    (Source picture: Instagram @melissa_reads) I would only recommend this to people who've already read the book(s). Because if I didn't already have all those feels about Day and June, I don't think I would have liked it that much. Yes, it is quite rushed but obviously that's normal. The graphics are awesome and it absolutely lived up to my imagination (I just imagined Metias hotter :p). All the feels I had when I read the book came back to me and now I definitely want to reread it!

    I’ve made some terrible decisions in my life, but I haven’t made one THIS bad in a while :’) I mean, I was barely 20 pages in and I was already tearing up BC DAMMIT MARIE LU CAN YOU NOT BE A MONSTER FOR 25 SECONDS SHEESH Anyways, I just want everyone to know that I love my husband Day Altan Wing with all my heart and I would die for him. That’s all. Also the graphics are 11/10 (tho, the characters are supposed to be Asian and they don’t look Asian, what the hell is that about???!!)

And the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together and the lengths their country will go to in order to keep its secrets. I was a huge fan of the Legend trilogy. So, when I saw this at the library I had to pick it up. I usually don't read that many book to graphic novel adaptations but the cover art looked promising. I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by it's cover but I think judging a graphic novel by it's cover is acceptable. This graphic novel was very similar to the book, which I really appreciated. They hit all of the major plot points of the book and even added a couple details that added to the plot. There were quotes in the graphic novel that came straight from the book. The appearance of the characters were spot on. All of these small details just added up and made the reading experience 10x better. The art style wasn't my favorite, it was nice and simple which made the story easy to follow, but it was very stereotypical "manga". Granted, that art style is amazing but I don't think it really fit the story it was portraying. The color scheme was very simple and dull, they used lots of greens and browns. This did however compliment the art style and the story. The story was fast paced and easy to follow, even when the fight scenes got a little dicey. There were a couple scenes that were rushed, that could have been drawn out better. But, overall I really enjoyed experiencing the book again. If you want a re-fresher of Legend this graphic novel is very loyal to the book and was very enjoyable.

    The characters looked awesome but it was way too short. They left out so much and the stuff that made it in it was rushed and totally out of pace. Sad me.

    OVERVIEW If you've already read and loved Legend, definitely pick up a copy of the graphic novel! It'll be enough to bring back your feels and memories. If not, skip it. There isn't enough details for you to get a complete Legend experience. No, seriously. I'm a HUGE fan of Legend, and I legitimately got the feels before Day and June even met. I can't help being a fangirl, okay? It's in my system. ART AND COLOR The art felt a lot like manga for me, which of course won me over.

I can't help being a fangirl, okay? It's in my system. ART AND COLOR The art felt a lot like manga for me, which of course won me over. The artwork wasn't detail-heavy, and there were a few awkward-looking parts, but it was smooth and clean. Also, I don't like my guys with long hair, but the artist managed to make Day look like a lovely anime character, so bonus points for that! And June is gorgeous. That hair. #goals. The coloring's pretty simple. There are a few parts where it's bit light, as if there was this sort of slight fog over everything, but for the most part, it's just normal coloring. DETAILS Like I said earlier, you won't understand the story too much if you haven't read the actual novel yet. There's enough details and dialogue to get the gist of things, but there will be important details you're going to miss. The story's still the same, no changes, but really just lacks some parts. PACING The pacing is horrid, mostly because of the lack of details. This is a general downside of graphic novels, so it didn't really bother me too much. It made the romance extremely rushed, and there were many scenes that just popped out of nowhere and had no foreshadowing. Just a fair warning to anyone who plans to read this but hasn't read the actual book yet.

    This ended up being really good! I liked the dystopian world and characters. The pace was good and the art was fantastic. At first I wasn't sure where the story was going but I loved where it went. Lots of different emotions with this one. would recommend this to people who enjoy world building and dystopian fiction.

    So cool to have a graphic novel of Legend! Definitely don't read it until you've read Legend because it won't make sense. Due to its drastically shorter length than the original book, it obviously removed a lot of details - some which I didn't mind and other that I did. I docked a star for that and also that it felt a bit choppy at times. Definitely makes me want to pick up the trilogy for a reread though! I hope they continue and make graphics novels for the other two books as well!

