Okay, this book is not actually on the List. I picked it up from work the other day (I DO work at a library), and I decided to write about it here, just for a brief break from the List.
First of all, I wasn't sure I'd even read it. The cover said "Now a Motion Picture," so I thought it was just the graphic novel adaptation of the movie. Thankfully, it turns out to be a little prequel story. But I think you do need to see the movie in order to read this, otherwise you won't understand it.
I did enjoy reading the story. But I did NOT like the artwork (it's a graphic novel). I especially didn't like the way all the people looked.
So, in my opinion, if you liked the movie, this is worth reading. But do not get this for the art.

My friend and I first decided to go to a local used bookstore. While there, I found a book that is in the same series as the one I am currently reading (Legions of Hell by C. J. Cherryh), so it was tempting to buy that (even though I figure I am better off reading the one I have before deciding whether or not I want more). Next we went to Chapters, but nothing really caught my eye (except for a few books I've wanted for awhile). And finally we went to Coles in the mall, where I found You Suck! by Christopher Moore for only $7.99. But I managed to leave it behind! (I figure I'll go back in August and if it's still there for cheap, then I'll pick it up).
