!! -Annalee and Buttons