    I'd forgotten about the existence of this book until accidentally chancing upon it at a bookstore the other day. Naturally, I had to purchase it instantly in my haste, and proceeded to start reading it straight away– only to be sorely disappointed. Perhaps the fault lies in my unrealistic expectations; perhaps all visualizations of books are usually played out like this.

Naturally, fitting in 300 pages worth of writing into 160 worth of visuals is an impossible task– but for me, this graphic novel failed to do the characters any justice or create any real sense of connection between them as it races to get to the end of the story. It's a decent middle school "action-adventure" comic at best, but a terrible graphical representation for the book in my opinion. Only redeeming quality that helped it gain its extra star is the artwork alone, one of the primary components that encouraged me to pick this up in the first place. (Also, I'd like to award this book for being the quickest read of my life with how remarkably short it is. I'd suggest anyone to just take a nice 30 minutes out of their time at the bookstore and finish this in one sitting rather than spend needless money over it.) ________________ 2014 moi: !!!!!!!!!!!!!! All I can really manage at this point.

    I didn't realize I already read this... Review below!!! ----------------------------------------------- This was one of the best book to graphic novel adaptations I have ever read. It's essentially Legend with pictures, which made it a little confusing to understand some things because Marie Lu's descriptions make the story feel real.

With the bulk of the descriptions gone, though, it was very hard to understand, and if the reader has never read the actual book, then they are going to feel VERY lost. But I also wish it was longer. It felt like a lot of content was cut because it needed to fit into a 160 page format, damn you publishers. I really hope that the rest of the series is allowed more room because they definitely have a lot more meat to the story that absolutely NEEDS to be in it. Because without it, the Legend Trilogy wouldn't be the trilogy I learned to love so much. PLEASE UNIVERSE MAKE THE NEXT TWO LONGER!!! The art was beautiful though, stunning to say the very least, and really was suited for a story that is heavy in politics and romance. To say the very least the story and art fit together nicely it is like one of those soul mate relationships that everyone wants. I was even a little jealous myself :P Overall, it was a nice little graphic novel that I picked up (and I'm glad I did because I got to see Day! *drools a little*), and I am looking forward to picking up the rest.

    I loved the drawings, but it was so short and some scenes seemed a bit rushed. Nevertheless, it brought back the feels, and now I want to reread the whole trilogy!

I zipped through this in less than 30 minutes and found myself feeling exactly the way I did 3 years ago after finishing. The graphic novel is very similar to the real novel. However, there are some plot holes since the graphic novel is marginally shorter. Everything is going by so fast. Events from left and right. There really is no character development, which is something that is a really big deciding factor for if I like a book or not. It was really great that the characters were already developed for me since I had read the trilogy before. However, I would recommend reading the trilogy first before picking up the graphic novels. My rating system: (I do use half stars.) 5 - I do not use the 5 star. Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect. 4 - I loved it! There weren't too many flaws, and I had no trouble getting through it. (A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book.) 3 - I enjoyed the book, but there we're flaws that made me enjoy it less. 2 - I finished the book, but there were too many flaws for me to enjoy it. 1 - I could not finish the book, and I probably did not finish it....

Pero no, la verdad es que no soy así, o quien sabe, quizá sí lo soy. Pero en este libro es tan obvio e innegable, que en cuanto lo note, fue imposible dejar de notarlo. Todos los personajes en esta novela son de piel blanca y rasgos caucásicos, y no se nos da una explicación del porqué. No tiene ningún sentido, porque es una historia basada en USA del futuro. Sería lógico tener más diversidad, lastimosamente ni a la autora, ni al ilustrador pensaron en eso. Y solo por eso, toda la historia pierde credibilidad. Y me quita las ganas por completo de leer mas de esta autora. En todo el libro solo encontré 2 personajes con piel de color, y solo fueron un par de extras en el fondo de la escena. 📚SINOPSIS HONESTA: Adolescente atractiva perfecta, intenta encontrar a un terrorista adolescente atractivo y perfecto. Lo encuentra, se enamoran, terminan acurrucaditos a bordo de un tren, frente a un futuro incierto. Ni siquiera es spoiler, ya que es el mismo final genérico de varias novelas distopícas juveniles. No he leído la novela principal, pero me pareció que esta adaptación esta muy apresurada. Todo pasa muy rápido, no tenemos presentación de este nuevo mundo, no nos cuenta como llegamos a ese futuro, vemos muy poco de los protagonistas, por lo que imposible encariñarse con ellos o entender sus motivaciones. Lo único positivo, es que se lee muy rápido.

