It was very good. Although it's been two years since I've read the enriched book, I was it was a blur since everything was just revived right in front of my eyes; I was crying of joy. The small broken sequence in the intro was fabulous. The main key points are all there and the suspense were brought in a smoothly and eccentric way. I just loved it. The characters, setting and plot were really good. I was left wanting more

After reading another series I had loved that was turned into a graphic novel, I decided to try out the Legend graphic novels as well. I was not disappointed. There is a lot left out, but that is mainly descriptive language that is explained via pictures instead. The illustrations are gorgeous and I really felt like they captured the characters well. The story line stayed true to the original book and it was great getting back into this story and this world after so long. This is a wonderful dystopian series and if you enjoy dystopia and/or graphic novels, I think you will really enjoy Legend.

After reading the graphic novel of Legend by Marie Lu, I have to say that I enjoyed the story and the anime-style artwork. Through hearing about the graphic novel (on Goodreads), I also learned about the Legend series. I loved the pacing of the story and how the action just works (for me anyway). The team who helped bring the novel series to comic format did a great job. Marie Lu writes a very good saga, and now I am just waiting for the next issue of the Legend graphic novel series to launch later this year.

A good start. The cover, art style, characters and story were also good. I might give the book series a read and looking forward to the next volume.