    Okay, so, this was a super quick read, but it was still amazing! For the life of me I couldn't picture June (I kept thinking, how can a ponytail be elegant?), but this really helped. Now I see her! Anywho, it made me so happy to see Day and June kiss, just a cute fan girl squee moment.

The Legend trilogy is one of my favourite dystopian series. (Random but my mum is also a fan.) When I found out that it was going to be a graphic novel, I was really excited. I've been reading them a lot more lately and I always find interpretations of stories really interesting. I can appreciate them in their own way, whether they are graphic novels, movies or TV shows, regardless of how they match up with my personal vision. It has been a while since I've read the first book, so it was nice to return to the story. Naturally, it's not the book page-for-page and a lot does seem to be cut out. However, generally it follows the plot of the first book and is a quick and easy read full of action. The ending brought back the same feelings I had while reading the book. I personally think that it lacks the depth of the novels, so perhaps readers who are interested in the plot might gain more from reading the trilogy first or at least bearing in mind that this graphic novel adaptation has its limitations. (Which is to be expected with adaptations - adaptation being the key word.) I wish that there was more text. This worked in the graphic novel's favour by making it a fast-paced read and emphasising both the art and action, but it did mean the dialogue and themes were lacking in my opinion. The art in Legend is nice and colourful. A lot of scenes matched quite closely to my imagination's version while reading. Yet I did sometimes get confused with who was who because some characters looked quite similar, and I wasn't expecting June and Day to be as pale as they were. I'd recommend the Legend graphic novel to fans of the trilogy. It's a nice way to revisit the world that's a lot less time-consuming than re-reading the books.

    GAGO ANG SAKIT PA RIN! Anyway, cool art but I do think this graphic novel didn't depict Legend perfectly or at least convincingly. The connection is not there between the main characters. It helped that I loved the novel so remembering what I've read (and loved) while reading this graphic novel was enough.

The graphic, drawing, coloring etc side of this graphic novel is beautiful. i LOVE how the cartoonist(?) drew june and day. I don't like long-haired guys but Day is perfect in this, and well, June is gorgeous. Bonus point for that.

I know you cant fit the entire plot into a graphic novel bcs they need it brief and precise but seriously???? its HORRIBLE. There is lack of details, lack of background story, lack of world-building explanations, lack of emotions, so in general it lacks in everything. You get the most important point and the basic gist of if but other than that? Nothing. The story is still the same, thank God. The romance. The romance was extremely rushed. Super extremely rushed. EVEN MY "SWEETHEART" SCENES GOT CUT OFF URGH But then again, it's graphic novel and its normal to have everything rushed. But for a reread, it definitely brings back the feels. I left this world around a year ago and reading this back, makes me want to reread the trilogy all over again. I REALLY LOVE THIS TRILOGY thank goodness i bought this for rm5, if i were to buy this at its original price (rm60) I'd definitely throw a tantrum

Due to it being a little fast-paced for my taste. I had a hard time keeping up with what was going on and that made me very frustrated and want to stop reading the book. Just when I started to understand what was going on the book would switch point of view. It was quite a change for me to read a novel with pictures, but a good change at that! This graphic novel was easy, quick, and a fun read. It didn't linger on scenes too long and I felt had the perfect amount of pages.The illustrator did a great job with the pictures. They were exactly how I pictured it when reading the original novel. Of course it is hard to relate to characters in graphic novels. The novel was missing that emotional part of the journey. It probably would have been helpful if I had read this book first and then the chapter book. Then I would have felt as if I had read a long list of spoilers. This book was kind of an outline with pictures to get you ready for the chapter book. I highly recommended this action-packed graphic novel to everyone!

    It’s been 2 years since I’ve read Legend, and reading this illustrated edition has me begging again for more! So MUCH feelings came rushing back after I’ve finished this and I never thought how much I’ve missed Day and June! Ohh, how precious they are! I’m really looking forward to have a reread of the Legend trilogy soon!

    Did I cry? I sure did 😭😭 I loved reliving this book again but this time in a different form, and its just as good!! Definitely would have to have read the book in order to read the graphic novel, because its too short for it to cover everything from the book. But I loved it, Legend a favorite book of mine :) and the GRAPHICS!!! are AMAZING!!
